Multiple Ph.D./PostDoc/Research Associate Opportunities in

Big Data Management and Processing at Extreme Scales

Working as part of the DataSpaces Project (dataspaces.org), successful candidates will join an ambitious, multidisciplinary team focused on designing conceptual and software solutions for managing data and data-processing workflows on extreme scale systems including the largest supercomputing systems in the world, and enabling cutting-edge applications in science, engineering and medicine. This project provides the opportunity to interact across several STEM fields, as well as work with national and international collaborators from academia, national laboratories and industry. Specific research topics include programming and autonomic runtime systems for in-situ workflows, scalable and robust multi-tiered object stores for extreme scale systems with deep memory hierarchies, power/performance tradeoffs at extreme scale, and application-level resilience.

Candidates should have a strong background in operating systems and systems programming in C and/or C++, and must be familiar with parallel/distributed programming principles. Previous experience in shared-memory parallelization (OpenMP), distributed-memory parallelization (MPI), and/or GPU-based methods (e.g., CUDA, OpenCL) is a plus.

Application areas include extreme scale data analytics/machine learning/data mining methods on big medical data (e.g., image, gene sequence data), high-energy physics, fusion, oil & gas, and computational chemistry. Applicants with experience in machine learning algorithms, neural networks and computer vision are welcome.
