Six PhD positions are available at the Laboratory of Computational Methods
and Numerical Analysis (http://www-lacan.upc.edu/) of the Universitat
Politècnica de Catalunya-BarcelonaTech (http://www.upc.edu/) in Spain.

The four-year PhD fellowships cover the full tuition, a monthly stipend,
and health insurance.

The main research areas of the doctoral positions are:
- Reliable and robust model reduction for real-time simulations
- Phase field modeling and simulation of fracture in active materials and
of biomembranes
- Numerical methods for coupling heterogeneous models
- Computer simulation of hydraulic fracturing in three-dimensions
