PostDoc position: Exascale Software for Hyperbolic PDE Solvers
(at Technische Universität München, University of Trento and Durham University)
ExaHyPE (www.exahype.eu) is a project funded by the European Horizon 2020 initiative. ExaHyPE’s mission is to develop a novel simulation engine for hyperbolic PDE problems at exascale. Within the four-year project period, we tackle grand-challenge simulations in Seismology and Astrophysics. The underlying simulation engine will be based on high-order discontinuous Galerkin discretization on dynamically adaptive Cartesian grids. ExaHyPE brings together researchers in HPC, numerical mathematics, computational seismology and computational astrophysics on a highly interdisciplinary challenge. To strengthen our project team, we are looking for a postdoc researcher to coordinate the project’s joint research, software development and outreach.
We offer an exciting perspective of early-career research in an excellent international environment: ideally, the project coordinator will work at all involved research groups – at Technical University of Munich, Durham University and University of Trento. We are looking for an individual with strong expertise in the development of simulation software for latest supercomputing hardware, ideally also having experience with high-order finite-element or finite-volume-type methods for hyperbolic PDE systems. Experience with geo- or astrophysics applications is welcome, however we see the ability and passion to integrate and learn new techniques as your most important qualification. In the ExaHyPE project, you will coordinate the joint research in our interdisciplinary team, supervise the joint software development, drive the realization of grand challenge simulations and represent the project at international conferences. Your key mission will be to serve as mortar in-between the mathematics, HPC and application groups, up to triggering joint consortium publications.
The ExaHyPE partners are convinced that diversity in research groups (in terms of gender, nationality, etc.) helps to improve the quality of collaborative research – our joint recruiting procedure reflects this conviction. All partner universities and the ExaHyPE project provide dedicated support for researchers with families. The position is open immediately and scheduled to run until September 2019. Applications will be considered until the positions are filled. Please send your application to the ExaHyPE team (preferably as a single PDF document, to firstname.lastname@example.org).
