Applications Engineer for Energy Efficient Clusters per el BSC

The Heterogeneous Architectures group at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) is looking for a highly-motivated engineer to participate in the research of a new class of energy-efficient High-Performance Computing (HPC) systems based on low-power processors. This research is part of the Mont-Blanc project, one of the BSC flagship projects, which has set itself the following objective: to design a new type of computer architecture capable of setting future global HPC standards that will deliver Exascale performance while using 15 to 30 times less energy. This research is having a big media impact and important recognition in the research community:

In the context of the MontBlanc project we are deploying a number of prototype clusters built from developer kits featuring a wide range of ARM-based SoC processors. These prototypes serve as driving vehicles for software development and performance benchmarking for the next generation of energy-efficient high performance and data center systems.

The successful candidate will join an interdisciplinary team to carry out the following tasks:
  • Porting of cutting-edge scientific applications in the areas of earth and life sciences to the different prototype clusters
  • Porting of the middleware of the project to these platforms
  • Performance analysis of the applications running on the prototype clusters. This includes profiling and identification of bottlenecks
  • Optimization of the applications for the prototype clusters. This includes the exploration of different parallelization approaches and the use of hardware accelerators such as GPUs

These tasks will be carried out in the context of the MontBlanc and Severo Ochoa projects. The successful candidate is expected to show initiative and strong interpersonal skills to interact with both hardware and software researchers and engineers in a highly interdisciplinary environment. The contract will be temporary.

  • At least BSc in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or equivalent. BSc in Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology or equivalent are also considered for candidates with strong computer skills. MSc in these areas is preferred.

Essential Skills
  • Strong knowledge of C, C++, Fortran and MPI
  • Strong debugging and problem solving skills
  • Strong software engineering skills including knowledge about data structures and algorithms
  • Strong English communication skills

Desirable Skills
  • Experience with OpenMP, CUDA, OpenCL and script languages such as shell and Python
  • Experience with network file systems, virtualization and grid environments
  • Knowledge of computer architecture and experience in architecture-aware optimization
  • Experience with control version systems
All applicants should submit:
  • Cover letter
  • Curriculum vitae
Deadline: Saturday, 26 April, 2014

Concurs de Projectes de Cooperació al DBMC 2020

El comitè organitzador del DBMC 2020 (Congrés sobre Durabilitat dels Materials en la Construcció), en col·laboració amb el CCD, convoca la primera edició del Concurs Internacional de projectes de Cooperació i Desenvolupament, en el marc de la Conferència de DBMC. L'objectiu principal del concurs és donar suport i reconeixement a la participació activa de la comunitat universitària en projectes de cooperació al desenvolupament en el camp de les tècniques i materials de construcció sostenible.

Aquesta primera edició està oberta a projectes, d'activitats formatives i altres iniciatives relacionades amb la cooperació en països econòmicament vulnerables que contribueixin al desenvolupament sostenible i tinguin en compte la durabilitat dels materials de construcció.
El concurs està obert a tots els estudiants de qualsevol universitat del món, sempre que estiguin associats a una organització sense ànim de lucre.
Els projectes de cooperació que s'hi presentin han de ser duts a terme …

International Sustainability academy (ISA) scholarship program in Germany

During the period of sponsorship until 2022, the ISA offers up to 12 students and professionals every year (see requirements) an 8-month research stay in Hamburg, together with a further month of sponsorship in their home country in order there to complete and customize the results of the research report. 

The primary focus is on the close exchange of know-how amongst the scholarship holders during their individual research work. Further focal points of the program are training courses and internships developed together with the scholarship-holders, visits to Best Practice companies and institutions. Students will be supervised and supported in the subject matter by the ISA and selected universities and research centers.
Deadline: 30 June 2020
