Job Description
You will be working on one of the worlds largest and newest HPC systems, at one of the most distinguished global HPC Centres This system has been designed around AMDs latest EPYC processor, Rome, and will launch later this year; as such, it would currently earn a place in the top 20 systems in the world according to top500org This is a significant HPC facility and we are seeking two HPC Applications experts with considerable knowledge in leveraging optimum application performance on large systems

The HPC Applications Expert role is focused upon initially porting and then subsequently optimizing key HLRS codes You will already have gained considerable experience working with some of the largest HPC community codes and are familiar with the challenges these codes take in porting and optimizing for a new HPC system Your optimisation skills will also include a good understanding of compiler and math library optimisation; and there will also be the need to investigate code sensitivities subject to memory latency and cache hierarchy, develop strategies for extreme scaling, and to work with our partner HPE on future memory architectures and Gen-Z networks

You will also have experience working with well known ISV codes such as LS-DYNA, Star CCM , Powerflow, Gaussian, Ansys CFX, and Molpro for example

Based onsite at HLRS, you will be a member of AMDs HPC Centre of Excellence This will provide the opportunity to interface to other teams within AMD and engage with teams working at a deeper level within the processor and with our compiler and math library teams As such these roles provides a significant opportunity for an individual to grow their depth of HPC knowledge down to chip level by working for one of the most exciting semiconductor companies currently in the HPC sector

Role of the HPC Applications Expert

Porting and optimizing both source codes and ISV applications to the new HLRS system
Seeking maximum performance through a combination of compilation flags, libraries, and understanding the AMD Rome architecture down to the Floating Point Unit
Testing different compilers and math libraries in the pursuit of maximum performance
Scaling codes within a single server and then across very large systems
Understanding how code performance is affected at the system-level memory, cache, network, storage etc
Interface with HPC-related groups within AMD eg compilers, libraries, engineering
Cultivate and maintain subject matter expertise in Fortran, C, MPI, OpenMP
Document and publish performance results and procedures you have generated
Automate repeatable procedures such as code compilation, running jobs, etc
Provide feedback to AMDs compiler and math libraries development teams to improve performance
Collaborate with HPE on future GenZ HPC investigations and performance testing

Job Requirements
This position requires an individual with excellent verbal and written communication skills (English language) and a good balance of hardware, system architecture and software expertise The successful candidate must demonstrate the ability to independently manage multiple priorities to deliver results on time, and to build excellent working relationships with both HPE and HLRS

Expertise in compiling large codes from source, with appropriately linked math libraries and flag optimisation VASP, CP2K, NAMD for example
Experience with large CFD and Structural ISV codes
Excellent knowledge in the landscape of different math Libraries for HPC
Impact of system level hardware and configuration on performance, such as Infiniband and shared parallel filesystems
Able to write good Fortran and C, and understand the differences between their respective standards
Demonstrated ability to incorporate and scrutinize MPI and OpenMP
Solid understanding of configuring baseline synthetic codes HPL, STREAM, DGEMM, HPCG, HPCC
Application expertise across a number of CFD, Molecular Dynamics, Quantum Chromodynamics, Structural Mechanics, Climate Change, and weather
Hands-on experience with performance profiling and monitoring tools and software performance optimization
Bachelors degree in a technical discipline (computer science, electrical engineering preferred, physics, applied mathematics)
At least 5 years experience working with High Performance Computing applications
Fluent in English

Preferred Candidate should have

10 years or more experience
Experience inspecting assembly
Experience with large ISV codes including LS-DYNA, Star CCM , Fluent, ABAQUS, NASTRAN, Paraview, CFX, Gaussian
Knowledge in hybrid MPI OMP
Understanding of memory and cache hierarchy and methods to query performance/latency at each level
Understanding HPC dataflow down to the register-level
Fluent in both English and German
Experience making performance projections

Additional Expectations

Role is based onsite at HLRS in Stuttgart but there will be requirements to travel to other HPC Centres and relevant conferences within Europe, and possibly further afield
2-3 trips a year to Austin, Texas
Possible travel to global HPC conferences (ISC, SC for example)
Possibly some travel to India to work with our compiler and library teams
