Funded PhD Student Positions
Funded PhD positions are available within the framework of the Primus Research Program "Scalable and Accurate Numerical Linear Algebra for Next-Generation Hardware", led by Dr. Erin Carson at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics at Charles University. Applications are invited from candidates who have strong background in numerical linear algebra, numerical analysis, parallel computing, or computational/data science application domains. The start date is October 2020, by which time the applicants must hold a Master's degree. Successful candidates must formally enroll in the PhD program at Charles University.
The positions come with a (tax-free) stipend of at least 20000 CZK per month.
Potential PhD topics include, but are not limited to:
