Theoretical and Computational Modeling of Wave Propagation: Solitons and Rogue Waves

A research assistant is needed in the efforts to understand the dynamics and propagation of nonlinear waves in Nature and engineering systems. Particular emphasis will be placed on solitons and rogue waves. Analytical schemes will be employed to study the generation and instability mechanisms. Computational modeling will further enhance the knowledge on the likelihood of emergence of these localized modes and extreme events. Such information will be applied to the physics of oceanic hydrodynamics and optical fiber systems.

Candidates should possess a bachelor or master degree in engineering or physical science with strong quantitative background.

Post-doctoral fellowship or visiting appointment of a short duration for established scientists will also be considered.
