Posted: February 24, 2020

Application Deadline: Open Until Filled

Job Description

The Leadership Computing Facility at Argonne National Laboratory (ALCF) seeks well-prepared candidates in chemistry, physics, biology, engineering, computer science, applied mathematics, especially with an interest in the convergence of simulation, data science, and artificial intelligence for exascale computational science, for multiple positions as postdoctoral fellows. 

The positions will provide an extraordinary opportunity to advance breakthrough scientific discoveries on Aurora, one of the world’s first exascale systems for science research. The ESP is preparing a suite of multidisciplinary applications to launch some of the world’s first exascale computational science research on Aurora, the exascale supercomputer we will stand up in 2021. This is a job posting is for multiple future opportunities in the following skillsets:

  • Computational chemistry and materials science—electronic structure, catalysis, and/or experience with graph analytics and machine learning/deep learning
  • Computational physics—high-energy physics, cosmology, and incorporation of data science methodologies in experimental/observational and simulation workflows
  • Computational biology—deep learning in cancer drug response, in-situ data analytics in circulatory-system flows
  • Computational fluid dynamics—incorporation of data-driven reduced-order models in aerodynamic flows
  • Machine learning, data analysis, and applied statistics as methodologies in computational science
     

This is an Evergreen job posting which allows candidates to apply once to be considered for multiple job requisitions; you may be asked to apply to a specific job posting in the future.

  • Applicants should have a doctorate degree in chemistry, physics, engineering, computer science, mathematics, statistics, or a related discipline.
  • Applicants should have documented and comprehensive expertise and/or experience in computational science and/or data-driven computational science.
  • Programming expertise in C++, Python, Fortran, or another programming language is essential; experience with parallel computing, including MPI, OpenMP, CUDA, SYCL, OpenCL, or Kokkos is valuable.
  • Experience with machine learning and deep learning frameworks and tools is useful
  • Openings are available immediately, but there is flexibility in start dates.
