What You Will Do:
Develop software in C++, related to one or more of the following fields:
Partitioned Global Address Space programming models
Asynchronous Task-Based Runtimes
Parallel Discrete Event Simulations
Support applications of the software to HPC in both research and production environments.
Analyze the performance of the software to help identify performance bottlenecks.
Design and develop techniques and algorithms to improve the performance of the software across multiple application domains.
Maintain, release, and support the software for broad use in the scientific and engineering community.
Document work and results in the form of technical reports, journal papers and conference proceedings.
What is Required:
Bachelor's degree in Computer Science (or a related field), or equivalent experience.
A minimum of 5 years of relevant experience following the Bachelor's degree or its equivalent experience.
Experience implementing high-quality software in C++, in the field of High Performance Computing (HPC).
Parallel programming in HPC applications and/or middleware using MPI, CUDA or a PGAS model.
Demonstrated mastery of advanced features of C++11 and newer.
Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
Experience with design and implementation of applications using, or middleware implementing, one or more the following:
Partitioned Global Address Space (PGAS) programming models
Asynchronous Task-Based Runtimes
Parallel Discrete Event Simulations
Established track record of delivering production-quality software, or design experience in programming languages or programming models.
Experience with C++ template metaprogramming.
Proven consensus-builder in a distributed, collaborative environment.
The posting shall remain open until the position is filled.
This is a full-time, 5 year, term appointment with the possibility of conversion to Career appointment based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds and ongoing operational needs.

In the world of science, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) is synonymous with excellence. Thirteen scientists associated with Berkeley Lab have won the Nobel Prize. Fifty-seven Lab scientists are members of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), one of the highest honors for a scientist in the United States. Thirteen of our scientists have won the National Medal of Science, our nation's highest award for lifetime achievement in fields of scientific research. Eighteen of our engineers have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, and three of our scientists have been elected into the Institute of Medicine. In addition, Berkeley Lab has trained thousands of university science and engineering students who are advancing technological innovations across the nation and around the world. Berkeley Lab is a member of the national laboratory system supported by the U.S. Department of Energy through its Office of Science. It is managed by the University of California (UC) and is charged with conducting unclassified research across a wide range of scientific disciplines. Located on a 200-acre site in the hills above the UC Berkeley campus that offers spectacular... views of the San Francisco Bay, Berkeley Lab employs approximately 4,200 scientists, engineers, support staff and students. Its budget for 2011 is $735 million, with an additional $101 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, for a total of $836 million. A recent study estimates the Laboratory's overall economic impact through direct, indirect and induced spending on the nine counties that make up the San Francisco Bay Area to be nearly $700 million annually. The Lab was also responsible for creating 5,600 jobs locally and 12,000 nationally. The overall economic impact on the national economy is estimated at $1.6 billion a year. Technologies developed at Berkeley Lab have generated billions of dollars in revenues, and thousands of jobs. Savings as a result of Berkeley Lab developments in lighting and windows, and other energy-efficient technologies, have also been in the billions of dollars. Berkeley Lab was founded in 1931 by Ernest Orlando Lawrence, a UC Berkeley physicist who won the 1939 Nobel Prize in physics for his invention of the cyclotron, a circular particle accelerator that opened the door to high-energy physics. It was Lawrence's belief that scientific research is best done through teams of individuals with different fields of expertise, working together. His teamwork concept is a Berkeley Lab legacy that continues today.
