Job Description

    *PLEASE NOTE*: This is a new, full-time, two-year term position with
    possibility of extension. Initial consideration will be given to
    applications received prior to 4:00 p.m. (MDT) on Friday, September
    26, 2014. Thereafter, applications will be reviewed on an as-needed

    NCAR - Computational and Information Systems Laboratory (CISL)

    Partial relocation costs paid per UCAR's relocation policy

    UCAR/NCAR willnotsponsor a work visa (e.g., H1B, etc.) to fill this

    *BASIC JOB FUNCTION*: Supports and coordinates computer science
    research to enhance the performance, and the rate of performance
    improvement, of key NCAR weather and climate applications on
    multi-core processors and many-core accelerator systems. To this
    end, collaborates with a distributed team of scientists, software
    engineers, and graduate students. The associate scientist interacts
    frequently with several graduate students across multiple research
    topics to ensure that various methodologies and tools remain
    inter-operable and inter-supporting. May communicate results through
    publications and presentations, and through team meetings and
    progress reports.


    Collaborates with computational scientists in the Technology
    Development Division (TDD), CISLs user services and systems staff,
    NCARs community modeling development teams, and graduate-level
    researchers at the University of Colorado to accelerate the rate of
    performance enhancement of specific weather and climate codes on
    multi-/many-core processors. Also interacts with vendors to leverage
    their expertise, and give feedback that will help improve the
    performance of their systems and software on NCARs community codes.

    Supports and coordinates computer science research on one or more of
    the following topics: development or enhancement of application
    profiling tools; refactoring applications algorithmically;
    optimization patterns to achieve high levels of parallelism and
    performance in many-core systems; automated code generation for
    performance portability; and software testing and validation.

    Prepares and disseminates scientific results for papers, progress
    reports, and may give technical presentations at scientific meetings.


    Education and Experience:

      * Education beyond the Bachelor's level in computer science,
        computer engineering, or ? computational science, or a related
        field, or
      * an equivalent of education and experience.
      * Some familiarity with atmospheric and related science desirable.

    Knowledge, Skills and Abilities:

      * Ability to work both independently or collaboratively as a
        member of an interdisciplinary scientific team to solve routine
        and occasionally complex technical problems.

      * Experience mentoring and working with students.

      * Ability to organize, prioritize and coordinate multiple tasks.

      * Solid verbal and written technical communication skills.

      * Expert knowledge of multi-/many-core computer architectures,
        compilers, and supporting libraries. Awareness of recent
        developments in the area of computer architecture and high
        performance computing.

      * Advanced knowledge of performance programming paradigms for high
        performance systems, such as MPI, OpenMP, and OpenACC.

      * Experience using high performance computing environments.

      * Skill in the use and administration of UNIX operating system and
        its variants.

      * Ability to understand and modify code written in Fortran90, C
        and Python.

      * Knowledge of CUDA or OpenCL and familiarity with geoscience
        applications desirable.

    The University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) is
