Applications are invited for a Research Associate position in the department of Aeronautics at Imperial College London. The role will involve developing PyFR (www.pyfr.org), an opensource next-generation fluid flow solver that is designed to target various hardware platforms – including clusters of multi-core CPUs, Nvidia GPUs, Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessors, and AMD GPUs – all from a single Python codebase.
PyFR is being developed to solve a range of currently intractable fluid flow problems, associated with the design of various systems, including aircraft, F1 racing cars, and wind turbines.
The Research Associate will form part of a highly motivated team. There will be significant opportunities for travel, and for close interaction with world leading academic/industrial project partners in both the UK and the USA.
Candidates should be highly motivated and have (or expect to obtain) a PhD in a mathematical/computational discipline (Physics, Mathematics, Aeronautics, Computing etc.) from a world leading institution. The ideal candidate will have experience of:
- Programming in Python, C++, CUDA, OpenCL, OpenMP
- Parallel programming with MPI
- The field of computational fluid dynamics
