The Center for Predictive Engineering and Computational Sciences in
the Oden Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences at the
University of Texas at Austin is searching for Postdoctoral Scholars
to work on the development and implementation of advanced numerical
methods for the Boltzmann and radiative transport equations.  These
techniques are being developed as part of a large, multidisciplinary
research project on predictive simulation models of inductively coupled
plasma (ICP) torches. High-fidelity simulation of an ICP torch
presents challenges in both multi-physics modeling as well as
algorithms and programming paradigms for emerging exascale computing
platforms.  This postdoc will contribute to the development of
algorithms for solving the Boltzmann and radiative transfer equations,
the implementation of these algorithms in a framework targeting
exascale architectures, and the coupling of the resulting tools with
solvers for other components of the system, including the compressible
Navier-Stokes equations and Maxwell's equations.

Knowledge of finite element and/or spectral methods and prior software
experience in large-scale parallel code development is required,
including, for example, MPI, C++, multi-threading, and git revision
control.  Applicants must have a Doctorate in Science,
Engineering, Computer Science, Computational Science, Applied
Mathematics, or a related technical field.  Candidates with experience
in simulation of fluid mechanics and/or plasma physics are preferred.
