The Max Planck Computing and Data Facility (MPCDF) is a competence center of the Max Planck Society. It is engaged in the development and optimization of algorithms and applications for high-performance computing as well as in the design and implementation of solutions for data-intensive projects in close collaboration with scientists of the Max Planck Institutes. The MPCDF operates Max Planck supercomputers, computer systems, and data repositories for various Max Planck Institutes and maintains an up-to-date infrastructure for data management including long-term archival as one of the largest such academic sites within Europe.
The Max Planck Computing and Data Facility (MPCDF) is looking for a
The successful candidate will be associated with the artificial intelligence (AI) and high-performance data-analytics (HPDA) division at the MPCDF (located at the research campus in Garching near Munich, Germany) and will work within the upcoming EU-Project “Magnetic Multiscale Modeling Suite” (MaMMoS) on machine learning and AI models to understand the magnetic properties of experimental and simulation data. Among others, the project aims at designing ML / AI models which can predict missing data (experimental and/or from simulations) in a complex parameter space and at correcting systematic errors of simulation results. A close collaboration with all the partners of the project, but especially with researchers of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) will be key to the success of the project.
Further details can be found on our project website (https://mammos-project.github.io/).
We offer the opportunity to work in an international and dynamic environment on cutting-edge, machine learning, and AI projects at the interface of data from HPC simulations and experiments, in close collaboration with leading domain scientists of the Max Planck Society and their international partners. We also foster regularly research visits at the project partners institutions, but especially at the MPSD in Hamburg, Germany. Furthermore, we offer the opportunity to collaborate with specialists of major vendors of HPC systems on solutions for HPC AI problems on existing and upcoming technologies.
The full-time position can start at the beginning of 2024 and is initially limited for a maximum period of four years. Salary will be based on experience according to the German TVöD.
Additional benefits include:
Please apply with a letter of motivation and a CV online until November 15th, 2023. Late applications are welcome and will be considered until the position is filled.
