HPC Scientist “Agent-Based Modeling” (f/m/d)
Reference WA 34/20
The Supercomputing Department of the Zuse Institute Berlin (ZIB) needs to fill the temporary position for one year - with the option of extension subject to the approval of further funding.
The applicant will join an interdisciplinary project team of mathematicians, computer scientists, theoretical biologists and HPC experts at ZIB, TUB and HUB. The project aims to build efficient processing pipelines using agent-based modeling methods among others to predict the complex dynamics of socio-economic phenomena at different geographical levels. One focus is the SARS-CoV-2 infection dynamics modeled by mobile interacting agents (persons) and the evaluation of the impact of different external conditions due to changes in regulations. The applicant will contribute to new methodological developments and improves existing implementations to achieve optimal performance and predictive power using HPC resources like the HLRN-IV system “Lise” at ZIB.
a university degree in computer science or a related field,
an excellent technical background on parallel computer architectures (manycore processors, high-performance interconnects, memory hierarchies, and storage systems)
expertise in parallel programming models (SIMD, multi-threading, MPI), desirable also for heterogeneous platforms,
good programming skills in C/C++, Python, and Java,
a basic understanding of parallel file systems (e.g. Lustre) for optimal use,
highly desirable is a background in theory and implementation of agent-based modeling methods,
desirable are experiences in runtime profiling and the use of performance analysis tools,
a strong focus on self-responsibility, pro-activity, the ability to work in a team and creativity.
What we offer:
a dynamic and state-of-the-art working environment and a family-friendly working atmosphere,
a future-proof workplace with a diverse area of responsibility,
training and courses to develop and improve personal skills,
additional pension scheme (VBL),
30 days annual leave, flexible working hours (flexi time),
payment in accordance with TV-L (Collective Agreement for the Public Service of the federal states), taking into account the relevant professional experience and annual special payment,
discounted use of the cafeterias and the sports activities offered by the Freie Universität Berlin (FUB).
How to apply:
The candidature of women is encouraged. Since women are underrepresented in information technology, ZIB is trying to increase the proportion of women in this research area.
Persons with disabilities will be given preference when equally qualified.
Please send your complete application with a tabular CV and the usual documents electronically by 08.06.2020 (date of receipt), quoting reference WA 34/20 to: email@example.com. Please send your documents as PDF only.
