The Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Colorado invites applicants for a 2-year postdoctoral position in stellar convection modeling and numerical technique development. The successful applicant will work closely with Dr. Nick Featherstone and Professor Keith Julien in one or both of these areas.
This position entails:
1. The development and analysis of convection models targeted at understanding solar convective dynamics.
2. Co-Development of Rayleigh convection code. Current development goals include optimization of the OpenMP implementation, development of a hybrid GPU/OpenMP/MPI scheme, and implementation of a sparse linear solve. Rayleigh is a open-source software developed through the Computational Infrastructure for Geodynamics (CIG; https://bit.ly/2J26bQQ). Work in this area will be conducted in close collaboration with CIG.
3. Teaching: During each year, the candidate will teach 1 course per semester (spring/fall) for the department. Specific topics will be up to the Associate Chair and the teaching needs of the department.
Preference will be given to applicants with demonstrated experience in one or more of the following areas:
Computational fluid dynamics
Astro-geophysical fluid dynamics
Sparse linear algebra
Running parallel programs in a remote environment
GPU programming (OpenACC or Cuda)
Curriculum vitae with list of publications, a statement of research interests, a teaching statement, and contact information of at least 3 references should be submitted through the CU Jobs portal at https://jobs.colorado.edu/jobs/JobDetail/?jobId=18210
Position start date will be January 1, 2020.
Questions concerning the position may be sent to Nick Featherstone (firstname.lastname@example.org).
