Updated: about 2 months ago
Location: Coventry, ENGLAND
Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 31 Aug 2021

Full time, fixed term contract until 30 September 2023.

Applications are invited for a Senior Research Fellow (High Performance Computing) position on the EPSRC Prosperity Partnership for Advanced Simulation and Modelling of Virtual Systems (ASIMoV) project. ASIMoV is a consortium project with collaborators from Rolls-Royce plc., the Centre for Modelling & Simulation (CFMS), Zenotech Ltd, the Universities of Edinburgh, Oxford, Cambridge, Bristol and Warwick/Birmingham. The aim of this 5-year project is to lead the virtual certification of gas turbine engines and develop the next generation of engineering simulation and modelling techniques for Rolls-Royce engine design.

You will posses a good Masters degree and have a strong background in developing parallel applications for High Performance Computing systems and will be able to contribute to the design, analysis, implementation, optimization and deployment of parallel algorithms and software for multi-core and many-core architectures on large-scale cluster systems. You should have excellent programming skills in C/C++ or FORTRAN and have demonstrable experience in writing and running parallel codes using MPI, OpenMP, CUDA or SYCL/OpenCL. You will also have interest in the design and development of compilers/translators/code-generation, with good knowledge gained in this area at least at undergraduate level. The ideal candidate would have excellent software development skills in relation to developing parallel numerical simulation software for HPC systems. The role requires an enthusiastic and task/goal oriented individual who will be able to communicate effectively and aim to deliver the ASIMOV goals.

The Warwick research contributions to the ASIMOV project will be led by Dr. Gihan Mudalige (Warwick) and Prof. Stephen Jarvis (Birmingham). The challenges to be addressed in this project at Warwick will involve:

1. High-Level Abstractions for performance portability
2. Performance modelling and optimization of HPC applications
3. Lean Computing Optimizations – Communications avoiding algorithms

Candidates should provide with their application form, a CV, a list of publications (if applicable) and contact details of two referees.

Informal enquiries to are welcome.

Start date for the post is expected to be October 2021, but this is subject to negotiation.
