The Numerical Analysis group is looking for a motivated PhD candidate to work on stable and efficient numerical methods for time dependent Maxwell equations under the supervision of Dr. ir. C.A. Urzúa-Torres. The successful applicant will work on aspects related to the development, analysis and implementation of space-time boundary element methods for Maxwell equations.
Candidates are expected to have finished, or be about to finish, a master’s degree in mathematics, computational science and engineering, or a closely related field. A good knowledge of numerical analysis, numerical methods for differential equations and scientific computing is required. Further details can be found below under Requirements.
The appointment is for a duration of 4 years. The intended starting date is September 2022 but there is some flexibiliy. The salary is the standard salary for a PhD student of the Collective Labour Agreement of Dutch Universities.

Delft University of Technology is built on strong foundations. As creators of the world-famous Dutch waterworks and pioneers in biotech, TU Delft is a top international university combining science, engineering and design. It delivers world class results in education, research and innovation to address challenges in the areas of energy, climate, mobility, health and digital society. For generations, our engineers have proven to be entrepreneurial problem-solvers, both in business and in a social context. At TU Delft we embrace diversity and aim to be as inclusive as possible (see our Code of Conduct). Together, we imagine, invent and create solutions using technology to have a positive impact on a global scale.
Challenge. Change. Impact!
The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) brings together three disciplines - electrical engineering, mathematics and computer science. Combined, they reinforce each other and are the driving force behind the technology we use in our daily lives. Technology such as the electricity grid, which our faculty is helping to make future-proof. We are also working on a world in which humans and computers reinforce each other. We are mapping out disease processes using single cell data, and using mathematics to simulate gigantic ash plumes after a volcanic eruption. There is plenty of room here for ground-breaking research. We educate innovative engineers and have excellent labs and facilities that underline our strong international position. In total, more than 1,100 employees and 4,000 students work and study in this innovative environment.
