[Met-jobs] Position at Meteo-France research centre

From MARGUINAUD Philippe <philippe.marguinaud@meteo.fr>
To met-jobs@lists.reading.ac.uk
Date Mon, 4 Apr 2016 09:33:48 +0200

Dear met-jobs subscribers,

We would like to announce the following PhD position at the Meteo-France
research centre (CNRM).

Kind Regards,

Philippe Marguinaud

***********************************************************************

Participation in ESCAPE  PROJECT :
Design and implementation of performance simulation software

Duration : 18 months

Applicants are invited for a 18 month post-doctoral position starting on
01/05/2016, or asap after that date,  on the following subject: “Design
and implementation of performance simulation software in the framework
of the participation of Météo-France in the ESCAPE project”.

The deadline for application is 01 April 2016.

Context:
The position will be funded by the ESCAPE project. ESCAPE
(Energy-efficient Scalable Algorithms for Weather Prediction at
Exascale) is a European project designed to  develop world-class,
extreme-scale computing capabilities for European operational numerical
weather prediction (NWP) and future climate models. The biggest
challenge for state-of-the-art NWP arises from the need to simulate
complex physical phenomena within tight production schedules. Existing
extreme-scale application software of weather and climate services is
ill-equipped to adapt to the rapidly evolving hardware. This is
exacerbated by other drivers for hardware development, with processor
arrangements not necessarily optimal for weather and climate
simulations. ESCAPE will attempt to redress this imbalance through
innovation actions that fundamentally reform Earth system modelling.
The goal of this post-doctoral position is to design a set of tools and
libraries to assess  the  time required by different NWP algorithms to
produce the solution (that is a forecast). The development of a full NWP
system is long and should be designed to last for several decades; it is
therefore of utmost importance to make the right choices when designing
 a dynamical core or any other part of a NWP system. The development of
 simulation methods and tools could allow for assessing and comparing
the performances of different prototype algorithms, and eventually
select the most appropriate.

 Ph.D. in computer science, atmospheric sciences, or a French engineer
diploma obtained before the date of the application.
Expertise in C, C++, Unix,  scripting (Perl or Python), system
programming (threads, compilers, etc...),  and high performance computing
Basic knowledge of Fortran
Fluency in English language
Experience of teamwork

Practical information:
The successful applicant will be based at the CNRM (National
Meteorological Research Centre) . The  position will start on the 01 May
2016 for 18 month duration. The gross monthly salary will range between
2000 and 3200 euros before taxes, depending upon qualifications .
Movements are possible, essentially on Reading (UK).

For full consideration, an application letter including a detailed
statement of research interest, along with a curriculum vitae (including
technical experience, publications and conferences, computing skills and
different language practice) and the names, telephone and email address
of 2 referees.

The package should be sent by email before the 01  of April 2016 to:
philippe.marguinaud@meteo.fr
