Berkeley Lab is seeking a Computational Project Scientist

The Center for Computational Sciences and Engineering (CCSE) in Berkeley Lab’s Computational Research Division (CRD) develops and applies advanced computational methodologies to solve large-scale scientific and engineering problems arising in DOE mission areas involving energy, environment, and industrial technology. The primary focus of CCSE researchers is on designing algorithms for multiscale, multiphysics problems described by nonlinear systems of partial differential equations, and in developing implementations of algorithms that target current and next-generation massively parallel computational architectures. CCSE researchers work collaboratively with application scientists to develop and deploy state-of-the-art solution methodologies in these fields.

CCSE has an immediate opening for a project scientist to join the Pele computational combustion team funded by the Exascale Computing Project (ECP).  The person in this position is responsible for developing and implementing new methodology in both the compressible and low Mach number ECP combustion codes, and in optimizing their performance on a variety of architectures.

The Project Scientist/Engineer will:

  • Develop and implement new methodology to improve the fidelity and/or performance of the existing Pele codes

  • Profile, benchmark and assess the performance of the Pele codes; identify and address bottlenecks

  • Develop and deploy unit and regression tests

  • Contribute to the online documentation of the Pele codes

  • Work closely with other members of the Pele team and the AMReX team to ensure compatibility of Pele software strategies with other parts of the infrastructure

  • Communicate effectively with other members of the Pele team, the AMReX team, and outside users of the Pele code

Minimum Qualifications:

  • PhD in Computer Science, Computational Science, Applied Mathematics, Engineering or a related field or equivalent combination of skills and experience.

  • Significant hands-on experience with both compressible and low Mach number modeling of combustion phenomena

  • Significant programming experience with both C++ and modern Fortran

  • Significant programming experience with MPI and OpenMP

  • Familiarity with git for software version control

  • Demonstrated experience with visualization tools for numerical simulation results

  • Excellent interpersonal skills for working in a diverse team environment

  • Strong written and verbal communication skills to present findings

  • Demonstrated ability to publish research findings in peer-reviewed journals

Additional Desired Qualifications:


  • Experience with python a plus

  • Experience with CUDA and/or OpenACC a plus

 

Notes:


  • This is a two-year term appointment with the possibility of renewal dependent on performance, continuing availability of funding and ongoing operational needs.

  • Full-time, M-F, exempt (monthly paid) from overtime pay.

  • Salary is commensurate with experience.

  • This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.

  • Work will be primarily performed at: Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, 1 Cyclotron Road, Berkeley, CA.

Berkeley Lab (LBNL) addresses the world’s most urgent scientific challenges by advancing sustainable energy, protecting human health, creating new materials, and revealing the origin and fate of the universe. Founded in 1931, Berkeley Lab’s scientific expertise has been recognized with 13 Nobel prizes. The University of California manages Berkeley Lab for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.
