This project is part of an international collaboration between Griffith University, Dalhousie University in Canada and Purdue University in USA on parallel Data Warehousing and OLAP for Beowulf cluster type parallel machines. A 128 processor cluster at Griffith is currently being installed for this project. For more details about the project, see http://www.cit.gu.edu.au/hpcvis/ and http://www.cgmlab.org. This is a full time, fixed-term position (three years). An appointment will be made at the level of Research Fellow Level 1 or 2 based on the successful candidate's qualifications and experience. The successful candidate can be located at either the Nathan or Gold Coast campus of Griffith University.
- Chief system architect, responsible for a code base of approximately 80,000 lines of C++/MPI code.
- Responsible for organising, extending and maintaining the code base within a cvs repository.
- Responsible for coordinating the work of several programmers.
- Participate in research on new parallel data warehousing and OLAP methods.
- Participate in publication of results from above research.
Annual Salary: Level 1 $43,901 to $51,642; Level 2 $56,284 to $66,839. Salary package including 17% employer superannuation contribution: $51,364 to $60,421 and $65,852 to $78,202 respectively.

PhD scholarship: Parallel Computing for Bioinformatics (3 years)
Applications are invited for a full-time PhD scholarship in the area of Parallel Computing for Bioinformatics. The scholarship is worth AU$16k per annum for three years. This PhD scholarship is co-funded between Griffith University (www.griffith.edu.au) and the Queensland Parallel Supercomputing Foundation (QPSF, www.qpsf.edu.au/) for research into parallel algorithms and parallel software for Bioinformatics. Research will involve work on parallel code for multiple sequence alignments (Clustal XP, http://clustalxp.cgmlab.org) and other Bioinformatics applications. The research is of an interdisciplinary nature and will be done within an international team from Australia, Canada, USA, and Europe (see http://www.cit.gu.edu.au/hpcvis/ and http://www.cgmlab.org). The successfull applicant will have a solid background in Computer Science and an interest in research that spans the development of larger parallel software packages, algorithmic research, and interaction with researchers in the Biosciences. Applicants should have a good academic record and be willing to work in a multidisciplinary field. 
Application Process: Send CV, transcripts, two letters of reference, and samples of research and development work to Professor Frank Dehne, http://www.dehne.net
