The Department of Mathematics at University of California, Santa Barbara invites applications for two postdoctoral positions broadly in the area of applied and computational mathematics. Candidates are expected to have expertise in at least one of the following areas: analysis of electronic structure models, multiscale modeling, tensor networks, or quantum physics. Candidates with physics, chemistry, or materials science backgrounds who have extensive experience in terms of method development are also welcome. The positions permit the teaching of two under/graduate courses during the academic year in the appropriate teaching title.

An international team of mathematicians, led by UCSB Professor Björn Birnir, has published a complete mathematical description of boundary layer turbulence. The paper, published in the journal Physical Review Research, synthesizes decades of work on the topic to provide a mathematical formula describing the turbulance caused when flow of water, air, or other fluids interacts with a boundary such as a pipe wall or the surface of the earth. Boundary layer interactions are important to many scientific and engineering fields, from meteorology to optimizing the aerodynamics of cars and aircraft.
