NLAFET: Postdoc&PhD positions in Parallel Computing for Extreme-Scale Systems

Department of Computing Science at Umea University, Sweden invites excellent candidates to apply for postdoctoral and PhD positions. The successful candidate(s) will join NLAFET, which is one of the high-profile extreme-scale computing projects funded by the European Commission within the recent FET-HPC call under Horizon 2020. NLAFET is coordinated by Umea University with international partners from INRIA (France), University of Manchester and STFC-RAL (UK).

The acronym NLAFET stands for “Parallel Numerical Linear Algebra for Future
Extreme-Scale Systems” ( http://www.nlafet.eu ).

Future extreme-scale supercomputers will be heterogeneous and lead to new and challenging demands for efficient numerical algorithms and parallel software libraries. The aim of NLAFET is to tackle these challenges and ultimately deliver new scalable numerical libraries for fundamental problems in numerical linear algebra, including the solution of dense and sparse systems of equations and eigenvalue problems. Achieving this requires a co-design effort including developing novel algorithms, exploration of advanced scheduling strategies and runtime systems, offline and online autotuning, as well as avoiding communication and synchronization bottlenecks.

The positions will focus on design, implementation, and evaluation of parallel algorithms for matrix kernels and eigenvalue problems with regards to the extreme-scale challenges. The research will be done in close collaboration with recognized researchers and PhD students in the research group as well as with other partners in NLAFET.

Postdoc in structural bioinformatics of GPCRs – Development of GPCR-ModSim

Postdoc opening in structural bioinformatics of GPCRs
Development of GPCR-ModSim, http://gpcr-modsim.org

The platform GPCR-ModSim is one of the first and most complete web-based solutions for the modeling and simulation of GPCRs (see http://gpcr-modsim.org). The GPCR-ModSim project is now part of the Computational and Systems Biology program at the Cell and Molecular Biology department in Uppsala University, one of the most vibrant and dynamic Universities in Europe. Our research on G-protein coupled receptors (see
http://www.icm.uu.se/forskning/csb/aqvist/projekt/membrane-channels/ ) is currently funded by several private and public sources. In particular, the development of GPCR-ModSim is supported by a grant from the Carl Trygger Foundation (Stockholm), and we are looking for a talented postdoc to join this project in the spring 2015. If you have recently finished your PhD (or you are about to in the very next future) in bioinformatics, computer science, computational chemistry or similar disciplines, you are encouraged to send us an application for this position. Simply send a CV and a motivation letter by e-mail to hugo.gutierrez@icm.uu.se.

You should:

  • Have experience in computer simulations and/or protein modeling and/or bioinformatics
  • Have programming skills in Python and be familiar with Unix systems,
    web servers and databases.
  • Be interested in the development and implementation of novel computational methodologies within structural biology and ligand design.
  • Have demonstrated capacity of collaboration and ability for multidisciplinary
    communication.

We offer:

  • A one year, tax-free fixed postdoctoral position, with possibilities to extend our funding.
  • An extensive network of collaborations. We are part of the EU-COST action GLISTEN, which agglutinates the major GPCR research labs and industries in Europe, and maintain several collaborations with top medicinal chemists, structural biologists and pharmacologists in the field (see http://gpcr-modsim.org/publications).
  • A vibrant international environment in one of Europe’s top universities.

Applications or further inquiries are welcome until 31st January to the project leader:
