Postdoc/software engineer positions within TREX SISSA Center of Excellence in Exascale Computing

Postdoc position within TREX SISSA Center of Excellence in Exascale Computing

We invite applications for one postdoc position within the newly funded European Center of Excellence TREX – “Targeting Real chemical accuracy at the EXascale”, which started its activities in October 2020. Hiring for this position will start in May 2021 and will continue for about six months.
TREX federates European scientists, HPC stakeholders, and SMEs, to develop and apply quantum mechanical simulations in the framework of quantum Monte Carlo. This methodology encompasses various techniques at the high-end in the accuracy ladder of electronic structure approaches and is uniquely positioned to fully exploit the massive parallelism of the upcoming exascale architectures. A main focus will be the development of a user-friendly and open-source software platform in the domain of stochastic quantum chemistry simulations, which will enable the convergence of high-performance and high-throughput computing.
Postdoc candidates should have a PhD in chemistry, physics, or a closely related field, with a good understanding of methods in quantum chemistry or condensed matter physics, and a strong interest in method and software development.
Interested candidates should send their CVs and at least two reference letters (sent directly by their advisors or main scientific/technical collaborators) to:
Prof. Sandro Sorella and Dr. Saverio Moroni, SISSA, Trieste, Italy, [javascript protected email address]">[javascript protected email address] and
