Job Description

The Data, Analysis and Visualization group in NREL’s Computational Science Center has an immediate opening for a Postdoctoral Computational Scientist to pursue a cross-disciplinary research project in scientific visualization with an emphasis in visual analytics and knowledge discovery in large-scale computational data.

The successful candidate will help to develop visualization-based software to model and analyze complex integrated energy systems.

The candidate will integrate these software tools with scientific and engineering workflows for decision support and data analysis. These workflows will include the use of state-of-the-art high-performance parallel computing (HPC) and visualization facilities. The candidate will evaluate and communicate results through written research reports for publication and presentation at seminars, will participate in group meetings and seminars, and will assist in developing grant proposals for new research directions.


Required Education, Experience, and Skills

Must be a recent PhD graduate within the last three years.


Preferred Qualifications

The ideal candidate will bring a solid background in scientific visualization, including a working understanding of visual analytics, human-computer interaction, and high-dimensional data visualization techniques. The candidate should be willing to work in an interdisciplinary field, together with computer scientists, policy analysts, and engineers. The candidate will possess strong programming and algorithm developments skills and have programming experience in one or more HPC programming languages (i.e., Python, C++,…). In addition, the ideal candidate will be fluent in modern OpenGL programming.
