Scientific Software Engineer/Computational Scientist 1364 views

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
