Postdoctoral Research Associate in

Discrete Mathematics and High Performance Computing

Computer Science and Mathematics Division Computer and Computational  
Sciences Directorate Oak Ridge National Laboratory Oak Ridge, Tennessee

Project Description: The Center for Engineering Science & Advanced  
Research (CESAR), in conjunction with the Computational Mathematics    
Group, is seeking qualified candidates for research in the application  
of combinatorial methods and parallel computing to petascale data. The  
project offers the opportunity to improve the efficiency of key graph  
algorithms that underlie heavily-used computational kernels in  
scientific computing by extending selected results from structural  
graph theory.

The opening corresponds to a Postgraduate/Postdoctoral Associate  
position with competitive salary, depending on qualifications.  
Position also offers exceptional benefits including health/life  
insurance, vacation and a 403(b) retirement plan (see http://www.orau.gov/ORISE/edu/ornl/ornl-pdpm/benefits.htm) 
. This is a one year appointment, with the possibility of renewal for  
a second year.

ORNL is a multi-program research facility operated by UT-Battelle for  
the Department of Energy located near the city of Knoxville in eastern  
Tennessee. The area offers a mild climate, low cost of living, great  
opportunities for outdoor activities (e.g. hiking in the Smoky  
Mountains & whitewater rafting), and several exceptional public  
schools systems.

Qualifications:  The successful candidate is expected to have  
completed a Ph.D. or MSc in Computer Science, Mathematics, or a  
closely related field. Exceptional candidates with a Bachelor’s degree  
may also be considered. Experience in large-scale parallel code  
development in at least one of C/C++/Fortran2003 is essential, and a    
background in discrete mathematics (especially graph theory or  
combinatorial scientific computing) is desirable. Strong communication  
skills, the ability to work in a team environment, and a high level of  
accountability are required.

Applicants cannot have received the most recent degree more than five  
years prior to the date of application and must complete all degree  
requirements before starting their appointment.

Technical Questions:  Interested candidates may contact Dr. Blair  
Sullivan, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, P.O. Box 2008, MS-6015, Oak  
Ridge, TN, 37831-6015 or send email to sullivanb at ornl.gov. Please  
reference the position title and number when corresponding about this
