Description

Postdoctoral Research Assistant in High Performance Computing for CFD

Department of Engineering Science, Oxford Thermofluids Institute, Southwell Building, Osney Mead, Oxford

We are seeking a full-time Research Assistant to join the numerical analysis group research group at the Department of Engineering Science in Osney. The post is funded by Rolls-Royce and is fixed-term to December 2022 with extensions considered, subject to additional funding.

Modern CPUs contain features to improve throughput without increasing clock frequency and power consumption. Such features include vector registers and multiple cache levels. Many of these features, however, are not easily accessible and require a judicious management of operation flow and memory layout. Your role will be to develop a sophisticated and well validated CFD software in collaboration with a large industrial sponsor to expose the performance benefits of modern CPUs. Your tasks will include:

- Conducting independent research into HPC techniques for CFD

- Publishing the results of your research and the research group

- Assist in the supervision of DPhil candidates enrolled on projects aligned with your research

- Assist the group in coordinating publication activities such as guest editing of journals to increase the impact of the research.

You should possess a DPhil in computer science or fluid mechanics and relevant experience in the computation of turbomachinery flows in a research setting, direct experience of modelling and simulation of viscous and inviscid flow, experience of high-performance computing both from a development and a usage point of view. Candidates holding a relevant degree/Masters and working on PhD/DPhil together with relevant experience will be considered at Grade 6 (£29,614 - £35,326 p.a.).

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Prof Luca di Mare (email: luca.dimare@eng.ox.ac.uk)

For more information about working at the Department, see www. eng.ox.ac.uk/about/work-with-us/

Only online applications received before midday on 11th July 2022 can be considered. You will be required to upload a covering letter/supporting statement, including a brief statement of research interests (describing how past experience and future plans fit with the advertised position), CV and the details of two referees as part of your online application.

The Department holds an Athena Swan Bronze award, highlighting its commitment to promoting women in Science, Engineering and Technology.
