HIGH PERFORMANCE COMPUTING CENTER STUTTGART (HLRS)
The High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) is the first German supercomputing centre and represents a founding member of the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing. It operates one of the fastest supercomputing systems world-wide and offers services as well as support in the domain of High Performance Computing to users from academia, research, but also industry. HLRS is one of the world leading research institutions in the area of supercomputing, data analytics as well as cloud computing and participates in the cluster of excellence on simulation technologies. Accordingly, HLRS targets innovative research and solution-centric technology development through award-winning national and international projects.
For the development of cutting-edge solutions in the domain of cloud computing and HPC infrastructures, we offer a vacant position as Software Engineer, HLRS_12_2020, (Researcher TV-L 13) within the European research project SODALITE. SODALITE addresses software-defined, application-specific infrastructures (e.g. Cloud and HPC) to provide application developers and infrastructure operators with tools that (i) help to abstract their application and infrastructure requirements; (ii) enable simpler and faster development, deployment, operation, and execution of heterogeneous applications; (iii) focus on performance, quality, manageability, and reliability of the applications and infrastructures (e.g. via monitoring and dynamic workflow optimizations).
The position also includes the possibility to pursue a doctoral degree (PhD), an opportunity explicitly supported by HLRS.
The applicant will become a member of the department “Service Management and Business Processes” (SANE), working as part of an international team focusing on the interface between application developer and infrastructure provider. Specifically, the technical work comprises batch-systems and cloud scheduler, in heterogeneous and combined environments such as Clouds and HPC. This also includes establishing means for data transfer and management, as well as application monitoring. Furthermore, you will apply your project management expertise to steer the work and monitor its progress towards the defined goals. In this context, you will represent HLRS at internal and external meetings with, for instance, the European Commission, and write scientific and technical reports.
The SANE department combines research with agile management methods, meaning that teaching and student supervision are not parts of daily business.
Ideal applicants additionally offer:
The contract is restricted for the duration of the project according to the German law (WissZeitVG), although HLRS typically advocates for a contract extension. The salary is determined by the regulations for public servants, specifically TV-L.
