One Day Seminar on Computational Mathematics and Inverse Problems
23 January 2009
Celebrating Bob Anderssen's 70th birthday

Bob Anderssen has applied mathematics to a very broad range of
problems ranging from the vibrations of the earth to the formation
of patterns in plants. Two themes that have been threads that draw
together much of this work are the application of computational
mathematics and the analysis of inverse problems. This meeting,
which focuses on computational mathematics and inverse problems
and features speakers who have collaborated with Bob, will attempt to
capture the diversity of his work in these areas.

Venue: ANU Manning Clarke Lecture Theatre 6 and Foyer, ANU
Canberra, ACT, Australia

Organising committee
Frank de Hoog, CSIRO
Markus Hegland, Australian National University

There is no registration fee for attendance and everyone with an interest in

established in Saudi Arabia as an international graduate-level research
university dedicated to inspiring a new age of scientific achievement that
will benefit the region and the world. As an independent and merit-based
institution and one of the best endowed universities in the world, KAUST
intends to become a major new contributor to the global network of
collaborative research. It will enable researchers from around the globe to
work together to solve challenging scientific and technological problems. The
admission of students, the appointment, promotion and retention of faculty and
staff, and all the educational, administrative and other activities of the
University shall be conducted on the basis of equality, without regard to
race, color, religion or gender.

KAUST is located on the Red Sea at Thuwal (80km north of Jeddah). Opening in
September 2009, KAUST welcomes exceptional researchers, faculty and students
from around the world. To be competitive, KAUST will offer very attractive
base salaries and a wide range of benefits. Further information about KAUST
can be found at

KAUST invites applications for faculty position at all ranks (Assistant,
Associate, Full) in Applied Mathematics (with domain applications in the
modeling of biological, physical, engineering, and financial systems) and
Computer Science, including areas such as Computational Mathematics,
High-Performance Scientific Computing, Operations Research, Optimization,
Probability, Statistics, Computer Systems, Software Engineering, Algorithms
and Computing Theory, Artificial Intelligence, Graphics, Databases,
Human-Computer Interaction, Computer Vision and Perception, Robotics, and
Bio-Informatics (this list is not exhaustive). KAUST is also interested in
applicants doing research at the interface of Computer Science and Applied
Mathematics with other science and engineering disciplines. High priority will
be given to the overall originality and promise of the candidate’s work rather
than the candidate’s sub-area of specialization within Applied Mathematics and
Computer Science.

An earned Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Computational
Mathematics, Computational Science and Engineering, Operations Research,
Statistics, or a related field, evidence of the ability to pursue a program of
research, and a strong commitment to graduate teaching are required. A
successful candidate will be expected to teach courses at the graduate level
and to build and lead a team of graduate students in Master’s and Ph.D. research.

Applications should include a curriculum vita, brief statements of research
and teaching interests, and the names of at least 3 references for an
Assistant Professor position, 6 references for an Associate Professor
position, and 9 references for a Full Professor position. Candidates are
requested to ask references to send their letters directly to the search
committee. Applications and letters should be sent via electronic mail to The review of applications will begin
immediately, and applicants are strongly encouraged to submit applications as
soon as possible; however, applications will continue to be accepted until
December 2009, or all 10 available positions have been filled.

In 2008 and 2009, as part of an Academic Excellence Alliance agreement between
KAUST and Stanford University, the KAUST faculty search committee consisting
of professors from the Computer Science Department and the Institute of
Computational and Mathematical Engineering at Stanford University, will
evaluate applicants for the faculty positions at KAUST. However, KAUST will
be responsible for all hiring decisions, appointment offers, recruiting, and
explanations of employment benefits. The recruited faculty will be employed by
KAUST, not by Stanford. Faculty members in Applied Mathematics and Computer
Science recruited by KAUST before September 2009 will be hosted at Stanford
University as Visiting Fellows until KAUST opens in September 2009.

Subject: Post-doc Position in Stanford, Optimization of Oil Field Development

Post-doc Position in Department of Energy Resources Engineering
Stanford University

Optimization of Oil Field Development

We seek a post-doc for research focusing on the development and application
of new algorithms for oil field optimization. The project will target the
development of procedures for optimizing the location and type of new wells,
determining the optimal well pattern, optimizing the drilling sequence, and
accounting for geological and engineering uncertainty. Current approaches
under study by our group include the use of evolutionary algorithms (e.g.,
genetic algorithms, particle swarm optimization) coupled to large-scale
reservoir flow simulators. Applicants for this position should have research
experience in simulation-based optimization and/or oil reservoir simulation.

The project is funded by the Italian energy company ENI. The work will
entail both algorithm development and application of the algorithms to field
problems defined by ENI. Some travel to Milan will be required, but the
significant majority of the work will be conducted at Stanford. The funding
will start in early 2009 and is anticipated to last for two years.

Interested applicants should send (1) a curriculum vita with a complete list
of publications, (2) names of three references including email addresses,
and (3) copies of relevant papers to:

Dr. David Echeverria Ciaurri
Department of Energy Resources Engineering, Stanford University

This search will proceed until a suitable candidate is selected. Please see for information on the Department
of Energy Resources Engineering at Stanford.

Stanford University has a strong institutional commitment to the principle
of diversity. In that spirit, we particularly encourage applications from
women, members of ethnic minorities, and individuals with disabilities.
