Postdoctoral Stipend:Numerical Methods for Vegetation Models at Umea University, 2011, Sweden
To qualify for the stipend, you should have a PhD degree in computational mathematics or a quantitative science related to the project, preferably not older than three years.
-Experience of programming in C++, parallel computing, or mathematical ecology will be an advantage, but is not required.
-Proficiency in written and spoken English is essential.
-Since we strive for a more equal gender distribution within our department, we especially encourage female applicants.
We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow to take on the numerical and computational challenges arising in an international research collaboration that aims to develop an evolutionary ecology vegetation model capable of predicting vegetation structures favored under different environmental conditions.
The model is physiologically structured and represented mathematically by a non-local partial differential equation, i.e., by a PDE in which coefficients depend on non-local properties of the solution. A particularly relevant example is the light availability at a given height above ground level.
