Berkeley Lab’s Scientific Data Management Research Group (SDM) within Computational Research Division has an immediate opening for a post-doctoral researcher to develop parallel I/O libraries and novel object-based storage technologies for upcoming exascale era.

 

SDM performs research in scientific data management and analysis for exascale computing and multi-petabyte experimental and simulation datasets. The overarching goal of the group is to enable scientific discoveries through the design, analysis, and development of extreme-scale data management technologies that allow scientists to access their data more efficiently. Members of SDM group work closely with application scientists throughout the DOE Office of Science community (e.g., astronomy, astrophysics, climate change research, fusion research, high energy physics, nuclear science, and life sciences), with faculty and students from universities throughout the world, and with staff in the NERSC production computing facility as well as other DOE Leadership Computing Facilities. Group members have access to leading-edge computing platforms.

 

What You Will Do:

  • Contribute to a research team focused on developing storage systems and parallel I/O technologies that affect performance of storing and accessing by scientific applications.

  • Conduct research involving parallel I/O systems and performance optimization of HPC applications’ I/O.

  • Develop object storage technologies for HPC.

  • Document work and results in the form of journal papers and conference proceeding papers, and present work and results at scientific meetings.

  • Collaborate with other computer scientists, applied mathematicians, computational scientists to ensure the resultant technologies are applicable for their respective computational challenges and coding styles.


What is Required:

  • PhD degree in applied mathematics, computer science, physics, or related fields or equivalent combination of education and experience.

  • Demonstrated expertise in the implementation and optimizations I/O and storage systems.

  • Demonstrated experience in working with high-performance computing applications using C/C++, MPI, and I/O libraries, such as HDF5 and MPI-IO.

  • Demonstrated experience in performance modeling and performance analysis for parallel I/O.

  • Demonstrated experience in using distributed-memory computing platforms.

  • Knowledge of C/C++, MPI, HDF5, netCDF, and MPI-IO.


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 4 years paid postdoctoral experience. 

  • Salary will be predetermined based on postdoctoral step rates.

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

  • 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.
