Subject: Noncommutative Algebras and Applications, Germany, Jun 2015

Scope: Besides analytic approaches to noncommutative algebraic
problems, we see nowadays large developments of numerical solutions of
problems in linear noncommutative algebras. Therefore, the organizers
intend to bring together researches including Ph.D. students to open
up the opportunity to present and discuss their current and upcoming
results on noncommutative algebras, may it be an analytic or numerical
result, or an application to other fields. But we will not exclude
such commutative R^4 - structures like tessarines, Segre's bicomplex
numbers and split-complex numbers as well as corresponding structures
in higher dimensions (e.g. Cayley-Dickson algebras).

Topics on noncommutative algebras:
1. Linear algebra topics
2. Analytic topics
3. Applications to other fields than mathematics

More details and a possibility for registration can be found in The deadline for registration is April 15,
2015. However an information whether one considers participation would
be welcome by February 15, 2015.

The conference will take place in the Haus am Steinberg in Goslar, in
the North of the Harz Mountains.

For questions, please, contact one of the organizers.

Subject: Postdoc Position, Numerical Methods for Sensing Applications, ASU

The School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences (SoMSS) at Arizona
State University (ASU) invites applications for a Postdoctoral
Associate with an anticipated start date of August 2015. This is a
non-tenure-track, benefits-eligible, year-to-year appointment,
renewable annually for up to three academic years contingent upon
satisfactory performance, availability of resources, and the needs of
the unit.

Applicants are required to have a Ph.D. or equivalent by the time of
appointment in the mathematical sciences, engineering, or a closely
related field; and the potential for excellent teaching and
research. Desired qualifications include knowledge of radar
technologies, such as synthetic aperture radar; and a solid background
in signal processing, in particular Fourier Analysis. Knowledge of
frames, regularization techniques, and numerical analysis is also
desirable. Teaching load is at the discretion of the director, but is
typically two courses per year.

Applications must be submitted online through mathjobs at and must include the
1) A cover letter
2) A curriculum vitae
3) A personal statement addressing the candidate’s research program
4) A statement of teaching experience and philosophy
5) At least three letters of recommendation that must be submitted at
the mathjobs site, including one that addresses teaching.

Initial review of applications will begin on February 6th, 2015; if
not filled, every week thereafter until the search is closed. A
background check is required for employment. Arizona State University
is a VEVRAA Federal Contractor and an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative
Action Employer. All qualified applicants will be considered without
regard to race, color, sex, religion, national origin, disability,
protected veteran status, or any other basis protected by law.

Subject: PhD Position, NA or Civil Engineering, Heriot-Watt

The Department of Mathematics and the Institute for Infrastructure and
the Environment at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, are looking for
a highly skilled Ph.D. candidate for a fully funded, prestigious IIE
scholarship at the interface of numerical analysis and computational

The proposed project will investigate generalized space-time and
spectral stochastic finite element methods for the wave equation in
the presence of uncertainties, such as an unknown wave speed.

Engineering applications include the environmental impact of ground
vibrations caused by high-speed trains or vibration-based subsurface
imaging to detect oil reservoirs.

Depending on interests of the applicant, the emphasis could be either
on the numerical analysis of finite element methods, computational
aspects or on applications.

To be eligible, applicants should have a first-class honours degree in
a relevant subject or a 2.1 honours degree plus Masters (or
equivalent). Scholarships will be awarded by competitive merit.
