Duties: Each level of parallelism requires at least a scheduler. The scheduling goals differ from level to level and may be conflicting between levels. For instance, cluster level schedulers typically aim at maximizing fairness among all applications in terms of their execution time which may result in non-optimal execution times for certain applications. Application level schedulers typically aim at minimizing the execution time of a single application, which may result in non-balanced execution times among applications. Addressing the problem jointly at multiple levels is called multi-level scheduling and constitutes a multi-objective combinatorial optimization problem
Minimum Requirements: A Master's degree (or equivalent) in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or Mathematics; Very good programming skills (C, C++, Java); Very good knowledge of operating systems, in particular Linux; Fluency in English (verbally and in writing)
Preferred Requirements: Knowledge of German, although not required, can be a plus. Experience in carrying out research projects and writing scientific articles will be considered a plus. Experience with parallel programming and familiarity with simulation environment are also a plus

Duties: As the sizes of the system and the system temperature rapidly increase, high system failure rates are observed. A feature of interest for scheduling scientific applications in such environments is support for fault detection and management. A solution to the application-level resilience to faults problem must meet the following requirements: (i) Efficiency, without compromising performance; (ii) The reliability level must be user controlled - greater reliability incurs a higher cost (resources, CPU time, energy consumption, or allocation price); (iii) Minimal code changes in the application. Scheduling algorithms that detect faults and are able to manage them are called fault tolerant. The most common fault tolerance strategies include task replication and application checkpointing. It is unclear which of the solutions will scale to the size of exascale computing systems
Minimum Requirements: A Master's degree (or equivalent) in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or Mathematics. Very good programming skills (C, C++, Java); Very good knowledge of operating systems, in particular Linux; Fluency in English (verbally and in writing)
