It with great sadness that I report the passing of Jaroslav (Jerry)

Kautsky on 10 February 2021 in Adelaide, South Australia. Jerry made

great contributions to numerical linear algebra, orthogonal

polynomials and problems associated with image registration and blur

invariants.

He will be greatly missed.

POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP: Computational Methods in Optimization

Our Thematic Project announces two-year pos-doctoral fellowship

positions to work either at the Institute of Mathematics, Statistics

and Scientific Computing, IMECC (https://www.ime.unicamp.br/en) of The

University of Campinas, Unicamp (www.unicamp.br/index.php/english),

Campinas, SP, Brazil, or at the Institute of Mathematics ans

Statistics, IME (https://www.ime.usp.br/en) of the University of Sao

Paulo, USP (https://www5.usp.br/#english), Sao Paulo, SP, Brazil. The

The Centre for Analysis, Scientific Computing and Applications (CASA)

at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) is inviting

applications for postdoctoral researcher positions within the project

"DIMENSION", an inter-disciplinary project funded by the ERC and by

TU/e.

We are a multi-disciplinary, international research team developing

data- driven computational methods to accelerate the simulation,

optimisation and inverse analysis of systems governed by parametrized

partial differential equations (PDEs). This particular project deals

with the development of dimension reduction methods to accelerate the

assimilation of data into models and the optimal design of

experiments, particularly for multi-scale materials. Candidates must

therefore have a strong background and interest in working at the

interface of numerical analysis, data science, and computational

engineering. Prior experience in programming numerical methods is

expected. The initial appointment will be for one year with the

possibility of extension, depending on performance.

Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae,

transcript(s) of records, lists of publications and presentations, the

contact information of at least two references, and a one-page

statement describing the applicant's current research work &

interests. Interested candidates should apply by sending all relevant

documents in a single PDF file. Please send complete applications and

address any inquiries to Prof. Karen Veroy- Grepl at . Applications

submitted by 31 March 2021 will receive full consideration, but the

search will remain open until the position is filled.
