We are seeking a Computer Scientist to conduct innovative research and code development in the following areas:

+ High performance numerical linear algebra, including distributed and/or shared memory parallel iterative solvers, multilevel preconditioners, algorithms for multicore/heterogeneous architectures, and development of optimized C\+\+ scientific software libraries

+ Enabling solver technology within computationally challenging advanced simulations such as sophisticated multi\-physics systems, partial\-differential\-equation\-based optimization, and devising solver methodologies that exploit inherent problem structure

+ Development of core solution methodologies in areas such as electromagnetic and magneto\-hydrodynamic simulations, semiconductor device modeling, and computational fluid dynamics\.Work centers on interplay between physics, advanced discretization \(e\.g\., high order\) and resulting matrix\-based properties

On any given day, you may be called on to:

+ Collaborate with the larger research team

+ Develop new ideas

+ Publish in journals and present at national and international venues

+ Develop, improve, and support the Trilinos project \(trilinos\.org\) used to perform the research and deliver the products of the research to Sandia mission applications


+ PhD in mathematics, computer science, or related engineering or science discipline

+ Experience with object\-oriented programming in C\+\+

+ Research experience as evidenced by presentations, technical publications, released software, and/or work with applications


+ Experience utilizing C\+\+ component software libraries for scientific software development

+ Experience in parallel programming such as MPI, OpenMP, CUDA and/or threads

+ University courses or experience with numerical linear algebra

+ University courses or experience with discretization technologies \(e\.g\. finite element methods\)

+ Experience in high\-performance computing on distributed, parallel, and/or other specialized architectures \(e\.g\., Phis, GPUs\)

+ Experience developing or working with packages in the Trilinos project

+ Communication skills appropriate for participating in multi\-disciplinary teams of mathematicians, engineers and computer scientists

+ Interest or experience in the use of advanced object\-oriented software engineering practices and processes \(e\.g\., agile software and test driven development\)

+ Experience working in collaborative software development environments

+ Desire to help develop, improve, and support the Trilinos project

+ Ability to obtain and maintain a Department of Energy security clearance

Department Description:

The Scalable Algorithms Department at Sandia National Laboratories is focused on developing new algorithms and approaches to address the challenges posed by next\-generation computing hardware\. The department intends to use its expertise in applied mathematics and computational science to address these challenges and help define the future of computing\. While mission driven and focused, the Scalable Algorithms Department performs most of its research in the public domain, which affords the top research and development professionals in the department the opportunity to publish in the open literature and effectively team with leaders at other labs, universities, and industry\.

About Sandia:

Sandia National Laboratories is the nations premier science and engineering lab for national security and technology innovation, with teams of specialists focused on cutting\-edge work in a broad array of areas\. Some of the main reasons we love our jobs:

+ Challenging work withamazingimpact that contributes to security, peace, and freedom worldwide

+ Extraordinary co\-workers

+ Some of the best tools, equipment, and research facilities in the world

+ Career advancement and enrichment opportunities

+ Flexible schedules, generous vacations,strongmedical and other benefits, competitive 401k, learning opportunities, relocation assistance and amenities aimed at creating a solid work/life balance\*

\*These benefits vary by job classification\.

Security Clearance:

This position does not currently require a Department of Energy \(DOE\)\-granted security clearance\.

Sandia will conduct a pre\-employment drug testing, and a pre\-employment background review that includes personal reference checks, law enforcement record checks, and employment and education verifications\. Further, employees in New Mexico must pass a U\.S\. Air Force background screen for access to the work site\. Substance abuse or illegal drug use, falsification of information, criminal activity, serious misconduct or other indicators of untrustworthiness can cause access to be denied or terminated, rendering the inability to perform the duties assigned and resulting in termination of employment\.

If hired without a clearance, and one subsequently becomes required or you bid on positions that require a DOE\-granted security clearance, a pre\-processing background review that includes personal reference checks, law enforcement record and credit checks, and employment and education verifications may be conducted prior to a required federal background investigation\. Applicants for DOE\-granted security clearances must be U\.S\. citizens and be able to obtain and maintain the appropriate DOE security clearance as required for the position\.
