Assistant Professor in Computer Science (Scientific Computing)

The Department of Computer Science at Durham University is rapidly expanding. As part of the growth of its research group around scientific computing, the department has intensified its collaboration with Durham’s Advanced Research Computing (ARC) directorate and Durham’s three national and regional supercomputing installations (Bede, Cosma and Hamilton), it has started to install its own set of “experimental” hardware, and it has established several industry collaborations (NVIDIA, Intel, The RSC Group, and others). It also champions an Msc in Scientific Computing and Data Analysis (MISCADA).


We search for a new colleague who wants to establish a career and make a contribution to the development of the Department’s research around scientific computing. We wish to strengthen our world-leading expertise around large-scale numerical simulations, to strengthen our links with industry and computational disciplines in Durham (Physics, Earth Sciences, Mathematics, Chemistry, and other disciplines), and to intensify our collaboration with Durham’s three supercomputing centres (ARC, N8, DiRAC). Areas of interest include, but are not limited to performance engineering, novel supercomputing architectures, programming models and numerical schemes. Candidates that complement our existing theoretical strengths and add a strong supercomputing flavour to our research portfolio are particularly encouraged to apply.


This is a permanent academic position. Please note that we currently have two positions advertised in this area (one on the assistant and one on the associate prof level) and we intent to make at least two hires.
