Job description

At the University of Twente, we developed world's fastest technique for accurately simulating the propagation of light, sound, and other waves. In this 18-month project, you will further develop this technique into a professional software product that may be commercialized. Technical challenges include rewriting the code to partition the computations over a large number of cloud-based GPU systems, as well as integration with existing tools and packages.
