You will be part of HPC system architecture and pathfinding team developing leading edge HPC technologies. Responsibilities include research and development of techniques for hardware acceleration and software optimization of HPC application communication patterns. You will use simulation and measurement techniques to identify performance bottlenecks in software, processors and system interconnect. You will be evaluating different fabric topologies and topology aware routing algorithms for best application performance. As part of the pathfinding team, you will prototype your ideas and work with product architects/designers to ensure smooth transfer of prototyped technology into products. You may occasionally work with our US government research partners to define technology directions and to demonstrate the viability of prototyped technology.

This position involves work on a U.S. Government contract which may impose certain security requirements: If you are a U.S. citizen, the government may require that you certify that you are a U.S. citizen. If you are not a U.S. citizen, the government may require you to pass a security check before you can be approved to work on the project.
