Position at LBNL

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.


Registration is now open for the Scaling to Petascale Institute, which will be held June 26-30, 2017. The petascale institute is a collaboration between multiple institutions. The purpose of the institute is for people who are developing, modifying, and supporting research projects to enhance their knowledge and skills to scale software to petascale and emerging extreme-scale computing systems. Basic familiarity with Linux, programming, and MPI are recommended. The agenda includes introductory and advanced MPI, OpenMP, scaling, profiling, and debugging, GPU programming, OpenACC, Phi programming, scientific libraries, Parallel I/O, HDF5, Globus, and software engineering.

HEP-CCE Announces: Graduate Student Summer Internship Program

The HEP-CCE announces a summer internship program for graduate students in the US who would like to work at Argonne National Laboratory, Fermilab National Accelerator Laboratory, and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. The program covers the three high energy physics frontier  areas (Cosmic, Energy, and Intensity) and is aimed at  computationally-oriented graduate students interested in new  educational, training, and research opportunities. A strong computing/computational background is highly desirable. Continue reading HEP-CCE Announces: Graduate Student Summer Internship Program
