Expression of interest
We are recruiting one PhD student to work on inverse problems for partial differential equations.
Inverse problems are
ubiquitous in science and engineering, and appear whenever a physical quantity has to be
reconstructed from indirect
measurements. The range of applications is very wide: medical imaging, detection systems,
geophysics, astrophysics, signal processing, computer vision, general relativity, etc. Whenever
physics plays a crucial
role, inverse problems are modelled by partial differential equations.
We are looking for a candidate with strong mathematical and computational skills to work on
theoretical and algorithmic
aspects at the interface between mathematical and numerical analysis. More precisely, the work
will combine methods of
PDE theory, inverse problems, applied harmonic analysis and machine learning. Candidates who are
familiar with and
interested in one or more of these topics are encouraged to apply.
The three-year PhD salary is commensurate to the cost of living in Genoa. The start of the
position is planned in
Perspective candidates should make an expression of interest before May 30th.
