Job Code: 07/2020
Job Offer from May 7, 2020
The Max Planck Computing and Data Facility (MPCDF) is looking for a HPC application expert (m/f/d)

The successful candidate will be associated with the applications group at the MPCDF (based on the research campus Garching near Munich, Germany) and will work on the high-performance eigenvalue-solver library ELPA. The main task will be to port and optimize the ELPA library for upcoming Exascale computer architectures, in the context of the European Horizon 2020 Center of Excellence “NOMAD2”.

The applicant should hold a PhD in Physics, Computer Science, applied Mathematics, or a similar subject. A strong background in the parallel programming models MPI and OpenMP and in scientific software development is mandatory. Ideally, the candidate offers a background in numerical linear algebra and has a profound knowledge of the Scalapack library, complemented with some familiarity of major high-performance eigenvalue solver libraries and algorithms. Knowledge in GPU programming with CUDA or OpenACC is considered as a plus, but is not strictly necessary.

We offer the opportunity to work on state-of-the-art numerical algorithms, and specifically on one of the leading libraries in the field of numerical eigenvalue solvers, with access to the latest supercomputer technologies. Working in the Center of Excellence “NOMAD2”, the applicant will be embedded in an international consortium of leading experts in computational materials science and high-performance computing, and has the opportunity to present at national and international conferences.

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. Additional benefits include flexible working hours and a friendly working environment, proximity to Underground Station (U6), discount MVV job tickets available, free Parking on Premise.
