Opportunities at the Network-based Computing Laboratory (NBCL)
Department of Computer Science and Engineering
The Ohio State University

The following positions are currently available.

Post-Doc/Research Scientist Positions

The Network-Based Computing Laboratory (NBCL) at the Ohio State University is engaged in multiple research directions related to high performance network-based computing: High Performance and Scalable MPI over modern Interconnects (InfiniBand and 10GigE/iWARP), Clustered Storage and Parallel File Systems (including NFS and pNFS over RDMA), Design of Scalable Datacenters for Enterprise Applications, Virtualization, High Performance Networking for TCP- and UDP-based Applications and Applications-driven Performance Evaluation. More details on these projects can be obtained by visiting Group's Research Projects link.

The group is looking for enthusiastic Post-Docs/Research Scientists with expertise in some of the research directions carried out in the group. The candidate is expected to take a lead role in some of these projects and work together with Ph.D. students, M.S. students, and faculty member in this group to carry out state-of-the-art research, design, and development including writing papers and proposals. The candidate should have strong background and experience in designing different kinds of high-end computing systems, network protocol stacks, and their components. A Ph.D. degree in computer science or computer engineering is a must. A few years of experience after Ph.D. is preferred, but not mandatory. The candidate should have good communication skills, writing skills and team working experience.

Software Engineer/Programmer Positions

The Network-Based Computing Laboratory (NBCL) at the Ohio State University is looking for enthusiastic Software Engineers/Programmers with strong expertise in systems programming, cluster computing, and network programming with modern interconnects (InfiniBand and 10GigE) to join the group.

The NBCL group is currently involved in research and development of two high performance MPI packages (MVAPICH and MVAPICH2) for clusters with InfiniBand and other RDMA-enabled (including iWARP) interconnects. These packages are currently being used by more than 700 organizations worldwide. More details on this project can be obtained by visiting MVAPICH project web page.

The software engineer/programmer is expected to take a lead role in one of these projects and work together with the graduate students, research scientist, programmers and faculty member in this group to design and develop production quality code with novel features. Strong experience in Linux/Solaris, C programming, network programming (such as TCP/IP and low-level networking stacks), etc. is desired. The candidate should also be familiar with the typical design cycle (design, develop, test, tune, release, bug fixes, etc.) for producing and maintaining high quality software and the associated tools. The candidate should have good communication skills and team working experience. An M.S./B.S. degree in computer science or computer engineering with a few years of experience (especially working in a team project) is preferred. Other exceptional candidates with degrees from other disciplines and having at least five years of experience in working in the field of computer science/computer engineering will also be considered.
