Postdoctoral Positions in Computer Science


The Texas Center for Computational and Information Sciences (TCCIS) at the University of Houston seeks computer scientists to participate in national scale projects with the National Science Foundation funded Partnerships for Advanced Computational Infrastructure, NPACI lead by the University of California at San Diego and NCSA lead by the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign in the areas of distributed computation, wide area data caching, hierarchical storage management and parallel scientific libraries. The TCCIS has excellent computational, visualization and networking resources. It has at its disposal a 64 node IBM SP2 with mass storage, a vector supercomputer, and a 3D CAVE and other visualization resources through the Virtual Environment Technology Laboratory (VETL), a campus ATM network, an OC-12 regional network connected to the Texas GigaPoP that serves as the gateway to the vBNS. The University of Houston through TCCIS is affiliated with the Center for Research in Parallel Computation, an NSF Science and Technology Center. TCCIS is also participating in the Globus project and its GUSTO tesbed that at SC97 operated with about 3,600 processors on several continents. The Globus project received the 1998 NGI Award for innovative use of the Internet. For the Alliance98 symposium TCCIS participated in a collaborative virtual environment demonstration involving five sites: EVL at the University of Illinois at Chicago, NCSA at the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign, The University of Utah, ParallelDatorCentrum at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, and TCCIS at the University of Houston.

Required: Ph.D. in Computer Science or Computational Science; experience with parallel supercomputers or distributed computing (either systems or applications experience is acceptable); fluency in high-level and parallel computer languages.

Hiring Range: Salary commensurate with experience.

The University of Houston is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer and especially welcomes applications from women and minority group members.

Applications, including a resume, a list of publications and the names of at least three references should be sent to
