PhD student in computational mathematics, Sweden


At Linköping University we embrace innovative thinking. Constantly challenging ourselves has been our strongest motivator ever since we opened our doors in 1975. We are driven by seeking answers beyond the traditional and across subject boundaries. If you are too, we would like to see you at our university. Together we can find solutions to the challenges of the day.

The Department of Mathematics conducts both teaching and research. The research encompasses a broad spectrum of areas, from pure mathematics to applications in technology, the natural sciences, economics and didactics. Our aim is to create an environment that encourages innovation and is open to new and relevant research areas. 

Hereby advertises a position as PhD student in computational mathematics/numerical analysis formally based at the Division of Computational Mathematics,   Department of Mathematics at Linköping University


The student will be a member of a group that develops computational methods for partial differential equations, see for examples of our activities. Frequent contacts with leading research organisations such as Stanford and Southern Methodist University in USA, University of Cape Town and the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research in South Africa as well as SAAB and the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute in Sweden will be required. Today our research group consists of 4 women and 9 men.

Project: Efficient methods for wave propagation and fluid flow calculations

The goal of the project is to develop new computational mathematics for highly accurate solutions to flow and wave propagation problems. Applications exist in climate modeling, weather prediction, aerodynamics and biofluid mechanics. The exact task will be determined in consultation with the graduate student.


As a PhD student you will primarily devote yourself to your research. As a PhD student you are limited to work with education and administration up to 20 percent of full time.

General information

The PhD program in computational mathematics offer a worldclass education. LiU also offer an attractive work environment and good additional benefits, such as for example subsidized healthcare.
