Post-doctoral position in High Performance Computing at ETH Zurich

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.
