The research at the Division for Scientific Computing has a broad scope, ranging from numerical analysis over software development and high-performance computing to collaborative projects in Computational Science and Engineering, and industrial applications. The research is organized in two research programs (Computational Science and Engineering and Numerical Analysis) with a common graduate (PhD) education program in Scientific Computing. The Division has an extensive international and national research network and co-leads the Uppsala-Lund-Umeå e-Science consortium eSSENCE, which is a new major Strategic Research Area effort funded by the Swedish Ministry of Education. The Division also hosts the Director for the UppsalaCenter for Interdisciplinary Mathematics and participates in the programming for multicore architecturesCenter of Excellence UPMARC funded by the Swedish Research Council.
A PhD position in Scientific Computing requires a Master of Science in Computational Mathematics, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or equivalent in a field which is relevant for the topic of the PhD thesis. The position is for a maximum of four years and includes departmental duties at a level of at most 20% (typically teaching). The salary amounts currently to about 24,200 SEK per month in the first year.
