Research Associate in Computer Science and Mathematics

Goethe University Frankfurt

There is a full-time position available immediately until June 30, 2024 for a Research Associate (m/f/d) (E13 TV-G-U) at the Goethe University Frankfurt am Main in the Department of Computer Science and Mathematics, Institute for Computer Science. This is a joint project known as FIDIUM (federated digital infrastructures for the exploration of universe and matter). The classification is based on the job description of the collective agreement (TV-G-U) applicable to the Goethe University.

In the context of the FIDIUM project, in which contributions to the efficient use of resources of large, federated computing infrastructures are funded, the successful applicant will contribute to progress in basic research with new ideas for the application of innovative digital methods. The exploration of particles, matter and the universe has already led to significant developments in the field of computing grid technologies and creates the basis for the technologies of tomorrow and beyond. The focus of the tasks here is the further development of efficient strategies for caching large amounts of data using heterogeneous resources.

Prerequisites for employment are a completed scientific university degree, preferably a doctorate (computer science/physics) with expertise in the field of distributed scientific computing. In particular, experience with container technologies, resource management and data management systems used in high-energy physics is an advantage. A good understanding of HPC and cloud systems is required. The activity includes the preparation of publications and scientific talks. It is expected that the job holder will have the ability to work independently and scientifically in a collaborative environment.
