Knowledge of storage sub-systems, co-processors (such as the Xeon Phi) and accelerators (such as GPU) would be very desirable. 

The role holder will need to become proficient in a variety of techniques related to developing code for HPC systems: benchmarking, debugging, profiling and optimisation including vectorization of parallel applications. They will be expected to have experience of visualisation techniques for massive parallel computations; of programming on HPC architectures with coprocessors and accelerators.
