Duties and Responsibilities

Applications are invited for a full-time Research Fellow to work with Dr David Hewett on the EPSRC-funded project 'Integral equations on fractal domains: analysis and computation' (EP/S01375X/1). The project focuses on the numerical analysis of integral equation methods for the solution of PDEs in domains with fractal boundaries, particularly those arising in acoustic and electromagnetic wave propagation.

The responsibilities of the post will include: carrying out vigorous, high-level mathematical research; interacting with Dr Hewett, his collaborator and industrial partners; submitting publications regularly in refereed journals; and participating in local seminars and in national and international conferences.

This post is funded for 2 years in the first instance, and is available from 1 August 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.
