These posts provide an exciting opportunity to work with Professor Nick Higham in the Numerical Linear Algebra Group (https://nla-group.org) at the University of Manchester on developing and analyzing numerical linear algebra algorithms for current and future high-performance computers.
Topics for investigation include linear equations, linear least squares problems, eigenvalue problems, the singular value decomposition, correlation matrix problems, and matrix function evaluation. This work will exploit multiprecision arithmetic (particularly the fast half precisions available on some recent and forthcoming processors) and techniques such as acceleration and randomization. It will involve using rounding error analysis, statistical analysis, and numerical experiments to obtain new understanding of algorithm accuracy and efficiency.
The School is committed to promoting equality and diversity, including the Athena SWAN charter for promoting women’s careers in STEMM subjects (science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine) in higher education. The School holds a Bronze Award for their commitment to the representation of women in the workplace and we particularly welcome applications from women for this post. Appointment will always be made on merit. For further information, please visit:
