The HEP-CCE is happy to announce a call for applications to its 2018 GRADUATE STUDENT SUMMER INTERNSHIP PROGRAM. This program gives graduate students in HEP with a strong interest in computing a chance to work with teams at DOE laboratories on challenging problems currently facing HEP.
Applications to the program should include a CV, a statement of current research, and a short statement on how participation in the program will benefit the student’s current work and future career. A letter of recommendation from the student’s research adviser is also required.
Deadline: March 2, 2018
The Quantum Computing Summer School at Los Alamos National Laboratory is an immersive 10-week curriculum that includes tutorials from world-leading experts in quantum computation as well as one-on-one mentoring from LANL staff scientists who are conducting cutting-edge quantum computing research. Summer school fellowship recipients will be exposed to the theoretical foundations of quantum computation and will become skilled at programming commercial quantum computers, such as those developed by D-Wave Systems and IBM. Ten students will be awarded a fellowship from LANL that covers travel, living expenses in Los Alamos, and salary, with a fellowship value ranging from $7,500 to $13,000, based on academic rank (junior, senior, 1st year graduate student, etc.).

The SLAC HEP Theory Group expects to make a Research Associate postdoctoral appointment for a 2-year term beginning October 1, 2018. The successful applicant is expected to work on the construction of a Monte-Carlo event generator for collider physics, suitable for parallel calculations on High Performance Computers.
The senior members of our group are: Stan Brodsky, Lance Dixon, Alexander Friedland, JoAnne Hewett, Stefan Hoeche, Michael Peskin, Thomas Rizzo, Philip Schuster and Natalia Toro. The interests of our group cover all areas of particle physics, quantum field theory, and the interface of particle physics and astroparticle physics. We have strong ties to experimental groups interested in high energy collider physics and particle astrophysics.
NERSC currently has several openings for postdocs, system administrators, and more! If you’re looking for new opportunities, please consider the following openings:

Berkeley Lab’s Physics Division has an opening for a Physicist Project Scientist responsible for developing and evaluating new software workflows that exploit the capabilities of the High Performance Computing (HPC) facilities at the Lab’s National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC). These workflows will allow physicists in the High-Energy and Nuclear Physics groups at LBNL to efficiently perform Monte Carlo simulation, data reconstruction, and data analysis.
The ALCF has several staff and postdoctoral researcher positions available.
The DOE Exascale Computing Project (ECP) is pleased to sponsor a webinar presented by Sameer Shende of the University of Oregon on the TAU Performance System. The webinar will take place on Wednesday, November 8, at 1:00 pm ET.
