The University of California, Davis, invites applications for the position of Software Programmer for the Computational Infrastructure for Geodynamics (CIG). CIG is funded by the National Science Foundation to develop and support high performance open source software for geophysical applications in cooperation with the computational geoscience community.

The successful applicants will, under general direction:

1. Develop, engineer, and maintain complex open-source, solid-earth geodynamics modeling software;

2. Utilize expertise in high performance computing and computational algorithms to assist academic scientists to identify and implement improved techniques; and

3. Participate in and provide documentation for software training activities to academic scientists around the country including delivering and developing talks and tutorials on CIG software.

Applicants should have knowledge of computer science, cross-platform programming, applied physics, geophysics or a closely related field. Experience in C and C++, numerical methods, linux systems, and solid communication skills are required.

Earth & Planetary Science Letters invites papers concerning any scientific aspect of the USArray component of EarthScope. We seek papers on instrumentation, background noise studies, seismicity and earthquake source studies, wave propagation investigations, new seismic analysis methods, and interpretation of earth structure and dynamics using USArray Transportable and/or Flexible Array data, including both the seismic and magnetotelluric components.

The papers will be published online as they are ready in EPSL's Article in Press section, with the issue rolling along much like USArray itself. Submissions will undergo normal external peer review. There will be no delay in publication waiting for other contributions; papers receive a DOI as soon as they appear online and are fully citable. Papers will be indexed and cited as for regular EPSL articles.

We invite comparisons between work by different researchers, for example, comparisons between the numerous travel time tomography models for the western United States. We are also interested in submissions that integrate different aspects of USArray datasets (for example, comparisons between seismic and MT models) and papers that integrate USArray data with constraints from other disciplines (e.g., geodynamics, petrology, geochemistry, geomorphology, structural geology).

We also encourage use of electronic media. Where possible electronic data collections, data products and results in electronic formats, will be made available through the IRIS Data Management System following acceptance by the IRIS Data Products Working Group.

EXSEDE Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment - Outstanding student opportunity in the computational sciences!
Want to learn more about high performance computing and the exciting digital resources that are available to research scientists for free? Interested in joining a cohort of students that can provide mutual support in academic endeavors?

Apply to become an XSEDE Scholar today!

XSEDE, the Extreme Science and Engineering Discovery Environment, is the most advanced, powerful, and robust collection of integrated digital resources and services in the world. It is a single virtual system that scientists and researchers can use to interactively share computing resources, data, and expertise. XSEDE integrates the resources and services, makes them easier to use, and helps more people use them.

You can become involved in XSEDE, too, if selected as a Scholar.
This year-long program for U.S. students from underrepresented groups in the area of computational sciences will provide opportunities to learn more about high performance computing and XSEDE resources, network with cutting-edge researchers and professional leaders, and belong to a cohort of student peers to establish a community of academic leaders. In particular, the focus is on the following underrepresented groups: African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, and women.

XSEDE scholars will receive a travel grant to attend the XSEDE12 conference in Chicago (July 15-19, 2012) and participate in at least six online sessions throughout the year. Undergraduate participants will be encouraged to consider future graduate studies and research careers. Both graduate and undergraduate students will gain support through in-person and online community activities. Accepted Scholars will have the option to apply to participate in the program the following year.

XSEDE Scholars will:
- Attend the XSEDE12 conference in Chicago, July 15-19, through travel grants.
- Meet other XSEDE Scholars in special sessions at XSEDE12.
- Participate in at least six online activities with other Scholars during the year (technical training, content-based and mentoring webinars).
- Network with leaders in the XSEDE research community.
- Learn about research, internships, and career opportunities.

The XSEDE Scholars Program is directed by Richard Tapia, Rice University professor and recent National Medal of Science recipient, and managed by Alice Fisher, Rice University.
Apply now:
Underrepresented minority undergraduate or graduate students, studying at research institutions, who are interested in the computational sciences, are especially encouraged to apply. U.S. citizens and permanent residents only are eligible for the program.
