Advertisement for Project Associate and Research Associate Positions

We invite applications for the positions of Project Associate I, Project Associate II and Research Associate I in a project investigated by Profs. Sathish Vadhiyar (Department of Computational and Data Sciences), Vijay Natarajan (Department of Computer Science and Automation) and PN Vinayachandran (Centre for Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences) in Indian Institute of Science.

The project is related to development of high performance / parallel computing, and visualization strategies and codes for climate modelling applications. The project has the following components.

  1. Scalable high-performance simulations
    • Profiling and benchmarking of parallel applications
    • Parallel I/O methods
    • GPU-based algorithms
  2. Visualization methods
  3. Large-scale climate model studies

Roles and Responsibilities:

Following are the roles and responsibilities for the three positions.

  1. Project Associate I: For research and development on HPC and visualization works.
  2. Project Associate II: For advanced research and development on HPC, visualization and ocean model works depending on skills
  3. Research Associate I: For research and development on all components, and to integrate the overall components of the project into a comprehensive framework and perform advanced scientific studies.

For visualization works, the role includes development of data visualization and data analysis techniques, algorithms for feature extraction, exploration of 3D time-varying data.
