CISL seeking director for Technology Development Division

June 8, 2020

CISL is seeking a director for its Technology Development Division (TDD), the lab's applied research and technology development program. The search was launched following the announcement that current TDD director Rich Loft will retire at the end of 2021 after 25 years of service to NCAR. In addition to guiding and managing TDD, Loft is one of CISL's resident experts on HPC in the Earth system sciences, takes a lead role in CISL business development activities, and created and fostered the SIParCS program over many years.

The TDD director will be responsible for leading CISL's efforts in evaluating HPC technology trends and the impact they will have on NCAR’s modeling enterprise. The position will have a lead role in preparing NCAR applications for exascale, which requires a broad, detailed understanding of HPC architectures, algorithmic developments and optimization concepts in the domain of atmospheric and related sciences. TDD comprises six groups and roughly 35 staff. The groups encompass HPC application scalability and performance, machine learning, data assimilation, workflows, visualization, and GPU porting and other special projects.
