3 Postdoc positions at the Ecuadorian Research Center on Mathematical
Modelling (ModeMat)

The Ecuadorian Research Center on Mathematical Modelling (ModeMat) at
Escuela Politecnica Nacional de Quito invites applications for three
postdoctoral positions in the following areas:

(1) parallel computing of solutions to partial differential equations,
(2) computational methods for image processing, and
(3) optimization of public transportation systems.

The Research Center on Mathematical Modelling (ModeMat) is a
multidisciplinary center that aims at developing new mathematical and
computational techniques and building innovative mathematical models for
solving problems arising in different application areas. The current
application areas of the center are:

* Optimization and control
* Logistics and transport
* Modeling and simulation in the biosciences

Successful candidates should have a PhD in Applied Mathematics and have
demonstrated potential for excellence in research. Previous postdoc
