Description of the transfer of knowledge

 

The ToK vectors are three fellows each of them hired by PUB for 24 months, according to the Gantt chart:

Each expert will have a clear defined profile:

         F1 - researcher (>4 years of experience) having experience in the design, use and administration of PC clusters for numerical (modelling/simulation) applications;

         F2 - researcher (>4 years of experience) having experience in design, installing, use and administration of Grid computing  systems for numerical (modelling/simulation) applications;

         F3 - researcher (>10 years of experience) having experience in HPC - High Performance Computing technology applied in CSE - Computational Science and Engineering.

 

The ideal candidate for the F3 position should have more than 10 years experience in HPC research. All candidates must have a solid background in SE (Software Engineering) and F3 also in QA (Quality Assurance). Competencies in nanoelectronics are not required, beind covered by the local staff. Previous mobility of all types: geographic, intersectorial, inter-disciplinary, and involvement in international research projects are merits. The overlap of fellowship periods allows a smooth transition between fellowships. The proposed project is a feasible one, because FP6/IST Marie Curie actions provided in EU abundant human resources, highly trained in HPC. A short stay of only 6 months of a foreign early stage researcher produced recently a very promising impact on the local research environment. Therefore, in order to fulfil the objective of the project, the planned recruitment schedule can be modified by the Project Management Unit.
