Position Summary:

Berkeley Lab's Computational Cosmology Center is looking for a postdoctoral scholar to join us in working on a Department of Energy Exascale Computing Project. We seek candidates with a PhD in astronomy, physics, applied mathematics, computer science or related field and experience in high-performance computing.  The successful candidate will contribute to the further development of the adaptive mesh multi-physics Nyx code, and have access to some of the world-leading supercomputers including Cori (Berkeley/NERSC), Theta (Argonne/ALCF) and Summit (Oak Ridge/OLCF). Berkeley Lab is a member of several sky surveys, including eBOSS, DESI, DES and LSST, and is involved in CMB experiments.

Candidates with strong computing backgrounds but no experience in cosmology, as well as those with experience carrying out cosmological simulations, are encouraged to apply.  The successful candidate will have the opportunity to do research related to the Lyman-alpha forest, clusters of galaxies, or weak gravitational lensing in addition to work on physics model development, parallel scalability and performance optimization.
