Researcher - Portability for HPC Applications (Experienced)

Albuquerque, NM

The Scalable Algorithms Department in the Center for Computing Research at Sandia National Labs is seeking scientists to conduct cutting\-edge research and development \(R&D\) in parallel algorithms and programming models for next\-generation high performance computing \(HPC\) architectures such as Intel Knights Landing \(KNL\) and NVIDIA Pascal GPU\. The goal of this R&D is to provide a breadth of applications with algorithmic patterns and high quality software that will enable these applications to realize their full performance potential on exascale HPC architectures\.

Our ongoing R&D is delivered through Sandias Kokkos library, a C\+\+ programming model that enables development of performance portable HPC applications across a breadth of engineering, scientific, and data analytics domains\. We are at the center of cross\-domain collaborations among HPC application and library development; programming language standards evolution; compiler, runtime, hardware R&D; and national laboratories, universities, and HPC vendors\.

On any given day you may be called on to:

+ Conceive and improve strategies for high\-performance parallel algorithms

+ Collaborate with colleagues across application\-to\-hardware domains

+ Develop and test high quality software

+ Consult with application teams to introduce and develop parallel algorithms

+ Publish in journals and conferences, and present at national and international venues


+ PhD in mathematics, computer science, or related engineering or science discipline

+ Experience developing software in the C\+\+ language, including the use of templates

+ Experience with shared memory parallel programming in CUDA, OpenMP, OpenACC, and/or raw threads

+ Experience with parallel algorithm research and software development for applications and/or mathematical libraries

+ Experience utilizing high\-concurrency architectures such as Intel Xeon Phi and NVIDIA GPU for thread\-scalable parallel algorithms

+ Experience working in collaborative software development environments utilizing software configuration management tools and practices

+ Research experience as demonstrated by technical publications or presentations

+ Ability to obtain and maintain a DoE Q clearance


+ Communication and interpersonal skills for effectively working in multi\-disciplinary teams of mathematicians, engineers, and scientists

+ Experience contributing to large and long\-lived applications and/or libraries utilizing software quality engineering practices, processes, and tools

+ Experience teaching parallel programming and parallel algorithms

+ Experience with the parallel pattern of a directed acyclic graph \(DAG\) of tasks

+ Experience with using Sandias Kokkos library

+ Experience using software packages from Sandias Trilinos project
