Open Positions


The Max Planck Computing and Data Facility (MPCDF), in collaboration with theory groups of several Max Planck Institutes working in the fields of Materials- and Bio-Sciences, theoretical Chemistry, Plasmaphysics and Astrophysics, is looking for two

Computational Scientists or HPC application experts

The successful candidate will be associated with the applications group at the MPCDF (based in Garching near Munich, Germany) and will work on the development and optimization of scientific high-performance computing (HPC) simulation codes, and will contribute to their extension to exascale HPC architectures (e.g. GPU-accelerated clusters). In addition, there are opportunities for engaging in machine-learning and high-performance data analytics projects.The applicant should hold a PhD in Physics, applied Mathematics, Computer Science or a similar subject. A strong background in parallel programming (ideally with modern Fortran, C or C++, together with MPI, OpenMP, and GPU programming models), some experience with large code projects and high performance computing are necessary. We offer the opportunity to work on state-of-the-art numerical algorithms, leading HPC codes and latest supercomputer technology and to maintain close collaborations with the code owners (e.g. OCTOPUS, GROMACS, …) and domain scientists from various Max-Planck-Institutes e.g. with the Max-Planck-Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter, the Max-Planck-Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, the Max-Planck-Institute for Plasmaphysics, and others. Scientific domain expertise in one of the fields of materials and biosciences, theoretical chemistry, polymer research, astrophysics, or plasma physics is an asset but not obligatory. The full time position starts as soon as possible and is initially limited for a maximum period of three years. Salary will be based on experience according to the German TVöD.

The Max-Planck Society is an equal opportunity employer and women and minorities are encouraged to apply. For further questions please contact Dr. Markus Rampp (markus.rampp@mpcdf.mpg.de). Please apply with a letter of motivation and a CV online by 3rd August 2018.
