The PHARE Project (Parallel Hybrid Code with Adaptive mesh Refinement) aims to develop a 3D AMR Hybrid Particle-In-Cell code devoted to the simulation of large scale plasma processes. Started in 2016, the code is today in the form of a 1D prototype, intended to validate the numerical methods used to integrate the equations on different levels of refinement. From now on, an important goal is to interface the code with the massively parallel AMR library SAMRAI. The team is looking to recruit an engineer for a period of 12 months to participate in this interfacing.

Description of your mission:

You will integrate a small team of researchers and engineers as a developer. Thereby, you will participate to the development of the interface with SAMRAI library. You will be in charge of design, implementation, testing and documentation of the code. The main technical objective will concern deriving abstract types of the library and encapsulate the native types of the current code. Next setting up the different stages of the AMR, from refinement to load balancing will also be considered.

Your profile

•    Modern C ++ (> = 11) development expert and good knowledge of the STL
•    Good knowledge of GIT and team development experience
•    Experience in Parallel Code Programming and Debugging (OpenMP, MPI)
•    Experience using test libraries like Google Test
•    Knowledge of Python
•    Good knowledge of Unix and Linux
•    Good level in English read and write.
•    Experience in the field of continuous integration (desirable)
•    Experience in developing efficient codes (desirable)
•    Knowledge of mesh refinement is a plus


You will be based in the premises of the LPP (UMR 7648) at the Ecole Polytechnique (Palaiseau) and will be brought to go to LERMA at UPMC (Campus de Jussieu) in Paris.


between 26500 and 33500 net annual, depending on the experience of the candidate.
