Job Posting Title:  Computer Scientist - Visualization Liaison- Oak Ridge National Lab (ORNL)

The National Center for Computational Sciences (NCCS) in the Computing
and Computational Sciences Directorate at the Oak Ridge National
Laboratory (ORNL) seeks to hire a Computer Scientist within the
Scientific Computing Group to serve as a Visualization Liaison to users
of the OLCF computing resources.  With the continuing advances in data
acquisition and simulation techniques, increasingly large 3D data sets
have to be processed and interactively displayed for real-time visual
exploration.  The emphasis of the open position in this context is on
the efficient scalable out-of-core and parallel visual data processing
of very large spatial and volumetric data sets.

Major Duties/Responsibilities:

The successful candidate will directly interact with several external
collaborators and data-set providers, including industrial and academic
institutions.  This requires interest not only in graphics related
algorithms and data structures but also in the task and data complexity
of the targeted application, and collaboration with domain scientists
and other institutions.  The work of the Visualization Liaison will
often build on other and previously developed techniques, so a strong
interest in learning new programming frameworks and 3rd-party code is
necessary, in addition to established skills in numerical methods and
applied mathematics.

This position provides the opportunity to develop personal research
skills and experience and to contribute to the acquisition of new
funding in order to develop the visualization axis within the OLCF.
