Subject: Quantum Software, USA, Nov 2021

The International Workshop on Quantum Computing Software is an
official workshop of SC21 scheduled Monday, 15 November, 2021 from 9am
5:30 pm CST.  This is the second year the workshop is offered through
Supercomputing (SC).

Quantum computing is emerging as a remarkable technology that promises
to achieve major scientific breakthroughs. This includes solving
complex problems whose solution lies well beyond contemporary and even
future supercomputers based on conventional technologies. Interacting
with these quantum computers, including noisy-intermediate scale
quantum devices, for both basic and applied research will require a
unique collection of software tools and techniques.

The purpose of this workshop is to explore the innovative software
needed to make quantum computing practical and accessible. The
workshop will focus heavily on the tools and software for quantum
computing with particular emphasis on realized implementations.

Important Dates:
Paper-Submission Deadline: Friday, August 27, 2021
Author Notification: Friday, October 8, 2021
Workshop: Monday, November 15, 2021

Subject: Assistant Professor Position, CSE, Georgia Tech

The School of Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) at the
Georgia Institute of Technology invites applications for the Edenfield
Early Career Professorship at the Assistant Professor level
(tenure-track).  CSE focuses on foundational research of an
interdisciplinary nature that enables advances in science,
engineering, medical, and social domains. Applicants are expected to
develop and sustain a research program in one or more of our core
areas: high-performance computing, scientific and numerical computing,
modeling and simulation, discrete algorithms, and large-scale data
analytics (including machine learning and artificial intelligence).

All areas of research will be considered, especially: scientific
artificial intelligence (AI methods unique to scientific computing),
urban computing (enabling effective design and operation of cities and
urban communities), application-driven post-Moore's law computing, and
data science for fighting disease. Applicants must have an outstanding
record of research and a commitment to teaching.

Applicants are expected to engage in substantive research with
collaborators in other disciplines. For example, current faculty have
domain expertise and/or collaborations in computational chemistry;
earth sciences; biomedical and health sciences; urban systems and
smart cities; social good and sustainable development; materials and
manufacturing; and others.

Applications should be submitted online through:

For full consideration, applications are due by September 15, 2021.

Subject: Postdoc Position, Numerical Computing, Loughborough Univ

A postdoctoral research associate position is available in the
Department of Mathematical Sciences of Loughborough University. The
position is funded by the EPSRC (project EP/V027603/1) to develop a
novel computational framework that combines domain decomposition and
proper generalised decomposition to support virtual design.

Subject: Postdoc Position, Viscoelastic Flows, NJIT

A short-term postdoc position is available at the New Jersey Institute
of Technology Department of Mathematical Science to conduct a
numerical study of two-phase viscoelastic flows using an in-house
volume-of-fluid code. The ability to program in C is desired. Given
the short-term nature of the appointment, US residency is highly
preferred. Prior experience in multiphase flow simulations (preferably
viscoelastic flows) is expected. Interested candidates are encouraged
to contact [log in to unmask] If the external grant proposals
are funded, the position may be extended beyond 6 months, but it is
not guaranteed. The start date is flexible.

Subject: PhD Position, NA of Geophysical Models, Univ of Exeter

Applications are open for a 4yr funded PhD project at the University
of Exeter. Numerical analysis of compatible finite element schemes for
rotating stratified flows.  This EPSRC project will involve a
combination of numerical analysis and fluid dynamics to design and
analyse a next-to-lowest order compatible finite element model for the
3D compressible Euler equations in spherical geometry using the
Firedrake finite element library.  The use of the Firedrake library
greatly simplifies the implementation of finite element algorithms,
allowing flexible and rapid investigation of a range of ideas.

The types of challenges that could be explored in this project
include: 1) Design and analysis of efficient, scalable solvers for the
Helmholtz equation that arises in the computation of the pressure
field.  2) Design and analysis of conservative and, where necessary,
positivity- preserving advection schemes.  The challenge here is that
different fields live in different finite element function spaces,
which require different strategies to achieve stability and
conservation 3) Development and investigation of innovative
timestepping algorithms for the full nonlinear system.  This could
involve numerical analysis of operator splitting methods or
predictor-corrector type schemes that achieve efficiency through
time-parallelism 4) Design and analyse robust algorithms that can be
applied to deformed grids, such as vertically stretched grids, as used
in the Met Office Unified Model, and the terrain following grids
required when orography is introduced.  The convergence of the
algorithm depends on the regularity of the mapping from the domain to
the reference element.  The finite element function spaces required in
this project have a tensor product structure which separates the
horizontal and vertical discretisations and this will pose a challenge
for designing algorithms that are robust when combined with the
smoothing operators commonly applied to terrain following grids.
