CSCS is leading an effort to develop HPC libraries and applications for heterogeneous HPC platforms. This work involves close collaboration with domain scientists and working on cutting edge HPC technologies, to ensure that scientists will be able to fully utilize HPC systems based on many-core architectures. To this end, CSCS has several positions open at our office at ETH in Zurich for Scientific Software Developers.
In this role you will develop software libraries for scientific computing, specifically performance-portable C++ libraries for multi-core and many-core HPC architectures. With your technical expertise, you will design and optimize these libraries and assist domain scientists with the integration of these libraries into their applications. Taking initiative to advance the state-of-the-art in computational science, to explore novel technologies and to acquire broad and up-to-date HPC skills is valued. The positions are funded by a project, so we can offer two-year contracts for the length of the project. The positions will be at ETH Zurich, with regular travel to CSCS offices in Lugano. The starting date is as soon as possible.
You have a sound knowledge of computer science, enthusiasm for software development and a strong working knowledge of C++, our main development language. This job will involve close collaboration with domain scientists, so strong interpersonal and communication skills are essential alongside your ability to collaborate with research teams from different fields. You should have a Master in computer science, mathematics or a related scientific discipline. Excellent command of spoken and written English (our official working language) and enthusiasm to work in an international environment are a must.
