Subject: Postdoc Position, Computational Science, KTH

This is a two year postdoc position at the Division of Computational
Science and Technology in the research group of Professor Johan
Hoffman. The research project concerns the mathematical development
and software implementation of a finite element method for high
performance computing simulations of piezoelectric material, as part
of the new GENEX EU project which aims to develop a unique
multi-disciplinary digital twin enabling data management across the
entire aircraft lifecycle for the next generation of aircraft
composite structures. Lighter composite aircraft structures and the
adoption of new, highly efficient, flexible, and sustainable
manufacturing procedures are major priorities to achieve the EU
environmental goals by 2050. The position combines numerical analysis
with scientific programming in a collaborative environment, which
requires both independence and collaborative abilities, as well as
strong communication skills. Apart from the GENEX project, the

Subject: PhD Position, Optimization for HiGHS, Univ of Edinburgh

The HiGHS team is inviting applications for a fully funded 4-year PhD
position in the School of Mathematics at the University of
Edinburgh. Strong applicants who can start by 1 March 2023,
particularly if they are UK for fees, will be offered an annual
stipend of up to 32k GBP.

The project will develop a new interior point solver for HiGHS and,
although of general applicability, the solver will be developed in the
context of solving energy system planning problems. The work will be
carried out in collaboration with Electricite de France (EDF), the
open-source Python for Power System Analysis (PyPSA) project, and
other sources of industrial and academic energy system planning

By joining the team producing HiGHS, the world's best open-source
linear optimization software, the successful student will have the
opportunity to demonstrate their skills at the cutting edge of
large-scale optimization, and achieve real and lasting impact.
Open-source energy system modelling is the only option for many
stakeholders, such as non-governmental organizations, early- stage
companies, and government ministries in lower income
countries. Although HiGHS can solve planning problems that are
intractable with any other open-source software, for many problems
there is still a significant gap between the performance of HiGHS and
that of the best commercial solvers. The need to close this gap has
attracted a $420k donation to HiGHS. This position will also be
supported by 35k GBP of funding from the Fondation Mathematique
Jacques Hadamard.
