Deadline for applications(3 days left)
Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC)Jülich
As a member of the Helmholtz Association, Forschungszentrum Jülich makes an effective contribution to solving major challenges facing society in the fields
of information, energy, and bioeconomy. It focuses on varied tasks in the area of research management and utilizes large, often unique, scientific infrastructure.
Come and work with around 6,100 colleagues across a range of topics and disciplines at one of Europe's largest research centres.
The Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) is a research institute that operates one of the most powerful supercomputer infrastructures for scientific and engineering applications in
Europe, situated within Research Center Jülich (FZJ), member of Helmholtz Association.
To advance large-scale machine / deep learning (ML/DL) research with High Performance Computing (HPC), JSC sets up a High Level Support Team (HLST). Focused on software development
and research support for ML/DL, HLST will become part of the recently launched Helmholtz Artificial Intelligence Cooperation Unit (HAICU). HAICU is a Helmholtz-wide platform consisting
of 6 Helmholtz Research Centers across Germany, FZJ being among them. HAICU aims to reach an international leadership position in basic and applied AI research by combining advanced
methods from ML/DL with Helmholtz' unique scientific questions and data sets - bringing together scientists from all Helmholtz centers, scientific partner institutions and industrial
partners and fostering open, transdisciplinary research, with strong dedication to principles of open science and open source. At JSC, HLST will work on setting up HAICU close together
with the research-oriented Cross-Sectional Team Deep Learning (CST-DL). The research topics will include large-scale, self-supervised, multi-task continual learning for growing general
AI models on modular supercomputers, physics-informed Deep Learning, transfer and few-shot learning for cross-domain applications. Special focus will be on making use of highly scalable
and distributed ML/DL methods on HPC facilities hosted at JSC.
We are looking to recruit members of HLST
