CERFACS provides scientific software and distributes it to its academic and 
industrial partners ( Its tools are used at the 
industrial (AIRBUS, SAFRAN, TOTAL) to perform high fidelity simulations on 
supercomputers. This is why the COOP team ( is

development and usage.
To sum-up our approach, our process aims to reduce the recurring human work 
related to software development. Most of our projects are open-sources and 
codebases can be found on the Cerfacs’s The work is half code 
development (Python, Fortran, Code Generation, sometimes C/C++), half 
reformulation of what was learn into the public COOP blog. Our end users are 
Cerfacs members, Industry engineers (Safran, Airbus) and researchers from europe

engineers, and other COOP (Machine Learning) activities are expected.
In 2022 our goals are four:
•	 improve the technology transfer between research and industry
•	provide tools and techniques to make exascale computing a practical 
asset for simulkation-based design
•	explore the young field of code metrics to bring usefull insights to HPC 
code developers
•	create innovative training material on code development best practices
You can read more on these topics on our Team Blog.
The candidate must have software development skills (CI, tests, lint, bloaters)
