Twitter The mission of the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) is to accelerate major scientific discoveriesand engineering breakthroughs for humanity by designing and providing world-leading computingfacilities in partnership with the computational science community. We help researchers solve some of the world’s largest and most complex problems with our unique combination of supercomputing resources and expertise. We invite you to apply for a postdoctoral appointee position with the ALCF. You will research and develop massively parallel lattice quantum chromodynamics codes. The focus of the project is to deliver calculations urgently needed by experimental programs of high energy and nuclear physics, based on the computational methods of lattice quantum chromodynamics (lattice QCD). QCD embodies our most fundamental understanding of the strong nuclear force and associated particles, a key component of the more general Standard Model of particle physics. In high energy physics, lattice calculations are required to extract the fundamental parameters of the standard model (such as quark masses) from experiment. Evidence for physics beyond the Standard Model can be discovered if discrepancies are found between different methods for determining these parameters. You will join the Computational Science (Catalyst) group in ALCF; this is a highly collaborative environment involving science application teams, academia, industry as well as other national laboratories and agencies. The chosen applicant will have a rare chance to learn and exploit some of the world’s largest supercomputers, and use state-of-the-art techniques on current and upcoming supercomputing systems to help solve significant real-world problems. We expect you to have: + PhD \

  • 0-3 years in computational physics, or in a related field.

  • Comprehensive knowledge of numerical methods, parallel programming with pthreads, OpenMP, MPI.

  • Comprehensive experience programming in one or more programming languages such as Fortran, C, C++, and Python.

  • Considerable knowledge of parallel algorithms, distributed memory architectures, and parallel performance evaluation of domain specific implementations.

  • Candidate should have the ability to create, maintain, and support high-quality software.

  • An ideal candidate would have published their scientific software in a public repository (e.g. GitHub)

  • Good communication skills both verbal and written.

  • Considerable independent judgment and critical thinking. Desirable Knowledge and Skills:

  • Considerable knowledge of lattice quantum chromodynamics.Experience with developing and using domain specific languages.

  • Good experience and skills in interdisciplinary teams involving mathematicians, computer scientists, and discipline scientists.

  • Collaborative skills including the ability to work well with other laboratories and universities, supercomputer centers, and industry.

  • Good publication record, preferably including first-author publication(s).

  • Experience with scientific applications that scale to several thousand MPI processes on massively parallel platforms. As an equal employment opportunity and affirmative action employer, Argonne National Laboratory is committed to a diverse and inclusive workplace that fosters collaborative scientific discovery and innovation.
