Applications are invited for a post-doctoral position in HPC in the Chair of Computational Science
(Professor Petros Koumoutsakos) at ETHZ to begin January 1st, 2011.
Applicants must have demonstrated expertise in massively parallel computing and evidence of strength in a scientific discipline such as Computer Science, Applied Mathematics, Fluid and Structural Mechanics, Materials Science, Physics.
Experience in developing software for multicore architectures is highly desirable. The successful candidates will participate in an international,interdisciplinary team that develops methods and software for Scientific and Engineering problems with largely disparate temporal and spatial scales. A problem of particular interest involves multibillion element flow simulations on tens/hundreds of thousands of processors to investigate the singularity of the Navier-Stokes equations (one of the Clay Institute millenium problems).
Applications should include a curriculum vitae including a list of publications and contact information of three references.
Applications are welcome until the position has been filled.
