A number of research associate positions are now open at the Center for Advanced Computational Technology of the University of Virginia at NASA Langley Research Center, Hampton, Virginia. Applicants should have a degree in engineering, computer science, or applied mechanics; and experience in one of the following areas: a) high-fidelity modeling of spacecraft structures; b) computational material modeling of polymeric composites and functional materials; and c) engineering applications of multimedia, virtual reality, or computational intelligence (fuzzy logic, neural networks, and evolutionary computations). Only applicants with excellent academic record will be considered.

The appointment will be for one year, renewable up to three years, with the University of Virginia at NASA Langley Research Center. The salary is dependent on the experience and capability of the individual. While in residence the research scientists will work closely with a team of University of Virginia staff and NASA scientists who are currently pursuing the development of advanced analysis and design systems for future aerospace vehicles.

Extensive computational facilities are available for the research staff of the Center. These include the following computers at NASA Langley: an eight-processor CRAY Y-MP running UNICOS is available for interactive and batch processing; a cluster of eight IBM RS/6000 model 58H workstations running AIX in a DCE/DFS environment; a 48-node IBM SP2 is available for research under the High Performance Computing and Communications Program; a 72-node Intel Paragon is available for parallel applications outside the HPCC Program. The Center also has access to a number of computers outside Langley including two CRAY C-90 vector supercomputers at NASA Ames; a cluster of Silicon Graphics (SGI) workstations at Ames; a 160-node IBM SP2 at Ames; and parallel systems at JPL/CALTECH, the University of Ilinois at Urbana-Champaign, the University of California at San Diego, CRAY Research at Eagan, MN, and the DOD High Performance Computing Center at Cewes, MS. The Center staff have access to numerous workstations, servers (including SUN SPARCstations, IBM RS/6000's, SGI ONYX and Hewlett Packards) and personal computers (Macintosh and IBM compatibles). Also, access to advanced laboratories, such as the Data Visualization and Animation Laboratory (DVAL) and the GEOmetry LABoratory (GEOLAB) within the information Systems Division (ISSD) of NASA Langley is available.
