OCMO exists to promote fusion between mathematics and the engineering sciences. Distinctively, we are committed to making a practical contribution to engineering. We do this in a number of ways:
- foster research through a scientific consortium
- grow the careers of young scientists and engineers from New Zealand and elsewhere through research and project opportunities
- pursue areas of contemporary consequence which may benefit from computational science
- develop tools to allow natural resources and physical hazards to be managed with greater clarity and confidence
Our aim is to establish a profitable centre of excellence in Computational Engineering. Our five year plan is to hire 10 people. We are therefore glad to hear from people who have interests consistent with our aims. We are keen to support PhD candidates with a significant background (or at least capability) in mathematics, with the eventual aim of hiring appropriate individuals. There are also opportunities for supporting post-docs with the relevant background. Information on our expectations can be found on this link.
