Job Location: Oak Ridge, TN

The Oak Ridge National Laboratorys Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) has the charge to develop and apply groundbreaking computational science capabilities in support of dramatic advances in our understanding of the physical world using that knowledge to address the most pressing national and international concerns. As a designated User Facility, the OLCF hosts one of the most powerful computers in the world and delivers an unparalleled environment in which to make new discoveries that will dramatically impact the nations ability to produce a secure energy economy and increase mankinds fundamental understanding of our world. The facility has a goal of assisting in building the next generation of computational scientists using current and emerging high-end computing resources to take on the most demanding scientific challenges of tomorrow, and are seeking to grow our current postdoctoral fellowship program and develop the next generation computational science workforce with strong expertise in individual science domains, as well as expertise in the programming models needed for the development of methods and their implementation on state of the art, high-end computational resources.A Distinguished Postdoctoral Associate position in Computational Nuclear Physics is available immediately for anyone passionate about and capable of performing leading-edge computational nuclear physics research and development. Priorities include the development of methodologies and their efficient massively parallel implementation on current state-of-the-art accelerated computer architectures, as well as their application on large scientific challenge problems.You will be mentored and teamed with staff in the Scientific Computing Group in the OLCF. They will collaborate with leading computer and computational scientists at ORNL in the development and application of new computational techniques specifically targeted at modeling atomic nuclei using the NUCCOR many-body software supporting the nuclear physics mission of the DOE Office of Science.

Major Duties/Responsibilities:
Work closely with ORNL researchers in using the resources of the OLCF effectively and efficiently, including: Developing and porting of scalable science applications and algorithms for OLCF and other leadership computers. Debugging and tuning applications for high performance. Applying large-scale computational methodologies to meet scientific objectives. Conduct research and report results in journal publications, conference papers and technical manuals.

Qualifications Required:
Basic Qualifications: Ph.D. degree in a Computational Nuclear Physics or related disciplinePreferred Qualifications: Experience with one or more prominent computational science software packages is highly desirable. Familiar with common scientific programming languages such as C/C++ and fortran, and have experience with or interested in CUDA, OpenMP, and OpenACC compiler directives, vectorization, MPI, and one-sided asynchronous programming models. Experience in heterogeneous computing, developing and debugging massively parallel algorithms and code performance profiling is desirable. In addition, you should have interest in application development techniques (programming models, algorithms, software) at scale (large processor counts).Additional Information:Applicants cannot have received their Ph.D. more than five years prior to the date of application must complete all degree requirements before starting their appointment. Certain exceptions may be considered. This appointment will initially be for 24 months with a possibility of an extension of up to 12 months. Initial appointments and extensions are subject to performance and availability of funding.
