School of Mathematics and Statistics, University of St Andrews
Research Fellow - SK7773
£29,853 - £35,646 per annum Start: 1 May 2011 Fixed Term: 2 years

A 2 year post funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences
Research Council, starting 1 May 2011 or as soon as possible
thereafter, is available to work with Drs Jean Reinaud and Richard
Scott and Professor David Dritschel.  The project will investigate the
stability and interactions of vortices, of the type commonly observed
in the atmosphere and oceans.  In particular, the project will examine
the effects of nonlinear fluid motions beyond the traditional
`quasi-geostrophic' approximation.  The project will involve a
combination of rigorous mathematical analysis and state-of-the-art
computational techniques.  Candidates must have a PhD in Applied
Mathematics or a related subject area by the project start date,
together with a strong background in both geophysical fluid dynamics
and numerical computation (a good knowledge of FORTRAN is required).

The project will involve international collaboration with groups in
Australia, Germany and Spain, and some travel is expected.  Informal
enquiries may be addressed to Drs Jean Reinaud
(jean@mcs.st-and.ac.uk), Richard Scott (rks@mcs.st-and.ac.uk), or
Professor David Dritschel (dgd@mcs.st-and.ac.uk).
