Job Information

Los Alamos National Laboratory Computational Modeling Postdoc in Los Alamos, New Mexico

Vacancy Name: IRC72782


Job Title Computational Modeling Postdoc

Location Los Alamos, NM, US

Organization Name T-3/Fluid Dynamics And Solid Mechanics

Minimum Salary

Maximum Salary

What You Will Do

The Fluid Dynamics and Solid Mechanics group is looking for a postdoctoral scientist with a strong interest in computational modeling to help us explore new programming models for developing Earth System Models on next-generation and exascale computational platforms. In particular, we are looking for a candidate interested in helping prototype new coupled Earth System Models and individual component models in a task-parallel programming model framework. This work will involve a creative mix of new algorithm design, re-factoring of existing process models and rethinking our approaches to the architecture of large multi-physics codes like Earth System Models. For more information on this Coupling Approaches for Next Generation Architectures (CANGA) project, visit http://canga-scidac.org .

What You Need

Minimum Job Requirements:

  • Experience and proficiency in programming scientific code in C++ Demonstrated knowledge and experience in numerical fluid dynamics or other physical systems based on Partial Differential Equations (PDEs)

  • Ability to work collaboratively in a team with good interpersonal and communication skills

  • Demonstrated ability to express ideas clearly in oral and written presentations

Desired Skills:

  • Experience programming for high-performance computing systems

  • Experience working with large Earth System Models

  • Familiarity with task-parallel programming models like Legion, HPX, etc.

  • Experience using collaborative software management tools and workflow (e.g. git)

  • Familiarity with Fortran

Education: Ph. D. in physical sciences, applied math or computer/computational science is required.

Additional Details:

Position does not require a security clearance. Selected candidates will be subject to drug testing and other pre-employment background checks.

New-Employment Drug Test: The Laboratory requires successful applicants to complete a new-employment drug test and maintains a substance abuse policy that includes random drug testing.

Candidates may be considered for a Director's Postdoc Fellowship and outstanding candidates may be considered for the prestigious Richard P. Feynman, Darleane Christian Hoffman, J. Robert Oppenheimer, or Frederick Reines Distinguished Postdoc Fellowships.
