Job Description

The Mathematics and Computer Science Division at Argonne National Laboratory has an opening for a software developer in the Exastar Project. The overarching goal of the project is to prepare FLASH, a multiphysics simulation software, for simulating supernovae explosions at exascale. At Argonne the focus is on making the code infrastructure ready for heterogeneity in platforms caused by the presence of accelerators, and integrating the relevant physics solvers with the enhanced infrastructure. The configuration system in FLASH relies upon a python script that parses meta-information about code units in FLASH-specific syntax. Majority of the work in this position will be enhancements to the syntax and the script, and writing other scripts as needed for code transition. The position is a one year term position with an option to extend.

Position Requirements

The candidate must have an undergraduate degree in Computer Science, Math or Engineering. The ideal candidate will have experience with more than one programming language and proficiency in python, and a willingness to learn rapidly on the job. The candidate will be required to communicate and collaborate with researchers scientific disciplines as well as applied mathematicians and software engineers.
