Berkeley Lab’s Computing Division has an opening for a Computing Postdoctoral Scholar. You will conduct fundamental and applied research one or more of the following areas: parallel computing, graph algorithms, computational biology, machine learning, randomized algorithms, sparse matrix computations, and/or high-performance computing.


What You Will Do:

  • Design and implement parallel algorithms for computational biology, machine learning, or graph analytics.

  • Collaborate with domain scientists such as biologists and chemists to identify computational problems and map them to distributed-memory computing platforms.

  • Publish and present research results in high-impact journals and top conferences in the areas of computational biology, parallel computing, machine learning, randomized algorithms, and high-performance graph analytics.


What is Required:

  • PhD degree, within the last 3 years, in Computer Science, Computational Sciences, Computational Biology, Applied Mathematics, or a related technical field.

  • Proficiency in C and/or C++ programming language.

  • Proficiency in one or more of the parallel libraries/languages: MPI, OpenMP, UPC, UPC++, CUDA.

  • Ability to design and implement parallel algorithms for computational biology, machine learning, or graph analytics, on shared- and distributed-memory parallel platforms.

  • Ability to publish in top journals and conferences.

  • Ability to conduct research in a highly collaborative environment.

  • Excellent oral and written communication skills.


Additional Desired Qualifications:

  • Software engineering tools: make, cmake, revision control systems (such as git).

  • One or more of the popular scripting languages such as Python, Julia, or R.

  • Working knowledge on probability and randomized algorithms.

  • Working knowledge of sparse matrix computations.


The posting shall remain open until the position is filled.


Notes:

  • This is a full time, 2 year, postdoctoral appointment with the possibility of renewal based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds and ongoing operational needs. You must have less than 3 years paid postdoctoral experience. Salary for Postdoctoral positions depends on years of experience post-degree.

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

  • This position is represented by a union for collective bargaining purposes.

  • Salary will be predetermined based on postdoctoral step rates.

  • 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.
