Job openings at PDC

Scientific Programmer at PDC

Would you like to help develop a library of cutting-edge performance non-bonded interactions, as well as a parallelization framework, based on GROMACS, that can be used by other particle applications? If you have tertiary academic qualifications (preferably a PhD) in computer science, computational science, or in a science area using molecular dynamics simulations - including proven experience developing and working with large scientific codes (preferably in molecular dynamics) on large HPC systems - and if you would be interested in abstracting suitable parts from GROMACS into a library and improving the performance and scalability of this library on cutting edge exascale hardware (including accelerators), then please check out the information about this new position at PDC and apply by 31st May:  (for information in English) or  (for information in Swedish).

PhD position in Exascale Computing

PDC is calling for applications from students interested in undertaking a doctoral degree in Exascale Computing. The closing date for applications is the 19th of May 2019.

The position aims at research and development of extreme scale simulation codes for future exascale systems. Achieving efficient performance at exascale will require either unreasonable large problem sizes, or the development of new parallelisation approaches and algorithms which retain parallel scaling even for very few elements per core. The successful candidate is expected to contribute to the development and implementation of novel parallelisation methods and algorithm, with a focus on spectral element methods to efficiently exploit characteristics of anticipated exascale systems, like increased parallelism, heterogeneity and deep memory hierarchies, using established and emerging parallel programming environments (such as MPI, OpenMP, OpenACC and PGAS). The implementations will be based on the NEK5000 code in collaboration with the KTH Mechanics Department.
