Job Summary Visualization Postdoc Position
Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute
University of Utah

www.sci.utah.edu/join.html The Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute at the University of Utah invites applications for one post-doctoral researcher for interdisciplinary work in parallel rendering for visualization applications. The successful candidate will perform research in parallel rendering visualization and work closely with SCI Institute researchers and external collaborators to integrate research into SCI Institute software applications and apply this software to compelling problems in science and engineering.

The SCI Institute is seeking a highly talented and committed individual with a demonstrated ability to work well with minimal supervision in a multi-disciplinary research environment. The successful candidate will contribute to the Institute’s world-class research and software development in scientific visualization and have the opportunity to develop their research, publication, and presentation skills under mentorship from established faculty investigators.

Non-Technical Skills: Excellent oral and written communication skills are mandatory. A willingness to collaborate in a highly diverse, multi-disciplinary environment is also essential.

Benefits: The University of Utah offers a very competitive benefits package: www.hr.utah.edu/benefits/

Comments: Please apply to the University of Utah Division of Human Resources. Please include the names of at least three references along with a curriculum vitae and list of publications.

Start date: Immediate.

The initial appointment will be for a one-year period, with the possibility of an extension based upon performance and availability of funding.

The University of Utah, an AA/EO employer, encourages applications from women and minorities, and provides reasonable accommodation to the known disabilities of applicants and employees.

The SCI Institute: The SCI Institute is a world-class research institute located within the new Warnock Engineering Building on the University of Utah campus. We are a highly dynamic, driven group of over 200 faculty, staff, and students.

The overarching goals of the SCI Institute’s scientific computing research are to create new techniques, tools, and systems, by which scientists may solve problems affecting various aspects of human life. We believe that to advance the state-of-the-art and create meaningful computational solutions for such complex systems, one needs to advance research in a number of areas within scientific computing, including: visualization, simulation, and modeling.

Furthermore, for this algorithmic and software research to have a real impact outside of scientific computing and computer science, these components must be integrated with data and application specific knowledge within intuitive software systems, problem solving environments (PSEs) or computational workbenches.

The SCI Institute presents a highly challenging, collaborative work environment that can be deeply rewarding for the right individual. Further information is available at www.sci.utah.edu.
