Postdoctoral Research Associate / Research Associate in Computer Science

Durham University
Durham, United Kingdom
£29,605 - £44,263 per annum

The Role

Applications are invited for a Research Associate or Postdoctoral Research Associate to join our core software development team led by Prof Tobias Weinzierl. We particularly want to encourage candidates with a first degree (BSc or MSc) in sciences who consider staying in academia yet have a liking for software development, or PhDs who found themselves enjoying software development more than other aspects of academic live throughout their studies. Flexible working arrangements are available.

In close collaboration with the PI, the applicant will identify tasks and software components that are mission-critical for the underlying research (such as components which consume too much compute time and need to be ported to GPUs, third-party components that should be coupled, improved postprocessing scripts, or support for novel input file formats for new experiments) and implement these software blocks independently. The applicant will be embedded into a team of researchers, all contributing multiple software building blocks to the overall compute ecosystem. The delivered software will directly be used by collaboration partners - primarily in their earthquake and gravitational wave simulation codes.

This post is fixed term, as the underlying research programme is time limited and will end on 1st April 2025. After that, the successful applicant will be encouraged to join the central RSE team, subject to post availabilities and performance.
