Jobs @ ICL

  • Post Doctoral Research Associate

    The Innovative Computing Laboratory (ICL) at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville has an opening position for a full-time postdoctoral research associate in the linear algebra group. We invite applicants with fresh PhD degrees, or those who are graduating within 3 months, to apply for this opportunity.

    The position is available immediately. The candidate‚Äôs primary responsibility is to work on the distributed implementation of the Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) on large scale HPC systems with GPUs. This includes performance benchmarking on several systems with different MPI implementations, performance optimizations, profiling, analysis, and developing new features for distributed FFT computation as necessary.

    This project involves several research groups from different institutions across the country. The candidate is expected to conduct collaborative research, (co)-author publications documenting the research outcomes, and present them at top tier journals or conferences.

    The candidate must have an excellent background in modern C++ programming and distributed computing using MPI. Familiarity with performance analysis tools such as TAU is highly desirable. Experience with GPU programming such as CUDA C++, HIP, or SYCL is a plus. The candidate will be responsible for the development and maintenance of high quality open-source numerical software, so familiarity with version control platforms such as GitHub is required.

    Required Education:
    • PhD in computer science or related field. PhD students who are graduating within 3 months are encouraged to apply.
    Required Job Skills:
    • Proficiency in C++ and Python
    • Familiarity with distributed programming using MPI
    • Version control platforms, especially GitHub
    Preferred Job Skills:
    • GPU programming environments such as CUDA, HIP, or SYCL
    • Experience with performance analysis tools such as TAU
    • Excellent oral and written communication
    • Numerical linear algebra
