From: Jan Mandel 
Subject: Post-doctoral Research Associate at the University of Colorado at Denver

The Center for Computational Mathematics at the University of Colorado at
Denver has one or more openings for Post-doctoral Research Associates,
funded by an NSF grant on dynamic data driven simulation for wildfire
modeling. This is a joint project with the National Center on Atmospheric
Research, University of Kentucky, Texas A&M University, and Rochester
Institute of Technology. The associate will work with Professors Leo
Franca, Jan Mandel, and Tolya Puhalskii.

The appointments are possible for one or two years. The associate should
have a solid background and a research record in one or more of the
following areas:

- physical modelling by partial differential equations
- discretization techniques
- stochastic processes, control, and estimation
- data analysis, filtering and assimilation

The associate should have a demonstrated ability to create independently
prototype models in Matlab or C, and will be expected to direct the
programming work of one or more graduate students. Ability to work with
legacy numerical codes in Fortran is a plus.

To apply, please send your CV including publications and experience in
software development, and have three letters of recommendation sent to Jan

Review of applications begins immediately and will continue until the
positions are filled.

The University of Colorado at Denver is an equal opportunity employer and
educator committed to excellence through inclusiveness. The Colorado Open
Records Act requires a written request for confidentiality at the time of
application. Applications without a written request for confidentiality
may be required to be disclosed. All applications submitted via e-mail are
subject to Colorado Open Records Act.

From: Jan Mandel 
Subject: Assistantships at the University of Colorado at Denver

The Center for Computational Mathematics at the University of Colorado at
Denver has several open positions for Graduate Research Assistants (GRAs)
in an NSF funded project on wildfire simulation.  The GRAs will join a
dynamic interdisciplinary team working in physical modeling,
discretization of partial differential equations, statistical data
analysis, stochastic modeling, real-time simulation, and high performance

The GRAs will be students in the PhD Program in Applied Mathematics.
Full support (stipend, tuition, fees, books, and health insurance) is
available. Summer internships and visits to other institutions may be
required. Applicants should have Bachelor's or Master's degree in
Mathematics or a relevant Science and Engineering discipline, excellent
analytical abilities, and programming experience.

Interested students should submit an application for admission into the
PhD program (see for requirements
and forms) and contact Jan Mandel  to be
considered for financial support. The email should include a CV and a
description of relevant experience, in particular any software development
and computational modeling projects. Electronic copies of any work of the
applicant (papers, thesis, computer code,...) and of transcripts by email
will be helpful.

Open Position "Full Professor with tenure (C4) for Numerical Simulation"
The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences of the University of
Bonn, Germany, seeks for a Professor for Numerical Simulation at the
rank Full Professor with tenure (C4) at the Institute for Numerical
Simulation. The engagement is regulated by the law of the state
Nordrhein Westfalen §46 HG (NRW). 

Candidates should have the numerical simulation in the area of
geosciences and engineering sciences as their main research subject.
Participation in the SFB 611 "Singular Phenomena and Scaling in
Mathematical Models" is encouraged. 

Candidates must be prepared to lecture in German. The professorship is
responsible for the education in engineering mathematics for the study
program geodesy at the Faculty of Agriculture of the University of Bonn.

Disabled applicants with identical skills and experience will be given
preferential treatment. The University of Bonn would like to establish a
higher quota of female professors. Applications from women are therefore
particularly encouraged. 

Applications should be directed to the Chairman of the Fachgruppe
Mathematik/ Informatik, Prof. Dr. Chr. Strelen, Beringstraße 4, 53115
Bonn, Germany, until 

                           October 10, 2003 

and should include a statement describing the suitability of the
applicant for the announced position, curriculum vitae, copies of
degrees, a list of publications and preprints and reprints of the most
important three papers not older than three years.
