The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) is inviting applications for a 3-year PhD position, starting December 1, 2016. The position is financed by NTNU and is part of the joint doctoral degree program together with the Technical University of Denmark (DTU).
In this project, University will study iterative methods for the solution of inverse problems with an emphasis on methods applicable to multiphysics tomography. In particular, we want to develop an improved understanding concerning the relationship between certain types of iterative methods and non-linear parabolic PDEs.
The goal of the thesis is to use this knowledge for developing and analyzing algorithms that are better suited for tackling the specific needs required for the reconstruction of medical images.
Course Level: Position is available for pursuing PhD programme at the Technical University of Denmark.
Study Subject: Position is awarded in the field of Applied Mathematics.
Scholarship can be taken in Denmark
- The applicant must have (or equivalent) in applied mathematics, computational sciences, engineering, or equivalent academic qualifications. Preference will be given to candidates who can document background in applied functional analysis.
Nationality: Candidates of all nationalities can apply for this PhD position.
