The Faculty of Mathematics and Physics at Charles University invites applicants for a 1-year postdoctoral researcher position in mixed precision numerical linear algebra and high-performance computing, with possibility of extension.
The position is funded by the US Exascale Computing Project (https://www.exascaleproject.org/), a large consortium focused on the goal of achieving exascale-level computation. In particular, the selected candidate will be associated with the Multiprecision Effort under the "xSDK: Extreme-scale Scientific Software Development Kit" branch of the project.
The project will involve rigorous error analysis and algorithm development. The candidate should ideally have a PhD in computer science, mathematics, or a related field, with background in one or more of the following areas:
*Finite precision analysis
*Sparse iterative solvers
*Parallel numerical linear algebra
The position can begin as early as March 2021, but the start date is flexible. The gross salary for the position is 58,000 CZK per month (approximately 2,200 EUR), which is above the average salary in Prague and is commensurate with living expenses.
The position will remain open until filled, but for full consideration, applications should be submitted by February 28, 2021.
To apply, please send the following to firstname.lastname@example.org:
*PDF or link to PDF of PhD thesis
*In addition, the candidate should arrange for 2 recommendation letters to be sent directly to the same email address.
