OFFER DESCRIPTION

Title: High-Performance Parallel Computing for Molecular Dynamics Simulation

Summary:

This call looks for researchers interested in working on the parallelization of Molecular Dynamics problems on High-Performance CPU-GPU Clusters. Accurate theoretical Collision Cross Section (CCS) calculations for large biomolecules such as proteins and protein aggregates are highly computationally demanding. Scientists at CCES have recently created a new and very efficient code for CCS (HPCCS) using HPC technology. Nevertheless, the use of HPCCS for very large protein assemblies is still limited. This project proposes an extension of HPCCS using a novel HPC programming model to handle much larger biomolecular systems.

Duration:

2 years with possible extension.

Benefits:

The selected candidate will receive a FAPESP Postdoctoral Scholarship of R$ 7.373,10 per month (tax-free) and a Research Support Fund equivalent to 15% of the annual scholarship amount to meet unforeseen expenses directly related to the research activity. A health plan is available from UNICAMP's School of Medicine. Remote work is allowed until the end of the pandemic.

Submission:

Applications must be written in English and include a CV, a cover letter describing the experience/motivation, and contact information for 3 references. Virtual interviews will be organized with qualified candidates. Use the following LINK for the submission and apply by Mar 30th, 2021.

Researchers involved:

Guido Araujo and Munir Skaf

Candidate profile:

The ideal candidate for this position should have a Ph.D. in Computer Science/Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanics, Physics or Chemistry, a good background in High-Performance Computing (HPC) and Parallel Programming, and strong programming skills in OpenMP, PThreads, or MPI. Knowledge of Computational Chemistry and Molecular Dynamics will be considered a plus.
