Two post-doctoral positions in Barcelona

The Industrial Mathematics Research Group at the CRM is seeking applicants for two post-doctoral positions.

The first is a short-term Post-doctoral post, to join the project Exploiting mathematics to aid in the design of adsorption columns, funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation. The project involves mathematicians and environmental chemists and will build on the group’s previous work on modelling the removal of environmental contaminants, such as greenhouse gases from air and industrial outlets as well as pharmaceuticals and Volatile Organic Compounds from water. The ultimate project goal is to develop software, taking advantage of mathematical techniques, which will provide accurate and efficient results and so aid in the design and improvement of sorption equipment. This contract is envisaged to start in December 2022 (according to availability) and will last until Dec. 2023 or soon thereafter. For further details see Short-term CRM Position.

The second is part of a more general call funded through the Spanish Ministry Maria de Maeztu Centres of Excellence grant. Again the project will be related to environmental contaminant removal. Mathematically this involves tackling an advection-diffusion equation coupled to a mass sink and applied over a moving domain. For further details see Two Year CRM Position (the Industrial Maths group forms part of the Climate Change sub-area).


PhD in Mathematics, Engineering or Physics.

Experience in numerical and analytical methods for partial differential equations.

Good command of the English language.

Ability to communicate between mathematicians and experimental scientists.

Initial enquiries should be made by contacting Prof. Tim Myers (
