Company Overview AIS is actively seeking individuals who can contribute to national security within the science, technology, and engineering fields as part of our supplemental labor team at vital federal research and development installations supporting the Department of Energy. AIS has an established history of contributing to the success of their customer’s mission. Available employment opportunities may range from administrative and logistical support to advanced technical positions.

Job Summary Applies integrated technical judgment--which requires using the scientific method to recognize and formulate problems, to collect data through observation and experimentation, and to formulate and test hypotheses- to anticipate, innovate, and deliver solutions to Sandia National Laboratories missions. Roots the work in the fundamentals of science and engineering while applying a deep understanding of engineering and scientific principles. Creates and applies scientific theories and laws and engineering methods used within scientific and engineering disciplines to develop or demonstrate new designs, concepts, materials, machines, products, processes, or systems. Uses physical and computational simulation, analysis, and evaluation as Inherent activities of development. Plans, conducts, and executes Sandia's science and engineering programs within the spectrum of fundamental research, development, or demonstration. Participates in the development and application of computational capabilities to solve problems in science and engineering. Applies methods and techniques that merge disciplines in science and engineering with computer science. Includes the research, development, deployment and in-depth technical support of general scientific and engineering application software and related tools.

Job Specifications Develop and apply massively parallel software in the domain of particle physics for problems of interest to Sandia's mission areas, primarily materials science and plasma physics. Team with other Sandia researchers to build and enhance Sandia's LAMMPS (large-scale Atomic/Molecular Massively Parallel Simulator) software simulation package {****other software packages that use Particle-in-Cell (PIC) and direct simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC),to better accomplish Sandia's mission and to prepare the software packages for exascale computing on next generation platforms.

Plans, conceives, conducts, or manages research and development for Sandia's customers and sponsors. Directs systematic study toward a fuller knowledge or understanding of the fundamental aspects of phenomena and of observable facts, and discovers new approaches to achieve goals. Creates new understandings and capabilities by using the scientific method's hypothesis, test, and evaluation techniques; critical review; or similar engineering research and development methods. Initiates, designs, develops, executes, and evaluates new processes, products, or systems through basic and applied research. Uses engineering principles to research, design, or develop structures, instruments, machines, experiments, processes, systems, theories, or technologies; to construct or operate the same with full cognizance of their design; or to forecast their behavior under specific operating conditions. Undertakes development and possible technology transfer of solutions, products, principles or technology. Undertakes creative work, making systematic use of investigation or experimentation, to discover or revise knowledge of reality, and uses this knowledge to devise new applications.

Knowledge, Skills, Ability Advanced technical degree or significant equivalent experience. Technical knowledge and competencies appropriate to the position. Thorough knowledge of and applied experience with scientific and engineering methods and with the discipline's standards for the ethical conduct of research. Thorough knowledge of and experience with designing, planning, and executing research, design, and development projects. Demonstrated knowledge of and experience with implementing Sandia policies affecting research, design, and development activities, projects, or initiatives. Demonstrated ability to team across disciplines.

Minimum Qualifications (Required) computer science or relevant engineering discipline (e.g. aerospace, materials, mechanical, chemical, electrical).

High-level expertise and at least five years' experience in scientific computer programming for massively parallel computing clusters.

Experience with using, developing, and programming particle-based simulation methods, primarily molecular dynamics

Preferred Qualifications (Desired)

Experience with the LAMMPS software package ( ****), Particle-in-Cell (PIC) and direct simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) methods.

Experience with code verification and modern software quality practices.

Software development experience, including working with development teams using object-oriented frameworks would be valuable.
