Full Time :
The appointment will be on UCL Grade 7. The salary range will be £32,375 to £39,132 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.
The successful candidate will join a very active inter-disciplinary group at the Centre for Computational Science, working on projects in fields ranging from condensed matter physics and chemistry to life sciences and medicine. The research will involve close collaboration with other personnel at CCS, across UCL, and within a number of international collaborations.
The project will involve development, deployment and scientific application of high performance parallel lattice-Boltzmann codes in the context of simulation of blood flow and intravascular colloidal therapeutic agents in biological porous media, in order to be able to run these codes on a range of evolving petascale and ultimately exascale architectures. The appointee will work primarily on very large scale scientific applications of HemeLB, an exceptionally fast lattice-Boltzmann code for the simulation of blood flow in support of clinical decision making and physiological research. In addition, our LB3D code will also form the focus of some attention in support of a currnt EPSRC funded project on biocolloids.
The postholder will be expected to engage closely in the development of software within these projects, and with the supporting tools and services under concurrent development, that will facilitate efficient deployment of HemeLB and LB3D on leading petascale resources over the next three to four years.
The position is funded for a period of two years in the first instance. Start date will be as soon as possible.
The successful applicant will have very substantial experience of the use of lattice-Boltzmann methods within a high performance computing environment. He/she must also have experience of high performance visualisation. A proven ability to programme large scale parallel applications is essential. The appointee should have (or be about to obtain) a PhD in physics, applied mathematics, computational engineering or computer science and a proven ability to work as a member of a team.
Please note, appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment will be at research assistant Grade 6 (salary £25,504 – £27,047 per annum) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis.
