SDM performs research in scientific data management and analysis for exascale computing and multi-petabyte experimental and simulation datasets. The overarching goal of the group is to enable scientific discoveries through the design, analysis, and development of extreme-scale data management technologies that allow scientists to access their data more efficiently. Members of SDM group work closely with application scientists throughout the DOE Office of Science community (e.g., astronomy, astrophysics, climate change research, fusion research, high energy physics, nuclear science, and life sciences), with faculty and students from universities throughout the world, and with staff in the NERSC production computing facility as well as other DOE Leadership Computing Facilities. Group members have access to leading-edge computing platforms.
What You Will Do:
Contribute to a research team focused on developing storage systems and parallel I/O technologies that affect performance of storing and accessing by scientific applications.
Conduct research involving parallel I/O systems and performance optimization of HPC applications' I/O.
Develop object storage technologies for HPC.
Document work and results in the form of journal papers and conference proceeding papers, and present work and results at scientific meetings.
Collaborate with other computer scientists, applied mathematicians, computational scientists to ensure the resultant technologies are applicable for their respective computational challenges and coding styles.
What is Required:
PhD degree in applied mathematics, computer science, physics, or related fields or equivalent combination of education and experience.
Demonstrated expertise in the implementation and optimizations I/O and storage systems.
Demonstrated experience in working with high-performance computing applications using C/C++, MPI, and I/O libraries, such as HDF5 and MPI-IO.
Demonstrated experience in performance modeling and performance analysis for parallel I/O.
Demonstrated experience in using distributed-memory computing platforms.
Knowledge of C/C++, MPI, HDF5, netCDF, and MPI-IO.
The posting shall remain open until the position is filled.
This is a full time 2 year postdoctoral appointment with the possibility of renewal based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds and ongoing operational needs. You must have less than 4 years paid postdoctoral experience.
Salary will be predetermined based on postdoctoral step rates.
This position is represented by a union for collective bargaining purposes.
This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.
Work will be primarily performed at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, 1 Cyclotron Road, Berkeley, CA.

About Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
In the world of science, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) is synonymous with excellence. Thirteen scientists associated with Berkeley Lab have won the Nobel Prize. Fifty-seven Lab scientists are members of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), one of the highest honors for a scientist in the United States. Thirteen of our scientists have won the National Medal of Science, our nation's highest award for lifetime achievement in fields of scientific research. Eighteen of our engineers have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, and three of our scientists have been elected into the Institute of Medicine. In addition, Berkeley Lab has trained thousands of university science and engineering students who are advancing technological innovations across the nation and around the world. Berkeley Lab is a member of the national laboratory system supported by the U.S. Department of Energy through its Office of Science. It is managed by the University of California (UC) and is charged with conducting unclassified research across a wide range of scientific disciplines. Located on a 200-acre site in the hills above the UC Berkeley campus that offers spectacular... views of the San Francisco Bay, Berkeley Lab employs approximately 4,200 scientists, engineers, support staff and students. Its budget for 2011 is $735 million, with an additional $101 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, for a total of $836 million. A recent study estimates the Laboratory's overall economic impact through direct, indirect and induced spending on the nine counties that make up the San Francisco Bay Area to be nearly $700 million annually. The Lab was also responsible for creating 5,600 jobs locally and 12,000 nationally. The overall economic impact on the national economy is estimated at $1.6 billion a year. Technologies developed at Berkeley Lab have generated billions of dollars in revenues, and thousands of jobs. Savings as a result of Berkeley Lab developments in lighting and windows, and other energy-efficient technologies, have also been in the billions of dollars. Berkeley Lab was founded in 1931 by Ernest Orlando Lawrence, a UC Berkeley physicist who won the 1939 Nobel Prize in physics for his invention of the cyclotron, a circular particle accelerator that opened the door to high-energy physics. It was Lawrence's belief that scientific research is best done through teams of individuals with different fields of expertise, working together. His teamwork concept is a Berkeley Lab legacy that continues today.
