UKRI has a corporate policy on Equality and Diversity which is supported by a Diversity Forum and implementation group. The Role: The continuing success of the Hartree Centre means we are looking to recruit hardworking and enthusiastic Computing Scientists to work on ground-breaking projects across high performance computing, big data analytics, and AI. The successful candidate will be working with the latest architectures and technologies to meet the needs of UK industry. If successful you will join a well-established and expanding team of extraordinary Computational Scientists and High-Performance Software Engineers within our Centre, with an expanding IBM research team at STFC. You will work with business development personnel to develop collaborations with industrial partners and public agencies. We work closely with industrial clients on specific projects, and you will also contribute to these projects as needed. Some of the work will be commercial in confidence and subject to IPR rules around public disclosure. The role may involve working closely with teams within commercial companies. Your responsibilities include but are not limited to: Building computational models of components, products and processes Help commercial partners understand how to model uncertainties and adopt complex models, especially multilevel, multi-scale ones as well as adopt efficient techniques for model coupling Support our partners integrate hierarchical and multilevel modelling approaches that enable efficient integration of novel AI methods in their applications Working with Business Development on project scoping, in particular identifying appropriate objectives to address client challenges, and feasibility assessment of technologies required to meet objectives and support our business development managers with technical pre-sales Learn and apply HPC, data centric, analytics and AI technologies Look at validation of conclusions, and presentation of results to customers (including advanced visualisation) Contributing and writing project applications for funding from national and international competitions Project management across a range of project sizes and types, typically involving members from other groups within Hartree (including Research Software Engineering, HPC, AI and Data Science) Make site visits to commercial and academic partners Publish non-confidential results.
