Postdoc/software engineer positions within TREX SISSA Center of Excellence in Exascale Computing

We invite applications for two postdocs and one temporary software engineer positions within the newly funded European Center of Excellence TREX – “Targeting Real chemical accuracy at the EXascale”, which will commence its activities in October 2020. Hiring will start in October and continue for about one year.
TREX federates European scientists, HPC stakeholders, and SMEs, to develop and apply quantum mechanical simulations in the framework of quantum Monte Carlo. This methodology encompasses various techniques at the high-end in the accuracy ladder of electronic structure approaches and is uniquely positioned to fully exploit the massive parallelism of the upcoming exascale architectures. A main focus will be the development of a user-friendly and open-source software platform in the domain of stochastic quantum chemistry simulations, which will enable the convergence of high-performance and high-throughput computing.
Postdoc candidates should have a PhD in chemistry, physics, or a closely related field, with a good understanding of methods in quantum chemistry or condensed matter physics, and a strong interest in method and software development. Software engineers should have a strong background in high performance computing and, preferably, some knowledge of quantum mechanics.
Interested candidates should send their CVs and at least two reference letters (sent directly by their advisors or main scientific/technical collaborators) to:
Prof. Sandro Sorella and Dr. Saverio Moroni, SISSA, Trieste, Italy, [javascript protected email address] and
