The Adaptive Parallel Execution (APEX) group at the Arlington, Virginia site of the University of Southern California's Information Sciences Institute is seeking candidates for the Research Programmer II position in the area of systems software and/or high performance computing.
The APEX group is conducting research in making high performance computing resources, including shared memory multi-processors, GPU accelerators, and general-purpose many- core architectures available via private cloud infrastructure. We are contributing extensions to the OpenStack open source project, and are conducting studies on and implementing virtualization, scheduling, bare-metal provisioning, and security for high- performance cloud computing.
The successful candidate will write high quality, well-documented code and will be familiar with the best practices in system administration. We are particularly interested in candidates with broad knowledge of systems software and/or high performance computing (HPC). In addition, candidates will be responsible for the administration of a small (16-32 node) cluster.
