A Ph.D. position (assistant-doctorate) on the subject Numerical Modeling of Human Cardiovascular System is available at the Chair of Modeling and Scientific Computing of the Mathematics Department of EPFL, Switzerland.
A good background in mathematical modeling and numerical simulation of partial differential equations (possibly by the finite element method) is required. Programming skills are also welcomed.
The research will lead in three years time to a Doctorate in Mathematics. The appointed researcher is expected to dedicate up to 20% of his/her time to the teaching activities of the Chair, mainly preparation and assistance of exercise sessions (Numerical Analysis courses). Therefore, knowledge of the French language is welcomed. Successful applicants with no knowledge of French will be required to attend French courses during their first year.
Monthly salary is of approximately 3000 Swiss francs, which is quite sufficient for a single person. Candidates should send an extended CV by e-mail.
