PH.D. STUDENTS

Two Ph.D. positions are available within the framework of the Primus Research Programme: "A Lanczos-like Method for the Time-Ordered Exponential" at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University, Prague.


Offer

We offer two Ph.D. positions for four years at the Department of Numerical Mathematics, Charles University, Prague, starting from Spring 2021. The department offers an international environment at one of the top universities in the Czech Republic, and the oldest university in Central Europe. The students will also have the opportunity to work with international external collaborators from France (Sorbonne-University / CNRS, and Université du Littoral Côte D'Opale), Italy (University of Padova), and the UK (University of Edinburgh). 

The four years of Ph.D. studies will be done under the supervision of Dr. Stefano Pozza (PI of the project). At the end of the project (December 2023) the students will continue and conclude their studies and work in the same Department.


The grant amount is 25.000 CZK/month for the duration of the project (from the start date of the Ph.D. until December 2023). The grant amount amply covers the cost-of-living in the Czech Republic. A standard amount of 20.000 CZK/month will be granted for the remaining duration of the studies.


Profile of the candidates

The applicants must hold a Master's degree by the start date of Spring 2021 (to be announced) and should have a strong interest in numerical linear algebra and numerical analysis. Knowledge of Matlab or other programming languages is necessary. Applicants will have to prove their English language level by passing an exam (it is possible to waive the examination under some conditions, see https://www.mff.cuni.cz/en/admissions/admission-procedure-in-phd-programmes/2020-2021).
