Ref. 15/2019

The successful candidate will be associated with the data-analytics group at the MPCDF (based in Garching near Munich, Germany) and will work in close collaboration with scientists of various Max Planck Institutes on data-analytics projects, especially in the fields of machine learning and deep learning. The main focus will be on developing and optimizing machine-learning solutions for high-performance computing (HPC) systems.

The applicant should hold a PhD in Physics, applied Mathematics, Computer Science or a similar subject and have a strong background in developing and optimizing HPC software. Experience in applied machine learning, deep learning, and at least one of the major software frameworks (e.g. Tensorflow, Pytorch) is required. Familiarity with the concepts and applications of distributed deep learning or with the Apache Spark platform is considered a major plus.  

We offer the opportunity to work on cutting-edge high-performance data-analytics projects at the interface between Data Science and High Performance Computing in close collaboration with leading domain scientists of various Max-Planck institutes, e.g. in materials and bio sciences, theoretical chemistry, polymer research, astrophysics, plasma physics, and particle physics.

The full time position starts as soon as possible and is initially limited for a maximum period of three years. Salary will be based on experience according to the German public pay scale (TVöD).

Please find more information on For further questions, please contact Dr. Markus Rampp ().
