We are a part of the Department of Defense (DoD) High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP) User Productivity Enhancement and Training (PET) initiative. PET enhances the capability and productivity of the HPCMP community through training, collaboration, tool and software development, and technology transfer.

You will join a team of computational experts representing a critical mass of expertise in key areas of support for the HPCMP. These teams provide deep technical expertise in HPC that can be applied to a diverse range of scientific disciplines.

Our teams provide deep technical expertise in HPC that can be applied to a diverse range of scientific disciplines. Sample areas include computational fluid dynamics (CFD); computational structural mechanics (CSM); computational electromagnetics and acoustics (CEA); forces modeling and simulation (FMS); integrated modeling and test environments (IMT); autonomy; high-performance data analytics (HPDA); and physics informed machine learning (ML)/Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Duties may include the following;

  • Software Refactoring to Optimize Performance for Emerging HPC Architectures

  • Emerging Hardware Exploration: Supporting the evaluation of emerging hardware for potential deployment in future HPC systems.

  • Assist project sponsors with scientific research and or development studies

  • Expertise with legacy scientific computing programming languages (e.g., C, C++, Fortran)

  • Experience with Linux on large scale systems.

  • Extensive knowledge of HPC and parallel programming techniques (e.g. MPI, OpenMP), in multiple physical science domains.

  • 4+ years of experience with science or engineering programs

  • Experience with HPC preferred

  • Must be a US citizen and be eligible for a DoD clearance

  • Active DoD Secret clearance preferred

The likely salary range for this position is $106,371 - $177,632, this is not, however, a guarantee of compensation or salary; rather, salary will be set based on experience, geographic location and possibly contractual requirements and could fall outside of this range.
