We seek a research software engineer within the European High Performance Computing project MICROCARD (www.microcard.eu). MICROCARD develops an exascale application platform for cardiac electrophysiology simulations that is usable for cell-by-cell simulations. The platform will be co-designed by HPC experts, numerical scientists, biomedical engineers, and biomedical scientists.
In collaboration with the partners in the consortium, you will advance and deploy a DevOps toolchain for a production-ready simulation platform for cardiac electrophysiology. In particular, integrating cutting-edge linear preconditioner and solver technology delivered by the numerics experts into the openCARP simulator will be a key task. Moreover, you will advance a web-based system providing simple and secure access to the simulator.
The KIT mission combines the three strategic lines of activity of research, higher education, and innovation. With about 9,300 employees and 26,000 students, KIT is one of the big institutions of research and higher education in the natural sciences and engineering in Europe.
You are an open and ambitious team player motivated to strive for creative and sustainable solutions? We provide a cooperative and communication-oriented environment in the Computational Cardiac Modeling Group at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering. You completed a PhD or Master’s degree in a relevant field?
You have experience in software engineering (C++ and web technologies), care about your work and are motivated to work in a multidisciplinary team, have good communication skills as well as a good command of English?
In the best case, you have experience in some of the following areas: modeling & simulation of cardiac electrophysiology, numerical linear algebra, PETSc, high performance computing, Spack, software design, DevOps, Continuous Integration, software deployment, angular, Flask, ZeroMQ, software containers, research data management, open science.
The position is available from March 2021 and limited to three years (might be extended). The remuneration occurs on the basis of the wage agreement of the civil service in TV-L E14 (PhD) / E13 (M.Sc.). KIT is an equal opportunity employer. Women are especially encouraged to apply. Applicants with disabilities will be preferentially considered if equally qualified.
Application preferably via email until November 30, 2020 to email@example.com with the following documents:
