Department: Swiss National Supercomputing Centre
Duration: 2-6 m
Duties: This internship involves the new ICON (ICOsahedral Non-hydrostatic) climate and numerical weather prediction model, being developed by the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPI-M) and the German Weather Service (DWD). In order to port portions of this model to accelerators, a new testing infrastructure is being implemented. It uses the buildbot tool and encompasses several different strategies to verify results of different implementations. The goal of the internship would be to contribute to the development and implementation of verification strategies, including their integration into the ICON testbed and the buildbot framework

Duties: At CSCS, you will have the opportunity to work with world-leading computer systems, large-scale storage and applications for a wide variety of different research areas. The RAMSES code aims at studying the evolution of the large-scale structure of the universe and the process of galaxy formation. RAMSES is an adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) multi-species code, describing the behavior of both the baryonic component, represented as a fluid on the cells of the AMR mesh, and the dark matter, represented as a set of collisionless particles. The goal of the project is to implement, based on a study previously accomplished, a novel data structure which should highly improve the code performance and scalability. Performance optimization will be done on both CPUs and GPUs
Minimum Requirements: Skills and competencies in Computational Science are required. In particular, the candidate should have good knowledge of the C or Fortran 90 programming languages
Preferred Requirements: A background in Physics or Astrophysics is advantageous

Duties: At CSCS, you will have the opportunity to work with world-leading computer systems, large-scale storage and applications for a wide variety of different research areas. The task will involve porting certain physical parameterizations (which calculate the collective effect of physical phenomena which occur on a scale that is smaller than the underlying numerical grid) to accelerators using the OpenACC programming paradigm. The parameterization will first be isolated in a testbed subset of the model, so that subsequent changes can be easily validated. The finished product would be the validated parameterization running within this testbed framework, however, potentially the work might also include its integration into the overall ICON model

Duties: At CSCS, you will have the opportunity to work with world-leading computer systems, large-scale storage and applications for a wide variety of different research areas. The use of GPU in the inner kernel of the likelihood computation in the FastCodeML computational evolutionary biology code could speedup this computational intensive kernel. The availability of OpenACC and Cray's OpenACC-enabled numerical library could make it possible if the data movement will be optimized by moving also the supporting routines to a OpenACC environment

Duties: At CSCS, you will have the opportunity to work with world-leading computer systems, large-scale storage and applications for a wide variety of different research areas. One step of the likelihood computation in the FastCodeML computational evolutionary biology code is the eigendecomposition of one 61x61 matrix. This step becomes a bottleneck for scalability because it is essentially sequential because current numerical libraries consider the problem too small to attempt parallelization. This project aims at finding if algorithms for parallel small matrix eigendecomposition exist, implement one of them inside FastCodeML and benchmark it to find if scalability could be effectively improved

Duties: At CSCS, you will have the opportunity to work with world-leading computer systems, large-scale storage and applications for a wide variety of different research areas. The computation of maximum likelihood for a forest of phylogenetic trees is challenging for an efficient and scalable parallel implementation. But the data structures could be reinterpreted as a Direct Acyclic Graph (DAG) and traversed using a dataflow scheduling in which each node independently fires the computation when all antecedent data are ready. This fine grained computational architecture provides much more opportunities of efficient parallelization and also make possible the reduction in redundant computations over the tree branches

Duration: 3 y
Duties: This project has two tasks: to develop methods of obtaining rule-based control parameters from optimised operational schedules, and to implement and evaluate such rules both in simulations and in a real energy hub. The first task will apply statistical and data-mining techniques to large sets of optimal schedules, to derive relationships between measureable parameters (temperatures, renewable availability, energy demands, storage states) and operational variables (generation, conversion and storage equipment behaviour). These relationships will then be used to obtain operational strategies that can be applied via a control logic and associated parameters. The second task will evaluate the performance of the strategies and controls developed in real energy hubs and buildings: the SELF and NEST buildings at Empa. Different operational strategies will be implemented in the programmable logic controller of the building energy system. Performance will then be evaluated under occupied conditions. Iterative improvements will address errors identified in control strategies and simulation approached
Minimum Requirements: masters in Engineering or Physics (or related), strong background and experience in the design, control, simulation and monitoring of buildings and energy systems
Preferred Requirements: Experience in sustainable building design and control, use of optimisation algorithms, statistical analysis of time series data, and good programming abilities
