As such, the Postdoctoral Associate will have opportunities to explore and conduct numerical experiments, using such a superb HPC infrastructure. S/he should be motivated and eager to communicate results at scientific meetings and publish in peer-reviewed journals.
The initial appointment for this position is 1 year, and can be extended to the second year upon successful performance and funding availability. Salary commensurates with experience. The expected start date is August 1, 2020, but is negotiable. The candidate will be jointly supervised by Dr. Chanh Kieu (Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences) and Dr. Wai-Tong Louis Fan (Department of Mathematics).
To receive full consideration, applications and required materials (CV, research statement and names of three referees) should be received by April 30, 2020, however, the review will continue until position is filled. Candidates must apply at https://indiana.peopleadmin.com/hr/postings/9387.
