Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics and Center for Systems Biology invites applications for Scientific Software Engineer/Computational Scientist (f/m/d) to reinforce the team working on the open-source project OpenFPM, a transparent middleware for distributed parallel computing. The position is in the research group of Ivo Sbalzarini, who develops cutting-edge algorithms and methods for computer simulations and high-performance computing.
- Applicants are expected to have a M.Sc. degree (or equivalent) or a PhD in Computer Science, Scientific Computing, Computational Science, or related areas.
- Excellent C++ programming skills, including Template Meta Programming, and experience with numerical methods and their efficient implementation are required.
- Experience in parallel programming with OpenMP, MPI, or CUDA is helpful. Proficiency with developer tools such as git, Github, Jenkins or Travis, automated test suits, etc. is an essential necessity.
- Applicant must possess English language skills, both spoken and written, as the entire project is conducted in English and English is the working language at the institute.
Role and responsibilities:
- Implementation of advanced numerical methods (e.g., DC-PSE, Adaptive Particle Representations, generalized Poisson solvers, non-equidistant Fourier transforms, high-dimensional polynomial interpolation, etc.) as reusable, tested, and documented modules in the OpenFPM framework.
- Help extending the OpenFPM core to support the implemented extensions.
- Benchmark the resulting codes for performance, parallel scalability, and numerical accuracy.
- Writing the technical code documentation.
- Applying the code to simulations in collaboration with groups from physics (Frank Jülicher + Carl Modes).
Starting date: April 1, 2019; full-time position
Duration: 3 years
- Submit completed application by last date as a single pdf file via the online application system quoting Code 2019-OpenFPM with following documents:
- Description of previous accomplishments
- Letter of motivation
- Contact details of three referees
