Computational Research Scientist (Computer Architecture)
Company: Berkley Labs
Posted on: January 17, 2020
Berkeley Lab s Computational Research Division has a new opening
for a Computational research Scientist. This position will take on
a leadership role in an effort to develop efficient specialized
architecture with the appropriate support by the software stack to
enable integration of novel computational accelerators for future
extremely heterogeneous HPC systems.
What You Will Do:
Design and implement specialized architectures of different scale
and their integration into future heterogeneous HPC ecosystem.
Work closely with the domain scientists for deep understanding of
the computational needs and current bottlenecks in existing HPC
systems to be able to overcome these limitations.
Work closely with the programming language and compiler developers
to provide full support and integration of the novel accelerators
into HPC software environment.
Collaborate with domain scientists to plan on potential integration
of the specialized architectures for a broader use case.
Participate in all requested assignments, including research,
preparation of proposals, documentation of results and reporting
results to sponsors.
What is Required:
PhD in Computer Science, Applied Mathematics, Computational
Science, Mechanical Engineering, Physics or a related discipline
with at least 3 years of professional experience, or an equivalent
combination of education and experience with a strong background in
computational methods and scientific computing.
Demonstrated expertise in working with modeling and simulation
methods and software tools for hardware exploration.
Demonstrated expertise in Verilog, C++, Scala and Python.
Leading edge knowledge and research expertise in computer
Familiarity with HPC and scientific computing applications.
Familiarity with parallel programming concepts (languages,
approaches, compilers, schedulers).
Familiarity with low-level programming (assembly languages,
Familiarity with novel computing paradigms (quantum computing,
