Postdoc position in Numerical Analysis, STFC, UK

We are looking for a talented and enthusiastic researcher to join our Numerical Analysis research team within the STFC’s Scientific Computing Department for a three year period.
The team is internationally known for its research into numerical linear algebra and optimization. The role involves both algorithmic research and the translation of this research into software.

You will be working in collaboration with world leaders in the field through an EU Horizon 2020 research grant. The NLAFET project focuses on delivering new algorithms and technologies for dense and sparse linear algebra on next generation supercomputers. The work at STFC will focus mainly on the strong scaling of sparse direct solvers using task-
based paradigms, though contributions will be made across the full range of the project. Impact will be delivered through publication of technical reports and research papers, through presentations at workshops and conferences and through the development and release of high quality research software.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Research into new parallel algorithms for solution of dense and sparse linear
  • Design and development of robust and efficient implementation
  • Writing technical reports and research papers
  • Presentations at workshops and conferences
  • Active collaboration with our international partners
  • Implementation of algorithms in high quality research software
  • Testing and benchmarking across a range of HPC systems
  • Occasional UK and international travel

About You:

The qualities that we are seeking can be grouped as:

  • PhD (or equivalent research experience) with strong emphasis on numerical or
    computational mathematics
  • Evidence of high quality research in numerical linear algebra
  • Significant experience in parallel C/C++ or Fortran
  • Understanding of technical issues around numerical computing and research software
  • Ability to communicate well in written and spoken English

Deadline: March 20th, 2016
