Details of the offer

Requisition Id2584 Purpose Oak Ridge National Laboratorys Computing and Computational Sciences Directorate conducts state:of:the:art research and development in computer and computational sciences in support of DOEs missions and programs. We develop and deploy leading edge computing and information technology capabilities to keep computational sciences at a level comparable to experimental sciences in the pursuit of scientific discovery and technical innovation.

The Computational Engineering and Energy Sciences Group is seeking postdoctoral scientists to aid in the development and application of parallel computer simulation codes for multiphase and reacting flows.

Major duties/responsibilities
The candidate will be expected to contribute to the development of algorithms and software for the simulation of chemical reacting flows for applications such as pyrolysis, combustion, chemical vapor deposition and material synthesis. The candidate will have the opportunity to exercise the software using the latest HPC architectures such as the OLCF systems and publish the results. Candidate will also have the opportunity to use generic programming techniques for developing performance portable software modules suitable for modern architectures such as graphics processing unit (GPU) and many:core processors. Specific responsibilities include the application of model reduction, stiffness reduction and uncertainty quantification techniques to couple detailed transport and kinetic models with reacting flow software. The candidate will also be expected to collaborate with an interdisciplinary team composed of computational and computer scientists.

Basic Qualifications:


Ph.D. in a relevant scientific discipline with a Mechanical, Aerospace or Chemical Engineering degree.

Extensive experience in the development and application of software tools for chemical kinetics and model reduction.
Preferred Qualifications:


Experience with C++, generic programming and scripting languages

Experience with parallel programming for scientific computing

Experience conducting simulations using large scale HPC systems

Experience with open source packages, such as OpenFOAM and Cantera

Experience with numerical solvers, such as Sundials and PetSc

Parallel algorithm and software development, including message:passing (MPI) and programming models for multicore and GPU architectures (OpenMP, CUDA)


Excellent interpersonal skills, oral and written communication skills, organization skills and strong personal motivation are necessary.
Additional Information:

Applicants cannot have received the most recent degree more than five years prior to the date of application and must complete all degree requirements before starting their appointment.
