Dear friends and colleagues

please feel free to forward the advert below for a 30 months post doc
position to interested/suitable candidates. Feel free to get in touch if
you have questions/need further information.

Note: There are no restrictions with respect to nationality.

With best wishes,

Gregor Tanner

Professor of Applied Mathematics

School of Mathematical Sciences
University of Nottingham
University Park, Nottingham NG7 2RD
+44 (0)115 9513842
gregor.tanner AT

Research Associate/Fellow
Mathematical Sciences
Location: University Park
Salary: £25,769 to £33,574 per annum, depending on skills and
experience (minimum £28,982 per annum with relevant PhD)
Closing Date: Tuesday 04 October 2016
Reference: SCI260716

Applications are invited for the above post to work with Profs Gregor
Tanner and Dave Thomas and Drs Stephen Creagh and Gabriele Gradoni on an
ONR-Global - funded project entitled “Propagating electromagnetic signals
through complex built-up structures – Resilience of electronic components
in the presence of EM noise and environmental uncertainty”. This project
is about handling noisy, interference dominated electromagnetic wave fields
in a complex environment by developing an efficient numerical methods
combining statistical approaches with numerically exact tools and wave
asymptotic concepts.

This project brings together two novel and complementary methods, namely
Dynamical Energy Analysis – DEA, developed in Nottingham and the Random
Coupling Model – RCM, pioneered at the University of Maryland (UMD).
Combining these methods promises a step-change in the capability of EM
field simulations in the mid (microwave) to high (mmWave) frequency range.
The central aim of the project is to develop an efficient numerical toolbox
for short wavelength EM-fields inside three-dimensional (multiply connected
cavity) structures determining statistical fluctuations as well as mean
field intensities. It will make it possible to assess average values and
the level of fluctuation of statistically inhomogeneous fields at different
points within the structure. The research will be conducted in close
collaborations with Prof. Edward Ott, Prof. Thomas Antonsen, and Prof.
Steven Anlage, at UMD.

The successful applicant will specialise in the solution of electromagnetic
problems, high frequency asymptotics of wave equations, and numerical
software development.

Candidates must hold or be near completion of a PhD, or equivalent, in a
relevant branch of applied mathematics, theoretical physics or electrical
engineering. A good knowledge of wave chaos and wave modelling is
essential. In addition, a background in more than one of the following
areas is highly desirable: numerical solutions of PDEs, programming,
quantum chaos, Random Matrix Theory, and electromagnetic theory. Candidates
should be confident, organised, have good communication skills and enjoy
working as part of a team as well as independently. The successful
candidates will be expected to contribute to the publication of scientific
papers, and to their dissemination at relevant conferences; the candidate
is expected to undertake frequent visits to our partners at UMD. The
quality and quantity of their previous research outputs should be
commensurate with their level of experience.

In recognition of its commitment to promoting women in science, The
University of Nottingham is one of a small number of universities to hold a
Silver Athena SWAN Award.

This full-time position is available from 1 October 2016 or soon thereafter
and will be offered on a fixed-term contract for a period of 2 years 6
