Subject: Postdoctoral Position at University of Oslo
Postdoctoral position at the University of Oslo, Department of Informatics
The Scientific software group at the Department of Informatics has been
awarded funding for a two-year post-doc position. Applicants should
have completed, or be close to completing, a Ph.D. in scientific
computing, preferably within the field of computations based on partial
differential equations. Good programming skills and knowledge of
numerical methods are expected.
The activity of the group is presented at http://www.ifi.uio.no/~tpv/
For the post-doc project, we will focus on partial differential equations
arising in mathematical models for ultrasound applications. In medical
ultrasound imaging, the propagation of ultrasound energy is governed by
the linear and non-linear acoustic wave equation. In real-life imaging,
the medium is assumed to be homogenous, but in practice the velocity of
sound will vary. The purpose of this project is to establish a simulator
for wave propagation in human tissue in order to study problems like wave
propagation in lesions in the breast, and in general the effect of phase
aberrations on ultrasound images.
Candidates are encouraged to send an application including a CV and a
list of publications to:
