Subject: Research & Software Engineering Positions at MRJ--NASA Ames


    MRJ, Inc. has several immediate openings for research computer
    scientists and software engineers in the Parallel Tools team at the
    Numerical Aerodynamic Simulation (NAS) facility at NASA Ames Research


    Develop and demonstrate innovative technologies for debugging and
    monitoring parallel applications.


    MRJ will be filling both research positions and software engineering
    positions. The research positions require a Ph.D. in computer science
    or equivalent experience; the software engineering require substantial
    programming experience. We are looking for innovative, organized
    individuals who work well in a group environment and have demonstrated
    experience in the following areas:

          - substantial experience with UNIX
          - use of X/Motif in building GUI's
          - experience with message passing systems such as PVM or MPI
          - working knowledge of FORTRAN
          - extensive programming in C; use of C++ a plus, plus
          - parallel processing (programming, system software and/or

    In addition, the following would be helpful:

          - experience on multiprocessors such as the IBM SP-2,
              SGI POWER/Challenge, or Cray J90
          - compiler development using various frontend/backend tools
          - familiarity with High Performance Fortran (HPF)
          - experience with a GUI builder such as TeleUse or BuilderXcessory
          - knowledge of computational fluid dynamics and parallel algorithms
          - familiarity with High Performance Fortran (HPF), and
          - familiarity with HTML and the World Wide Web.


    The NASA Ames Research Center, located near Mountain View, California,
    was recently designated as NASA's Center of Excellence in Information
    Technology. This role makes the center responsible for integrating
    various aspects of information technology, including vector
    supercomputing, parallel computing, and networking, into NASA's other
    efforts, including aeronautics and space sciences.

    The NAS program is part of a central core of programs at NASA Ames
    which have information technology as their focus. As part of its
    pathfinding role for NASA in the area of high-speed computing over the
    last decade, NAS has acquired and provided access to some of the most
    advanced computing systems available. These systems have included the
    Thinking Machines CM-2 and CM-5, the Intel iPSC/860 and Paragon, and
    currently include a 160-processor IBM SP2, a 48-processor SGI Power
    Challenge Array, a 16-processor Cray C90, and a 32-processor Cray J90
    cluster. Part of NAS's mission is to provide a suitable environment
    (which includes system software, tools, and libraries) for scientists
    to develop applications on these machines. The NAS environment
    encourages continuing education and intellectual growth, including
    writing, publishing, and presenting technical papers.

    The Parallel Tools Team in NAS is currently pursuing several projects
    that support the programming process on parallel and distributed
    machines. For more information about the projects with open
    positions, please see:


    MRJ, Inc. serves as an on-site contractor at NAS, performing research
    and development activities. It is an employee-owned company focused on
