Post-Doctoral Positions at Roma "La Sapienza"

The Team of the European Community TMR Network on "Viscosity solutions and their applications" (*) based at the Dipartimento di Matematica, Università di Roma "La Sapienza" offers one (1) one-semester post-doctoral positions for the academic year 2001/2002. Ph.D. students with a research curriculum of at least two years are also welcome to apply. Those positions are renewable once. Shorter appointments may also be considered.
Eligible candidates should start working in Rome by October 1st, 2001.

The amount of the fellowship will be determined according to standard European Community rates, the minimum amount being about 2000 ECU per month.

The local TMR team includes I. Capuzzo Dolcetta, M. Falcone, A. Siconolfi, S. Finzi Vita, I. Birindelli, P. Loreti, R. Ferretti, G. Mascari and some graduate and PhD students.
The main research topics of the team are: theoretical and numerical aspects of the theory of viscosity solutions, deterministic and stochastic optimal control theory, numerical methods for PDEs, phase transition, differential games, image processing.
The Dipartimento di Matematica has about 130 members including experts in many fields connected to the TMR netkwork activity, e.g. partial differential equations and applications, calculus of variations, stochastic systems, mathematical physics and mathematical finance.
The Dipartimento di Matematica offers good working conditions, access to the network and to several computing facilities (SUN Workstations, Silicon Graphics Indigo 2 plus the parallel machines located at the CASPUR Consortium).

Young candidates whose research falls in the areas of nonlinear partial differential equations, control theory, numerical analysis and/or scientific computing are encouraged to apply.
Priority will be given to applicants with previous experience in the field of viscosity solutions and/or its applications.

Candidates must be nationals of a European Union Member State other than Italy or a State associated with the TMR Program (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Israel) and must not be over 35 years of age at the time the appointment will start (an allowance to this age limit may be made for military service and child-care).

Applicants must submit a curriculum vitae with a list of publications, a statement of current research interests, a research proposal and two letters of recommendation.
Deadline for the submission of the application is August 30th, 2001.
The outcome of the selection will be communicated to the candidates by September 10th, 2001.
Late applications may also be considered if funding is still available, or considered for the next academic year.

Applications should be sent to:
