The successful candidates will participate in cutting-edge European R&D activities related with the optimization and programming of codes devoted to simulated plasma physics science and fusion technology. They will 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 program 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.
Key duties of the new members include
- Optimizing and porting scientific codes in the field of fusion to new computer architectures
- Skills in the programming of GPUs, (OpenACC and/or CUDA environments).
