We are a world class research-intensive university. We deliver teaching and learning of the highest quality. We play a leading role in economic, social and cultural development of the North East of England. Attracting and retaining high-calibre people is fundamental to our continued success.
Applications are invited for a Research Assistant/Associate in the EPSRC ExCALIBUR project: Turbulence at the Exascale: Application to Wind Energy, Green Aviation, Air Quality and Net-zero Combustion. The project is a collaboration led by Imperial College London together with the universities of Warwick, Cambridge, Newcastle, Southampton and the STFC-Laboratories. Project partners include Intel, Nvidia, Siemens, Renuda UK, Fosters and Partners, and UCL. The ambition of the project is to prepare the large-scale production numerical simulation software applications of the UK Turbulence Consortium (UKTC) and the UK Consortium on Turbulent Reacting Flows (UKCTRF) for utilising upcoming exascale computing systems. The aim is on advancing the capabilities of these codes both in terms of performance portability for massively parallel heterogeneous systems and applying them to achieve a number of key grand challenge problems in wind energy generation, green aviation, air quality leading to reach UKs net-zero combustion goals.
This is a full time, fixed term contract for 30 months or until 30 November 2024.
