Computer Scientist - Visualization Liaison Oak Ridge National Lab

 

Job Posting Title:  Computer Scientist - Visualization Liaison

 

Purpose:

The Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Leadership Computing Facility (OLCF) has the charge to develop and apply transformational computational science capabilities in support of advances in our understanding of the physical world.  As a designated User Facility, the OLCF delivers leadership-class computing for science and engineering; focuses on grand-challenge science and engineering applications; procures largest-scale computing systems and develops high-end operational and application software.

The National Center for Computational Sciences (NCCS) in the Computing and Computational Sciences Directorate at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in East Tennessee seeks to hire a Computer Scientist within the Scientific Computing Group to serve as a Visualization Liaison to users of the OLCF computing resources.

With the continuing advances in data acquisition and simulation techniques, increasingly large 3D data sets have to be processed and interactively displayed for real-time visual exploration.  The emphasis of the open position in this context is on the efficient scalable out-of-core and parallel visual data processing of very large spatial and volumetric data sets.

Major Duties/Responsibilities:

The successful candidate will directly interact with several external collaborators and data-set providers, including industrial and academic institutions.  This requires interest not only in graphics related algorithms and data structures but also in the task and data complexity of the targeted application, and collaboration with domain scientists and other institutions.  The work of the Visualization Liaison will often build on other and previously developed techniques, so a strong interest in learning new programming frameworks and 3rd-party code is necessary, in addition to established skills in numerical methods and applied mathematics.

This position provides the opportunity to develop personal research skills and experience and to contribute to the acquisition of new funding in order to develop the visualization axis within the OLCF. 

 

Minimum Qualifications:

This position requires an M.S. in computer science or a related discipline with 2-7 years of relevant experience.  Exposure to parallel programming and distributed systems is required.  Excellent interpersonal skills, oral and written communication skills, organizational skills, and strong personal motivation are necessary.  The demonstrated ability to work in a dynamic, team-oriented environment is required.

Preferred Qualifications:

A PHD and 5+ years of experience preferred.  Established expertise in scientific visualization, interactive computer graphics, immersive technologies, computational geometry, and image processing is desired.  Experience with C/C++, OpenGL, CUDA, scripting languages, MPI programming, high-performance I/O and data movement, and a broad background of visualization software is desired.

Visualization Positions at ORNL

 

We have a serious need for a couple of scientific visualization people ( or more ) here at ORNL.
We’re a user facility so our primary mission is to support DOE’s INCITE program users who utilize Titan.
So I’d characterize the need as that of “production visualization” people rather than visualization research although there is some component of research as well.  We need people who are experienced enough to hit the ground running.  So if you have some good candidates that you know of I could hook them up with our recruiter.   
 
Thanks,
