Postdoctoral Fellowship in Computational Mechanics
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship attached to the South African Research Chair in Computational Mechanics.
Conditions of award: Eligible applicants must hold a PhD in computational mechanics or a related area. The PhD degree must have been granted within the last five years, or have been submitted for examination. In the latter case evidence to this effect must be provided.
Applicants may not previously have held any permanent academic or professional posts.
Preference will be given to candidates with experience in the area of operator-splitting methods for coupled problems arising in mechanics and mathematical physics. The successful candidate is expected to have relevant experience in computational implementation of these methods, as well as in the mathematical study of their convergence properties.
The successful candidate will be encouraged to pursue his or her own self-initiated research during the tenure of the fellowship under the supervision of Professor BD Reddy, and will be expected to register as a PDRF at UCT as soon as is practically possible, and by no later than 1 June 2017..
All registered postdoctoral fellows are required to comply with the University’s approved policies, procedures and practices for the postdoctoral sector.
Value and tenure: The fellowship award is valued at R235 000 per annum and does not include any benefits. The Fellowship is renewable for a second year, contingent on satisfactory progress in achieving the research goals, and subject to the availability of funds. The fellowship complies with the conditions required by the SARS and is exempt from taxation.
Application procedure: Qualified candidates are required to provide the following:
· a letter of application expressing research interests and expertise;
· certified copies of all academic transcripts;
· a full cv, including details of publications; and
· names and addresses of two academic referees with whom the applicant has worked.
Applications must be submitted electronically to Miss Natalie Bent, CERECAM, email firstname.lastname@example.org
by no later than 20 March 2017.
