Dear colleagues,

We are looking for a Research Associate (postdoc) to join the
Firedrake core development team at Imperial. The Firedrake project
brings a radical new approach to simulation software development.
Instead of painstakingly hand-coding highly sophisticated algorithms
one PhD at a  time, Firedrake models the simulation creation process
as a sequence of mathematical abstractions and develops specialised
compilers to automatically translate from one to the next, thereby
automatically generating high performance parallel code from a
high-level specification of the original mathematical problem.

This position represents the opportunity for a computational scientist
to create new abstractions and implementations resulting in new
simulation capability with immediate impact over a diverse user base.
The successful candidate will play an important role in the heart of
the Firedrake project while enjoying considerable freedom to develop
their own programme of computational science research based around the
further development of Firedrake.

For further details, see

Closing date is the 29th July 2018.

For informal enquiries, please contact David Ham
<david.ham at imperial.ac.uk>.
