Position at CERCA

CERCA seeks applicants for a postdoctoral fellowship starting in September 2001 in the area of error estimation and mesh adaptation for the numerical solution of compressible flows. The ideal incumbent has strong experience in the development and programming of finite-volume methods on unstructured meshes, especially Jameson and Roe type schemes applied to the solution of Euler and Navier-Stokes systems of equations.

A working knowledge of error estimation and/or mesh adaptation for these equations is an important asset. C++ programming skills are desirable. Proficiency of French, although not compulsory, will be a selection criteria. The fellowship is offered for one year. Renewal for a second year is conditional upon the availability of funding.

CERCA is a not-for-profit corporation established in 1991 with a mission to support university research of interest to industry. CERCA brings together professors, research professionals, postdoctoral fellows and students with a common interest in the development of numerical methods aiming to resolve a variety of science and engineering problems.

CERCA fulfils its mission by forging partner-client relationships between university, government and industry research scientists and by providing them with the means of helping one another to train highly qualified personnel, to develop emerging technologies, to resolve technical problems and to share the knowledge resulting from R&D performed worldwide.

Those interested should send their CV to :

Dorothée Bonnet CERCA 5160, Décarie Blvd., Suite 400 Montréal, Québec H3X 2H9

Applications will be accepted until July 31, 2001 and after until the position is filled.

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 19:05.
