Scientific software engineer position

SISSA, the International School for Advanced Studies in Trieste, in collaboration with the EU MaX Centre of Excellence for Supercomputing Applications , the Quantum ESPRESSO Foundation, and the Eurotech and NVIDIA Corporations, is seeking a scientific software engineer able and willing to work on the port of the Quantum ESPRESSO suite of computer codes to accelerated heterogeneous architectures based on GPUs.

A two-year contract is being offered with wages proportionate to the successful candidate’s prior experience, including good-standard public health insurance. The successful candidate will work in a lively group based at SISSA with regular contacts with the NVIDIA Corporation, including a training internship at their headquarters in Santa Clara (CA), and frequent visits to the CINECA supercomputing centre in Bologna. Applications from particularly motivated individuals will be considered, even in the lack of specific prior experience with GPUs.

For further enquiries and/or to send a manifestation of interest, including a CV and a letter of motivations, please write to foundation@quantum-espresso.org specifying “GPU@QE” (without quotation marks) in the subject line.
