**Subject: Erasmus Mundus Master Programme in CSE**

"Computer Simulation for Science and Engineering" (COSSE) is a

new Erasmus Mundus Master's programme in the field of

Computational Science and Engineering jointly offered by four

European universities:

- KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden

- Technical University of Berlin, Germany

- Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands

- Friedrich-Alexander-University of Erlangen, Germany.

Erasmus Mundus is an EU programme supporting university

cooperation at the master and doctoral levels. It aims to provide

top-quality European education to attract the best students from

all over the world. The programmes are offered by a group of

partner universities and include studies in at least two European

countries. COSSE is generously supported by the European Union

including a competitive stipend programme.

The deadline for application for the academic year 2011/12 is

November 30, 2010.

For up-to-date and more detailed information, please refer to

**Subject: New Book, Finite Elements**

Finite elements - An Introduction to the Method and Error

Estimation

Ivo Babuska, John R. Whiteman and Theofanis Strouboulis

Oxford University Press; ISBN 978-0-19-850670-6

This book presents the main theoretical ideas of the finite

element method and the analysis of its errors in a way that is

accessible to students, and which demonstrates the

interrelationship between the theory and numbers produced in

practical computations. The approach is to show how the numbers

demonstrate the theory and also how the theory contributes to the

understanding of the numbers. This approach, both dual and

interacting, is a feature that we believe makes this book unique.

Recent advances in finite element error estimation mean that it

is now possible to consider the reliability of the methods, and

the assessment of reliability in major computations. This is

also discussed in the book and is a timely feature.

January 2011 or soon after. These positions require

US-citizenship. These positions are funded through a grant from

ONR and provide a very competitive salary and compensation. The

initial appointments are for one year with possibility of

renewal. The work involves the numerical investigation of

electromagnetic wave propagation at very high frequencies in

two/three dimensions. The new postdocs will join a very active

research group and work with Professor Sritharan. This group

includes 4 senior members, two other postdocs and one visiting

member.

Preference will be given to candidates whose research areas lie

within computational mathematics, however, applications from all

areas of applied and computational mathematics and mechanics are

welcomed.

Applications must include a cover letter, curriculum vitae with a

list of publications, and names and contact points for three

individuals who can furnish letters of recommendation. Letters of

recommendations will be requested for a smaller pool of

applicants at a later time. Applications will be reviewed as they

are received.

Please submit all application materials in one .pdf file to

mohsen.tadi@ucdenver.edu or sssritha@nps.edu

**Subject: Postdoc Position in Parallel Comp at CIMNE-UPC, Spain**

Postdoc position in parallel solvers for sparse saddle-point

systems at CIMNE/UPC, Barcelona (Spain)

The International Center for Numerical Methods in

Engineering (CIMNE) at the Universitat Politècnica de

Catalunya (UPC) is seeking a postdoctoral candidate in parallel

sparse linear algebra for saddle-point type linear systems,

arising from the finite element approximation of Navier-Stokes,

Maxwell and Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) problems.

The candidate will belong to the newly created Computational

Mathematics and Physics department. The creation of this group is

funded by the Starting Grant COMFUS, recently awarded to

Dr. Santiago Badia by the European Research Council (ERC). COMFUS

is a five-year project that aims to advance in the field of

numerical methods for fusion reactors technology. It involves the

numerical approximation of MHD, electromagnetics and plasma

physics.

We are looking for excellent candidates holding a PhD in Computer

Science, Applied Mathematics or Computational Mechanics/Physics.

Strong background on sparse linear algebra, parallel computing

and domain decomposition techniques will be highly appreciated.

The position will remain opened till filled, but it is

recommended to apply before the end of January 2011. The

appointment can be extended to five years, and the salary,
