Post-Doctoral position for 12 months, available immediately Numerical simulations of physical configurations of Bose-Einstein condensates

Context and description :

This study is part of a national (ANR) research program entitled BECASIM Bose-Einstein Con- densates : Advanced SIMulation Deterministic and Stochastic Computational Models, HPC Implementation, Simulation of Experiments. The project gathers 21 mathematicians from 10 laboratories and is aimed at providing a new state-of-the-art numerical methods and high per- formance computing software for the numerical simulation of Bose-Einstein condensates.

In the framework of the BECASIM project, several numerical schemes (splitting, relaxation, Crank-Nicolson) and discretizations (spectral, compact finite difference schemes) for the Gross- Pitaevskii equation were theoretically studied and implemented in new numerical codes. These codes are intended to be distributed as open-source codes for BEC configurations.

More information on the project can be find at http://becasim.math.cnrs.fr/ Objective of the postdoc :

The work will focus on the numerical simulation of physical configurations of Bose-Einstein condensates (BEC). An important part of the work will concern the collaboration with physicists in conducting realistic numerical simulations reproducing experimental or theoretical settings that need high space/time resolutions, e.g. fast rotating BEC, multi-component BEC, spinor BEC, turbulence in BEC, etc. The candidate will closely collaborate with the BCECASIM team, and particularly with the main developers of our numerical codes.

Requirements :

The successful candidate is expected to hold (or about to have) a PhD in the area of computational applied mathematics or physics. Candidates with strong physical background in cold matter physics are strongly encouraged to apply. Programming experience is essential. Experience in parallel programming and in using high-performance computing facilities (HPC) would be an advantage.
