Subject: Free on-line parallel computing course, XSEDE

Graduate and undergraduate students from all disciplines who are
interested in using parallel computers efficiently and productively
are invited to register for a FREE online course sponsored by the
Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment (XSEDE /

The online course is an adaptation of the class Applications of
Parallel Computers <>
taught by professor Jim Demmel at U.C. Berkeley in Spring
2012. Lecture materials, quizzes, and programming exercises will be
rolled out weekly from Feb. 14 to May 2. For more information on the
topics covered in the course, see

As a prerequisite, students should have some programming experience in
C or similar language. Enrollment is limited to the first 300 students
and registration will close Feb. 13. To enroll, first visit to create an XSEDE portal account; then
visit to register for the
Applications of Parallel Computers course. Registered students will
receive accounts to access XSEDE computing resources and consulting
help. Those who successfully complete all quizzes and programming
assignments will receive an XSEDE certificate of completion.

Post Doctoral Fellow To Apply Uncertainty Quantification
Molecular-Dynamics Coarse-Graining

The Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute at the University
of Utah invites applications for one post-doctoral researcher for
interdisciplinary work spanning applied mathematics, computer science
and material sciences. The successful candidate will perform research
in the application of uncertainty quantification (UQ) techniques to
coarse-graining algorithms developed to accelerate molecular dynamics
simulations and other particle-based methods, and will work closely
with SCI Institute researchers and external collaborators to integrate
research into SCI Institute software applications and apply this
software to compelling problems in science and engineering

The SCI Institute is seeking a highly talented and committed
individual with a demonstrated ability to work well with minimal
supervision in a multi-disciplinary research environment. Backgrounds
in the engineering sciences, applied mathematics, physics and
computational sciences will be considered. Individuals comfortable
with probability theory, multiscale theory, and statistical mechanics
preferred. The candidate selected will contribute to the Institute's
world-class research and software development efforts and have the
opportunity to develop their research, publication, and presentation
skills under mentorship from established faculty investigators.
Please contact Mike Kirby ( for further information.
