    Open Position: GROMACS project manager

     

    Science for Life Laboratory, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden

     

    GROMACS is one of the most widely used softwares in the field of computational chemistry, and commonly run on everything from laptops and playstations to the largest computers in the world, such as Kei and TITAN. It is also the simulation engine in the Folding@Home project and used as a component in numerous other scientific applications.

    For this opening, we are looking for a project manager to oversee both development and interactions within the multi-national user team, help with organization of workshops and conferences, and not least help establish a modern development strategy for a project comprising close to 100Mb source code and developers in ~10 countries.

    You will work in a research team that is world-leading in the development of algorithms as well as software for molecular simulation. The GROMACS code runs on every single one of the largest supercomputers in the world, and we have close collaborations e.g. with NVIDIA for the development of GPU accelerated high performance computing as well as Cray for the XK6 and RIKEN in Kobe for the Kei computer.

    Depending on interest the position could also include scientific programming (e.g. Cuda coding), and you will get a chance to play with some of the largest computers in the world. We provide a flexible and international work environment, with lots of travel opportunities and a possibility to influence how your job develops. 

     

    Science for Life Laboratory is a new strategic swedish research institute in Stockholm started by the three regional universities (Stockholm Unversity, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, and the Karolinska Institute), which also provides an amazing broader environment for computational life science. 

     

     Interested? Drop a line to professor Erik Lindahl <erik@kth.se> with a CV and tell us a bit about your background!

     

     

    Open Position: Scientific programmer, CUDA & Parallelization

     

    Science for Life Laboratory, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden

     

    GROMACS is one of the most widely used softwares in the field of computational chemistry, and commonly run on everything from laptops and playstations to the largest computers in the world, such as Kei and TITAN. It is also the simulation engine in the Folding@Home project and used as a component in numerous other scientific applications.

    We are currently looking for a world-class scientific programmer who would like to push both GPUs and supercomputer far beyond what is possible today. These are exceptionally challenging programming tasks with synchronization between nodes (using both standard and proprietary high-performance networks) occuring on the sub-millisecond scale over tens of thousands of cores. GROMACS uses both CPU and GPU resources for heterogeneous parallelization, and there are both amazing possibilities and challenges with the next-generation hardware currently being released. You will work with some of the most optimized code you have ever seen (handtuned x86 SIMD assembly, CUDA kernels tweaked for each model, OpenMP as well as MPI parallelization, and soon explicit pthreads), and while the challenges are immense they are resulting on a fantastic transformation of life science, where computers are now just as common as microscopes.

    In a way, your job description is simple: you are going to teach hardware tricks that even the vendor didn't think was possible. You will work in a research team that is world-leading in the development of algorithms as well as software for molecular simulation, which also means you will directly see (and participate in) the fruits of your work for application research. The work will be carried out both locally and with our collaborators at sites like NVIDIA, Oak Ridge (TITAN), RIKEN in Kobe (Kei), not to mention several regional Cray XE6, XK6 and XK7 supercomputers. We provide a flexible and international work environment, with lots of travel opportunities and a possibility to influence how your job develops.
