Two PhD positions at the Inverse Problems group in RICAM, Austria

Description of the positions
Two PhD positions are open in the group "Inverse Problems", at Johann Radon Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics (RICAM), Linz, Austria. These positions are part of the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) project:[P22341-N18] "Electromagnetic Scattering by complex interfaces", led by Dr. M. Sini.
The starting date is estimated for September 1st 2010 or as soon as possible but not later than January 1st 2011. The positions are limited to three years. The research is funded according to the FWF salary guidelines. The starting gross income (approx. 1851.00 Euros) includes social security (pension), health care coverage, and unemployment benefits. Some additional funds will also be available for research purposes (conference participation, research visits abroad, etc.). The working language is English.

For both the positions a Master's degree in fields related to the mathematical analysis of partial differential equations is required and an advanced knowledge in computational mathematics (as boundary finite elements) is highly appreciated.

Application material to be sent to
1. A detailled CV, describing yourself, your research interests, achievements etc.
2. The scanned images of the Master's degree certi¯cat as well as the academic transcripts.
3. Two letters of recommendation (one of them from your Master thesis advisor).

An abstract of the project
Scattering or boundary value problems for complex interfaces have at least two di®erent origins:
I. They are approximate models for penetrable obstacles where the material of the interior part of the obstacle is so highly reflecting and does allow only week absorbtion. Hence the transmission conditions across the interface of the obstacle are replaced by surface impedance type boundary conditions.
II. Artificial materials, distributed along the surface of the obstacle, are used to produce more (or less) scattering by the obstacle. These artificial materials are modeled by coefficients appearing in the 'modified' transmission conditions.
A complex interface is characterized by its location, its geometry and the material distributed in/on it.
We are interested in studying the inverse problems associated to these two situations for some models described by the Maxwell systems. We divide our study into two interdependent parts:
a.) Inverse problems, In this case, we are given exterior measurements (boundary or scattering measurements) and we want to reconstruct the unknown complex interface.
b.) Design problems. In this case, we know the (shape of the) obstacle and we want to design it in such a way to be more (or less, if needed) visible from exterior measurements. We are interested by designs using surface or body coatings.

The way to AMINEF in Gedung Balai Pustaka

American Indonesian Exchange Foundation
Balai Pustaka Building, 6th. Floor
Jl. Gunung Sahari Raya No. 4
Jakarta 10720, Indonesia

1. The buses which goes to Senen Bus Station all of them pass through Gedung Balai Pustaka. Especially which route is through Pasar Baru .

2. Bus Transjakarta, from Blok M you have to change the bus 2-3 times.
Way 1 : from Blok M change the bus in Dukuh Atas bus stop to the bus towards Pulogadung, then take a bus in Pramuka bus stop towards Ancol, this bus pass through Gedung Balai Pustaka. The closest bus stop (Budi Utomo) is about 800 meters from Gedung Balai .
Way 2 : From Blok M take the bus in the Harmoni Bus Stop, the bus towards Pulogadung, get down in Senen Bus Stop and walk about 800 meters, or from this bus stop take the bus towards Ancol and get down as mentioned in way 1. About the distance, this two bus stops is about the same. (It is better if you take ojek or bajaj from this bus stop to Gedung Balai Pustaka)

3. If you take taxi with old tariff (TL=Tarif Lama) from blok M with no traffic jam is about Rp. 30.000,00.

4. From Blok M use bus Patas AC 76. Gedung Balai Pustaka is in the right side, after you pass through Depag, and say to conductor "Balai Pustaka"

5. Use a busway from Blok M towards Kota, get down in Sawah Besar bus stop. From here take a Mikrolet M12 towards Senen. After cross road Wahidin and before senen get down and cross the street.
