Context And Mission
The Earth Sciences Department at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) (www.bsc.es) is embarking on an umbrella of large-scale activities and developments linked to the implementation of a High-Resolution Emission System for Air Quality Prediction and Greenhouse Gas Monitoring. These activities are part of a large initiative on the “Modernization of observation networks and digitalization of production processes for the development of intelligent meteorological services in the context of climate change” in the framework of the European Recovery, Transformation, and Resilience Plan funded by the European Union-Next Generation EU.
In this ambitious and potentially rewarding endeavor, we need a variety of researchers, and research engineers in computer science. The applicants would ideally have interest in identifying model bottlenecks and research how to remove them, adaptation of parallel codes for accelerators (GPUs).
Porting and optimizing applications to efficiently run on supercomputers based on CPUs and GPUs
Design highly scalable, testable code
Use of novel GPU technologies
Close interaction with external collaborators/software vendors as NVIDIA or AMD
