Summary

The key objectives of the CRC rely heavily on numerical modelling, data processing and analysis. Project Z04 will be responsible for: (i) Providing basic support for a multitude of HPC-related issues, such as the porting and tuning of scientific software applications (simulation, processing, analysis, and visualization codes) on the latest supercomputers (at Jülich Supercomputing Centre, JSC, and University of Bonn HPC/A-Lab) throughout the entire CRC; (ii) helping with model development through contributions to the developments in the CRC projects and support the performance optimization of workflows towards big data readiness, linked with Z03 tasks; (iii) model simulation support as a service to the CRC, including provenance tracking and configuration management for reproducibility; and (iv) training of early-career scientists at the interface of geoscience, HPC, and data science in collaboration with Z02 and Z03. Hence, Z04 will help the CRC efficiently conduct its demanding numerical model and simulation experiments, as well as processing and analysis tasks, in a big data context.

Main results in 2022

  • HPC training day for early career DETECT staff
  • HPSC Fall School, week long training on HPC and terrestrial system modelling
  • Deployment of central GitLab DETECT infrastructure
  • Deployment of wiki pages, grid definitions and standards for the entire CRC
  • Contribution to DETECT reference model implementations (grids, configurations, etc.)
  • Support for JSC compute time applications
  • Fortnightly meetings, supporting all HPC matters (compilation, scaling, software environments, etc.)

 

Positions

 

Positions:

 

32 | PostDoc Researcher

in the field of Algorithm engineering, big data analytics and High-Performance Computing (HPC)

 

100% (E13 TV-L) | All positions are fixed-term, initially until December 31st, 2025, with the possibility of an extension

In project Z04, we are looking for a Postdoc researcher at University of Bonn enabling the CRC through a variety of HPC-related tasks with the knowledge of algorithm engineering and additional knowledge in Earth system modelling.

 

Z04 supports the CRC to efficiently conduct its demanding numerical model integrations, but also to process and analyze large data sets. As one example, Z04 provides basic support for HPC-related issues, specifically porting and tuning of scientific software applications on the latest supercomputers at Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) and University of Bonn HPC/A-Lab. Responsible PIs are Dr. Klaus Görgen and Prof. Dr. Petra Mutzel. On July, 1st, Dr. Stefan Poll (JSC) started as PostDoc, working on general HPC support tasks.
