Join us! We are looking for new members for EUROfusion Advanced Computing Hub at BSC

CASE members at a recent retreat
We are looking for Researchers and/or Research Engineers in Computers Science, Engineering, Physics or related fields to join the growing team of the EUROfusion Advanced Computing Hub at BSC. The successful candidates will participate in cutting-edge European R&D activities in plasma physics science and fusion technology and become members of this reference performance group in an international working environment. The overall objective of our group is to enhance modelling capabilities in fusion by code development, validation, integration and optimization including the use of advanced HPC techniques. We work closely towards the objectives of EUROfusion, the European fusion research programme for Horizon Europe, in collaboration with Fusion for Energy (F4E), ITER, International Tokamak Physics Activity, and the Spanish national fusion laboratory CIEMAT. At BSC, our group is hosted by the Department of Computer Applications for Science and Engineering (CASE) and is led by ICREA Research Prof. Dr. Mervi Mantsinen.
