IPUL-MHD Fifth Framework Project

Institute of Physics of the University of Latvia invites applications for 4 PhD and 3 postdoctoral positions

[in the project founded by the fifth framework programme of the European Commission]

We offer training and research positions in the field of fluid mechanics and heat and mass transfer related to the magnetohydrodynamics of liquid metals and semiconductor melts and magnetic liquids for 3 years (PhD) and 18 months (postdocs) with 750 EUR and 1500 EUR monthly allowance (including taxes), respectively. Requirements for PhD candidates: master's degree in physics, completed courses of hydrodynamics and heat and mass transfer or experimental physics; basic knowledge of numerical analysis and computer programming. Postdoctoral candidates are supposed to have PhD in physics, research experience in hydrodynamics or heat and mass transfer as well as in computational hydrodynamics.  Applications including CV, publication list and diploma copy are expected at the Institute of Physics of the University of Latvia, Miera Str. 32, Salaspils LV-2169, Latvia; Fax: +371-7901214; e-mail: PhD positions are available immediately but postdoctoral ones begin in year 2004.
