The successful candidate will have the opportunity to design these solutions in collaboration with Dr Bush and other developers of the various codes. The postholder will be expected to implement the design correctly and efficiently, to document and publish their work in an appropriate manner, and to be an active and engaged member of the wider OeRC scientific computing group. Thus the main duty will be as a scientific programmer within a collaborative team. As such the postholder will not only need to have strong programming abilities, they will also need to be able to explain their ideas to collaborators, and will be expected to visit the other sites involved in the project on a regular basis. As part of the post, access to large scale computing facilities will be provided, including the UK’s national machine ARCHER www.archer.ac.uk and Oxford’s central HPC facility ARC www.arc.ox.ac.uk. The postholder will also have opportunities to present their work both nationally and internationally, and to interact with other HPC groups, and there may also be opportunities to work with groups using the software which has been developed at experimental facilities such as Diamond www.diamond.ac.uk and ITER www.iter.org.
