IsoGeometric Analysis (IGA) is a novel technique for the discretization of Partial Differential Equations , introduced in 2005 by T.J.R. Hughes and co-authors. IGA was introduced with the motivation of improving the interoperability between PDEs solver and Computer Aided Design (CAD). The aim was to reduce the error in the representation of the computational domain and simplify the re-meshing procedure by incorporating the exact CAD geometry at the coarsest level of discretization. This is achieved by using Non Uniform Rational B-Splines for the geometry description as well as for the PDE discretization. The construction of a fully integrated framework for CAD and engineering analysis of PDE models is the ultimate and most challenging goal of IGA. The research activity is devoted to the mathematical and fundamental open issues.

The public call with detailed attendance and selection rules (Art 4 and 6) can be found at: http://www.unipv.eu/on-line/Home/Ricerca/Assegnidiricerca.html.
Main requirements are:1) degree (with a course duration of not less than 4 years, as referred to in the pre-existing academic regulations pursuant to D.M. n. 509/1999) or post-graduate degrees (pursuant to D.M. n. 509/1999 and to n. 270/2004) awarded by Italian or foreign Universities recognized as equivalent - for the purposes of establishing the equivalence, candidates must provide the necessary documentation to enable the evaluating board to proceed with the qualification assessment; 2) scientific or professional curriculum suitable for conducting the research activity; 3) any Ph.D. title (Art 2- par. 1).
The application form, signed in original, have to be: 1) submitted by means of the standard template that can be found at the above address; 2) supplied with the scientific-professional curriculum vitae (dated and signed) and a photocopy of a valid identity document; 3) supplied with the list of publications and copies of them (or in electronic form); 4) supplied with any further documents / certificates / self-certification foreseen by Art. 4; 5) sent by post service (no e-mail, no website) in original paper copy to the Department/Centre of interest (see Art. 4). The candidate selection will take place on the basis of the documented qualifications and a personal interview, completed by a test concerning the knowledge of foreign language (see Art. 6 - par. 1)
