Senior NA Position – STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory

We have an opening for a senior researcher to join the Numerical Analysis Group at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, near Oxford, England. The Group’s main focus is on topics relating to large-scale numerical linear algebra and optimization.

The position will involve undertaking novel independent and collaborative scientific research at an international level in an area of computational numerical analysis that complements and contributes to the work of the Group, and is in line with the Group’s current EPSRC research grant “Least Squares: Fit for the Future”. The role will also contribute to developing, supporting and maintaining software within one or more of the Group’s key software projects (notably HSL, SPRAL and GALAHAD).

Further responsibilities will include developing national and international research collaborations, working with colleagues on the development and expansion of projects involving STFC scientific facilities (notably the ISIS pulsed neutron and muon source, Diamond Light Source and RAL Space), and the writing of grant applications to secure future funding for numerical analysis research and software development projects.
