Graduate/Undergraduate students:

Talented graduate students and undergraduate students interested in numerical methods for physics based simulation are always welcome.

You can get in touch with me via e-mail or office hours. Please send/bring (i) an up-to-date CV, (ii) a transcript highlighting your background in numerical analysis, algorithms, and physics and (iii) a brief description of your research interest, and how it may connect to my current research directions. For undergraduate students, please make sure that you have already taken MATH128A, MATH128B or equivalent classes.

Currently I do not have internship positions available.

Postdoctoral scholars:

One postdoctoral scholar position is available at the Department of Mathematics at University of California, Berkeley. The candidate is expected to have a PhD degree in applied and/or computational mathematics, with strong background in at least one of the following areas: high dimensional problems, quantum algorithms, multiscale methods, machine learning for scientific computing. Candidates with physics / chemistry / materials science backgrounds but have extensive experience in terms of method developments are also welcome. The salary is competitive. The position is available starting from 7/1/2019, but there is flexibility in the starting date.   

The application package should contain a updated CV, a list of publications, a research statement and a list of three references (names and contact information only). The candidate should send the application package by email containing "Postdoc position" in the subject.
