Post-doctoral positions in Barcelona

The Industrial Mathematics Research Group at the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica in Barcelona is seeking Post-doctoral researchers to join the project Environmental applications of diffusion with a moving boundary. The project focus is on the analysis and solution of advection-diffusion systems to model contaminant removal, with applications such as carbon/greenhouse gas capture or remediation of drinking water, and heat flow in green roofs. The work will be in collaboration with experimental partners in both Spain and South Africa.

The first position is funded by a Spanish Science Ministry grant, the deadline for applications is January 15th, 2022, with an expected start date around March/April 2022 (according to availability) and a duration of 24 months.

The second position comes through the CRM’s funding as a “María de Maeztu Unit of Excellence”, in total the centre has 4 junior and 5 senior grants with a duration of 24 months.

· Developing and analysing mathematical models for contaminant removal and heat flow.

· Developing analytical and numerical solutions.

· Controlling group webpage/social media.

· PhD/MSc supervision.

· PhD in Mathematics, Physics or Engineering.

· Experience in developing mathematical models for physical processes.

· Experience in analytical and numerical methods for partial differential equations.

· Good command of the English language.

For the first position (Call Ref. 2021-009-P04400) applicants must submit a curriculum vitae and a cover letter​ by email to​, scientific enquiries should be addressed to until 15/01/2022, indicating the reference code of the offer: 2021-009-P04400.
