Job title Associate Research Fellow Job reference P41934 Date posted 02/06/2011 Application closing date 04/07/2011 Location Exeter Salary £24,370 - £26,629 per annum Package Generous holiday allowances, flexible working, pension scheme, car lease scheme Job category/type Research Job description College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences Available from July 2011 for a fixed term period of 36 months The College wishes to recruit a Postdoctoral Researcher to work on developing numerical models of the atmosphere as part of the international ICOMEX consortium. The consortium comprises groups from Germany, France, Japan and USA developing models based on icosahedral grids; a key aim is to improve the ability of the models to exploit massively parallel computing architectures with hundreds of thousands of processors. The work at Exeter, led by Prof. John Thuburn, will focus on elliptic solvers for implicit time integration, and development of an efficient internal postprocessing package. The post will involve mathematically formulating the new developments, implementation on a parallel computer, testing and analysis of parallel efficiency and scaling, and, for the implicit time scheme, detailed comparison against an equivalent explicit time integration scheme. The successful applicant will possess a relevant PhD and be able to demonstrate knowledge of the discipline, research methods, and techniques required by the project. The ideal applicant will have experience of developing numerical methods, and/or applying them to problems in fluid dynamics or geophysics, and, in particular, parallel programming. The successful applicant will have excellent communication skills, both orally and in writing, including the preparation of results for publication, and will spend time visiting the international collaborators.
