As part of the iVEC team you will work with a diverse Australian research community to enable them to fully exploit the potential of iVEC’s world-class, high performance computing infrastructure, hosted at the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre and various other Perth iVEC facilities.

Your key responsibilities include designing peta-scale supercomputing simulations and workflows, developing highly-parallel software applications and advising researchers on tools and technologies to enhance their scientific computing capabilities. This will involve collaborative efforts across multiple institutions and research domains, with researchers at all levels of seniority and with varied levels of computational research experience and knowledge. You need progress towards, or completion of, a postgraduate qualification in a scientific or computer science discipline or equivalent. Demonstrated working knowledge of programming models OpenMP and/or MPI and expertise in the support and development of supercomputing applications are required. A proven capacity for high-level problem solving and excellent communication skills with the ability to articulate complex technical concepts to clients with non-technical backgrounds are essential.
