The next generation of HPC platform will provide teraflop performance
from 10^5 or more cores. A major challenge is to develop the programming
models and software infrastructures to effectively exploit these
architectures. In the HPC-GAP project (High Performance Computational
Algebra and Discrete Mathematics EPSRC EP/G055181) we aim to address
this challenge for the GAP Group Algebra package.

You will join a team of four researchers in an ambitious programme to
adapt the GAP computational algebra system to take advantage of modern
high performance computers. You will collaborate with other HPC-GAP
members at Aberdeen and St Andrews and Edinburgh Universities. You will
take part in and publish research using the software you develop.

You will have excellent parallel system engineering expertise, a degree
in computer science, an appropriate PhD or equivalent, and good teamwork
skills. Desirable criteria include functional language experience e.g.
Haskell, a track record of academic publications, experience preparing
research grant applications, and experience with a range of software

You will start on 1 September 2009 and continue until the end of the
grant in August 2013.
