**Subject: iFEM3D: three dimensional version of iFEM**

iFEM3D is the three dimensional version of iFEM. It contains efficient

and simple implementation of three dimensional local refinement of

tetrahedron meshes and other components of adaptive finite element

methods. It will solve problems with size 100K unknowns in few seconds

in a laptop.

One Day Seminar on Computational Mathematics and Inverse Problems

23 January 2009

Celebrating Bob Anderssen's 70th birthday

Bob Anderssen has applied mathematics to a very broad range of

problems ranging from the vibrations of the earth to the formation

of patterns in plants. Two themes that have been threads that draw

together much of this work are the application of computational

mathematics and the analysis of inverse problems. This meeting,

which focuses on computational mathematics and inverse problems

and features speakers who have collaborated with Bob, will attempt to

capture the diversity of his work in these areas.

Venue: ANU Manning Clarke Lecture Theatre 6 and Foyer, ANU

Canberra, ACT, Australia

Registration

There is no registration fee for attendance and everyone with an interest in

mathematical modelling, computation and inverse problems and friends of

Bob are most welcome to attend. However, in order for us to arrange

catering, please register through the website

Faculty Openings in Computer Science and Applied Mathematics

King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) is being

established in Saudi Arabia as an international graduate-level research

university dedicated to inspiring a new age of scientific achievement that

will benefit the region and the world. As an independent and merit-based

institution and one of the best endowed universities in the world, KAUST

intends to become a major new contributor to the global network of

collaborative research. It will enable researchers from around the globe to

work together to solve challenging scientific and technological problems. The

admission of students, the appointment, promotion and retention of faculty and

staff, and all the educational, administrative and other activities of the

University shall be conducted on the basis of equality, without regard to

race, color, religion or gender.

KAUST is located on the Red Sea at Thuwal (80km north of Jeddah). Opening in

September 2009, KAUST welcomes exceptional researchers, faculty and students

from around the world. To be competitive, KAUST will offer very attractive

base salaries and a wide range of benefits. Further information about KAUST

can be found at http://www.kaust.edu.sa/.

KAUST invites applications for faculty position at all ranks (Assistant,

Associate, Full) in Applied Mathematics (with domain applications in the

modeling of biological, physical, engineering, and financial systems) and

Computer Science, including areas such as Computational Mathematics,

High-Performance Scientific Computing, Operations Research, Optimization,

Probability, Statistics, Computer Systems, Software Engineering, Algorithms

and Computing Theory, Artificial Intelligence, Graphics, Databases,

Human-Computer Interaction, Computer Vision and Perception, Robotics, and

Bio-Informatics (this list is not exhaustive). KAUST is also interested in

applicants doing research at the interface of Computer Science and Applied

Mathematics with other science and engineering disciplines. High priority will

be given to the overall originality and promise of the candidate’s work rather

than the candidate’s sub-area of specialization within Applied Mathematics and

Computer Science.

An earned Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Computational

Mathematics, Computational Science and Engineering, Operations Research,

Statistics, or a related field, evidence of the ability to pursue a program of

research, and a strong commitment to graduate teaching are required. A

successful candidate will be expected to teach courses at the graduate level

and to build and lead a team of graduate students in Master’s and Ph.D. research.

Applications should include a curriculum vita, brief statements of research

and teaching interests, and the names of at least 3 references for an

Assistant Professor position, 6 references for an Associate Professor

position, and 9 references for a Full Professor position. Candidates are

requested to ask references to send their letters directly to the search

committee. Applications and letters should be sent via electronic mail to

kaust-search@cs.stanford.edu. The review of applications will begin

immediately, and applicants are strongly encouraged to submit applications as

soon as possible; however, applications will continue to be accepted until

December 2009, or all 10 available positions have been filled.

In 2008 and 2009, as part of an Academic Excellence Alliance agreement between

KAUST and Stanford University, the KAUST faculty search committee consisting

of professors from the Computer Science Department and the Institute of

Computational and Mathematical Engineering at Stanford University, will

evaluate applicants for the faculty positions at KAUST. However, KAUST will

be responsible for all hiring decisions, appointment offers, recruiting, and

explanations of employment benefits. The recruited faculty will be employed by

KAUST, not by Stanford. Faculty members in Applied Mathematics and Computer

Science recruited by KAUST before September 2009 will be hosted at Stanford

University as Visiting Fellows until KAUST opens in September 2009.

Optimization of Oil Field Development

We seek a post-doc for research focusing on the development and application

of new algorithms for oil field optimization. The project will target the

development of procedures for optimizing the location and type of new wells,

determining the optimal well pattern, optimizing the drilling sequence, and

accounting for geological and engineering uncertainty. Current approaches

under study by our group include the use of evolutionary algorithms (e.g.,

genetic algorithms, particle swarm optimization) coupled to large-scale

reservoir flow simulators. Applicants for this position should have research

experience in simulation-based optimization and/or oil reservoir simulation.

The project is funded by the Italian energy company ENI. The work will

entail both algorithm development and application of the algorithms to field

problems defined by ENI. Some travel to Milan will be required, but the

significant majority of the work will be conducted at Stanford. The funding

will start in early 2009 and is anticipated to last for two years.

Interested applicants should send (1) a curriculum vita with a complete list

of publications, (2) names of three references including email addresses,

and (3) copies of relevant papers to:
