Research Programmer - National Center for Supercomputing Applications (V1800003)
The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign seeks a Research Programmer.
Duties: This position provides computational research programming support and training for industrial users in the use and development of programs for computational modeling and simulation. Specific areas of focus are finite element analysis and computational fluid dynamics as they apply to manufacturing and manufacturing processes, to include the design or redesign of processes. Frequent travel involving presentations and training for the users will be required. The ability to listen, understand, and respond to specific user requirements is critical. This will include helping users to design custom solutions to their problems. The ability to interact and communicate effectively with users, collaborators, and co-workers is a necessity.
Key Responsibilities: Develop and refine techniques, software, and training for computational modeling and simulation by industrial users. Provide computational research programming training and consultation to industrial users. Make technical recommendations on networks, software choice and configuration, hardware choice and configuration, user policies, security procedures, and administration procedures. Analyze and solve problems related to industrial partner use of hardware and software for high-performance computing. Analysis requires an understanding of the functionality, capabilities, and interactions of major elements of the computing environment and of software for engineering applications. Evaluate, install, port and support various software on a variety of platforms. Create and maintain user-friendly environments for industrial users. Coordinate workshops, institutes, and seminars. Review requests for computational resources from industrial researchers. Represent NCSA at key meetings. Frequent travel to partner facilities and other locations required.
Requirements: BS degree in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Civil Engineering or related field. Alternative degree fields may be considered/accepted if accompanied by equivalent experience (depending on nature and depth of experience as it relates to current technologies).
Two (2) years experience which include: two (2) years in parallel computing and HPC including using Linux systems, batch scripting, queue systems, one (1) year of industrial experience including customer technical support, engineering consulting, turn-key problem solving, writing proposals with statement of work (SOW), and budgeting. Demonstrated experience working both independently and with large multidisciplinary teams. Oral and written communications experience. Experience must also include work in one or more of the following engineering software and modeling areas: various FEA or CFD codes, particularly: Abaqus, Ansys, Fluent, Star-CCM+, COMSOL, OpenFOAM, and their pre and post processing tools. Experience with generating structured and unstructured meshes using grid generation packages such as Pointwise/Gridgen, Ansys ICEM CFD, HyperMesh. Programming experience in FORTRAN, C, C++, and Matlab. Courses completed successfully in the following areas: Fluid Mechanics, Heat Transfer, Computational Fluid Mechanics, Engineering Applications of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Optimization in Engineering Design, and Thermodynamics of Materials. Courses may be at the undergraduate level. Full-time. To apply: please create your candidate profile at http://jobs.illinois.edu and upload your cover letter and CV/resume to Search #V1800xxx.
