Postdoctoral Research Position at Los Alamos National Laboratory

Computer and Computational Sciences Division, Modeling, Algorithms,
and Informatics Group (CCS-3)
Theoretical Division, Plasma Theory Group (T-15)

The CCS-3 Solvers Team, in collaboration with the Plasma Theory Group,
invites highly motivated Ph.D. students in computational science to
apply for a postdoctoral research position in Los Alamos, NM.  The CCS-3
Solvers Team specializes in efficient solution of nonlinear,
time-dependent problems using adaptive mesh refinement.  Areas of
interest include multilevel methods, error estimation for finite volume
discretizations, and adaptive methods for magnetohydrodynamics.
Appointments have a duration of two years, with possibility of extension
to a third year.

Applicants must have or soon complete a Ph.D. (or equivalent experience)
in Mathematics, Computer Science, Computational Science, or a related
scientific discipline, with a strong emphasis in computation. 
Applicants should have experience in numerical analysis, particularly
related to the numerical solution of partial differential equations in
general.  Interest and experience in large-scale high-performance
computing, scientific software development, and a proven ability to work
in a collaborative research environment are highly desirable.  Knowledge
of or willingness to learn multiple programming and scripting languages
(C++, C, Fortran 90, perl, python) is preferred.

Applications will be accepted through May 1, 2005, or until the position
is filled.  Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, a statement of
research interests, and names of three references to

Los Alamos National Laboratory is a multi-disciplinary, multi-program
research laboratory employing over 8,000 technical professionals
conducting basic and applied research with a primary mission to reduce
global nuclear danger.  The laboratory is located at an elevation of
7200 feet in the beautiful mountains of northern New Mexico, where we
enjoy a temperate climate and easy access to a wide variety of
recreational and cultural opportunities.

Subject: PDE-Based Image Processing and Related

An international conference on "PDE-Based Image Processing and Related
Inverse Problems", August 8-12, 2005 in Oslo, Norway.

The purpose of this conference is to have international experts to come to 
Oslo and exchange new ideas and results in this field. The conference will 
focus on, but will not be limited to the following topics for image analysis 
and processing:

 * Noise analysis and removal
 * Image inpaiting
 * Image segmentation
 * 3D image analysis including shading, motion, shape and edge detection
 * Analysis and processing of MR images and brain mapping
 * Diffusion-tensor image analysis
 * Simulation and image techniques for ECG and other medical techniques
 * Image processing and data mining for Internet communication and
   information technology.

Inverse problems for partial differential equations have large areas
of applications. One widely studied application is for oil reservoir
simulations. Although image analysis and PDE inverse problems seem to
be unrelated at a first glance, there are many techniques used in one
of these two areas that are useful for the other. For example, many of
the regularization techniques and segmentation ideas used for image
processing have found interesting applications in inverse problems
within oil reservoir modeling. We shall use this conference to
highlight some of the recent efforts in merging some of the techniques
for these two research areas.

Invited Speakers:

Raymond Chan, Chinese University of Hong Kong
Tony F. Chan, University of California at Los Angeles
Stanley Osher, University of California at Los Angeles
Guillermo Sapiro, University of Minnesota
Joachim Weickert, Saarland University


No fee will be charged for participating in the conference. However,
registration is needed to plan the scale for the conference. The total
number of participants will be limited.
