              Campus/College Information:

              Founded in 1856, University of Maryland, College Park is the state’s flagship institution. Our 1,250-acre College Park campus is just minutes away from Washington, D.C., and the nexus of the nation’s legislative, executive, and judicial centers of power. This unique proximity to business and technology leaders, federal departments and agencies, and a myriad of research entities, embassies, think tanks, cultural centers, and non-profit organizations is simply unparalleled. Synergistic opportunities for our faculty and students abound and are virtually limitless in the nation’s capital and surrounding areas. The University is committed to attracting and retaining outstanding and diverse faculty and staff that will enhance our stature of preeminence in our three missions of teaching, scholarship, and full engagement in our community, the state of Maryland, and in the world.

              Position Summary/Purpose of Position:

              Scientific software developer
              The Hidden Symmetries and Fusion Energy project is seeking a scientific software developer to join our team. Our multi-institution initiative, funded by the Simons Foundation, is working to build a mathematical and computational foundation for the design of stellarators for magnetic plasma confinement. Our team is highly multidisciplinary with experts in physics, mathematics, and computer science, specializing in areas such as magnetohydrodynamics, dynamics, numerical optimization, and scientific computing. The role of the new software developer in this project will be to develop and maintain SIMSOPT (Simons Optimization code), the team’s computational tools for stellarator optimization. Further information about the Hidden Symmetries project can be found at https://hiddensymmetries.princeton.edu

              SIMSOPT is expected to build on the accomplishments of the stellarator design code STELLOPT. The central responsibility of the software developer will be to develop the SIMSOPT software infrastructure, providing interfaces to multiple physics codes and optimization libraries. As part of this work, the new developer will be expected to incorporate testing frameworks and write code documentation. The project may also include modernization of some existing physics codes, for example integrating new boundary element solvers written by other team members. The work will evolve as new code components are developed by other members of the Hidden Symmetries collaboration.

              The location for the position is flexible, but it would be based at one of the collaboration’s member institutions, such as the University of Maryland (College Park) or Princeton University. Regardless of the location at which the software developer is based, he or she will collaborate with members of the Hidden Symmetries team at multiple institutions.

              Applicants should provide a cover letter describing their interest in the position, a resume/CV, and contact information for two people who can act as references. Also, as an example of previous work, applicants should submit the source code (or a link to it) for a software application they have written (uploaded as the supplemental document 1). For full consideration, applications should be submitted by the end of January 2, 2020. Questions can be directed to Matt Landreman (mattland@umd.edu). Applications should be submitted through www.tztianfu.com.

              Minimum Qualifications:

              The scientific software used by our team is primarily written in Fortran, C++, and python, so candidates must be proficient in these languages, and knowledge of mixed-language programming is an advantage. Candidates must have experience with MPI; experience with other parallel programming models is also desirable. Familiarity with stellarator physics is not necessary.
