The University of Gothenburg tackles society’s challenges with diverse knowledge. 53 500 students and 6 500 employees make the university a large and inspiring place to work and study. Strong research and attractive study programmes attract scientists and students from around the world. With new knowledge and new perspectives, the University contributes to a better future.

The announced PhD position, which is located at the Division of Applied Mathematics and Statistics, is supervised by Professor Larisa Beilina.

Job assignments The work will be performed in a dynamic research environment at the interface between mathematics and computational electromagnetics. Mathematical analysis and computational experiments will be closely integrated as the major tools in developing an adaptive finite element method for solving the time-dependent Maxwell equations.

The project will offer you training in a wide range of front-line computational methods. This PhD program will prepare you for a range of career opportunities in academia as well as in private and public sectors. Postgraduate education consists of four years of full-time studies and leads to a PhD degree.

The total period of employment may not exceed the equivalent of four years of full-time postgraduate education and may be extended after institutional service, e.g., teaching, by a maximum of 20% in accordance with HF 5, section 5, section 7, doctoral student employment.

Specific subject description The aim of the project is to find numerical solutions of the coefficient inverse problem (CIP) for Maxwell’s equations. The theoretical task is to develop and analyse adaptive finite element method for CIP. The methodology is then applied to measurements of an electrical field, for example to microwave medical imaging. A more detailed description can be found on
