The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) invites 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.

Position is available for pursuing PhD programme at the Technical University of Denmark in the field of Applied Mathematics.

Worth of Award

The position as PhD follows code 1017. Normally the position is remunerated with a gross salary of NOK 432 700 per annum. Two per cent of the salary will be deducted as an obligatory premium to the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund.


  • 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.
