We are looking a Software Scientist to participate in the development of Elmer finite element software during one year sabbatical of a permanent staff member. Elmer is a Multiphysics simulation code published under open source. It is mainly written in modern Fortran but also C and C++ portions exists. For further information, please see the links below.
You will be joining a group of Elmer developers and high-performance programming specialists. In addition to general development of the code we are participating in various research projects stemming from computational glaciology to the simulation of electrical machines.
The person we are looking for would be ready to get their hands dirty rather quickly and therefore prior experience of large finite element codes, ideally with Elmer, is necessary. In addition to software development the task may include various related tasks such as documentation, verification, testing, optimization, packaging and evangelizing.
The work profile may be tuned based on the background of the person to be focused on numerical methods, high-performance computing, or to some of the main applications fields of Elmer (electromagnetics, structures, fluids). The other team members will help to accommodate different profiles to maximize the marginal utility of the work.
Useful technical keywords include FEM, linear algebra, MPI, OpenMP, Fortran90, C, C++, cmake, Git, LaTex, gdb, docker, launchpad, Matlab, Gmsh, FreeCAD, Salome etc. A suitable educational background for the applicant would be PhD or MSc in mathematics, physics, computer science or computational engineering.
This is a fixed-term position until 31.12.2021. Ideally the work would commence in Jan-Feb 2020.
For more information, please contact Product Manager Peter Råback, +358503305225, peter.raback(a)csc.fi or Development Manager Jussi Heikonen, +358503819808, jussi.heikonen(a)csc.fi
Please send your application by 7.12.2020. In addition to CV you may give pointers to your previous coding work.
