Simulations are currently the backbone of many numerical discoveries. The application of such simulations span from exploration of new potential drugs to the investigation of the next generation fusion reactors. The more detailed the simulation is, the more complex the computation must be. As such, these simulations can become prohibitively slow, unless they use massive computing resources (like supercomputers) *efficiently*. This is why computational and computer scientists work together to build the right hardware and software infrastructure to improve the computational and energy efficiency of such simulations. In this project, we focus specifically on building efficient solutions for running such simulations, based on high-end computational models, at very large scale. Our goal is to explore new methods to improve the efficiency of these simulations.
What are you going to do?
Your main objective will be to design and develop new methods and techniques to improve the performance and energy efficiency of large-scale coupled numerical models. These new techniques will be tested on simulations such as HemoCell. You will cooperate with multiple research groups throughout the process.
Knowledge on the following is not required, but can be considered as an advantage:
A temporary contract for 38 hours per week preferably starting 1 October 2020 for the duration of 4 years (initial contract will be for a period of 18 months and after satisfactory evaluation it will be extended for a total duration of 4 years) and should lead to a dissertation (PhD thesis). You will get a customized Training and Supervision Plan, that will be evaluated every year. We also expect you to assist in teaching undergraduate and master students.
The salary will be €2,325 to €2,972 (scale P) gross per month, based on full-time employment (38 hours a week). These amounts are exclusive 8% holiday allowance and 8,3% end-of-year bonus. A favorable tax agreement, the ‘30% ruling’, may apply to non-Dutch applicants. The Collective Labour Agreement of Dutch Universities is applicable.

With over 5,000 employees, 30,000 students and a budget of more than 600 million euros, the University of Amsterdam (UvA) is an intellectual hub within the Netherlands. Teaching and research at the UvA are conducted within seven faculties: Humanities, Social and Behavioural Sciences, Economics and Business, Law, Science, Medicine and Dentistry. Housed on four city campuses in or near the heart of Amsterdam, where disciplines come together and interact, the faculties have close links with thousands of researchers and hundreds of institutions at home and abroad.
The UvA’s students and employees are independent thinkers, competent rebels who dare to question dogmas and aren’t satisfied with easy answers and standard solutions. To work at the UvA is to work in an independent, creative, innovative and international climate characterised by an open atmosphere and a genuine engagement with the city of Amsterdam and society.
The Faculty of Science has a student body of around 6,500, as well as 1,600 members of staff working in education, research or support services. Researchers and students at the Faculty of Science are fascinated by every aspect of how the world works, be it elementary particles, the birth of the universe or the functioning of the brain.
