ADVANCED SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING RESEARCH (ASCR) PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:
The Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Science - Headquarters is looking for a dynamic, innovative, seasoned executive to lead the Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR), which comprised of two subprograms. The Computational Research and Partnerships (Research) subprogram underpins DOE's world leadership in computational science by supporting fundamental research in applied mathematics, computer science, high-performance networks, computational partnerships (SciDAC) and educational programs.
In addition, the Advanced Computing Technology component of the Research program is comprised of co-design initiatives focused on design and development for next generation extremely heterogeneous supercomputers; emerging technologies such as quantum and neuromorphic computing; and distributed computing ecosystems coupled with the development of applications and systems software to produce new hardware technologies and testbeds that will be deployed in the beyond exascale era. The High Performance Computing and Network Facilities subprogram supports the design, deployment, and operations of forefront computational and networking user facilities to meet critical mission needs. ASCR operates three high performance computing (HPC) user facilities: the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), which provides high performance computing resources and large-scale storage to a broad range of SC researchers; and the two Leadership Computing Facilities (LCFs) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and Argonne National Laboratory (ANL), which provide leading-edge high performance computing capability to the U.S. research and industrial communities. ASCR's high performance network user facility, the Energy Sciences Network (ESnet), operated by LBNL, delivers highly reliable data transport capabilities optimized for the requirements of large-scale scientific research across the Department.
As the Associate Director, Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research you will:
Serve as an international expert in the areas of research and the scientific user facilities supported by the Office's program. Formulate program goals, strategic directions, priorities, and plans for the Office, factoring in advice provided by the scientific advisory committee, as appropriate.
Formulate, direct, implements, administer, evaluate, and defend programs and policies necessary for the efficient implementation of a complex, comprehensive program in advanced scientific computing and computational science research which encompasses the diverse areas of applied mathematics, computer science and physical sciences. Prepare complex reports, papers, and policies on subjects covering areas of research and the scientific user facilities to be used by a variety of individuals and/groups.
Develop the budget requirements for activities at national laboratories, universities, and other research institutions. Assist the head of the organization in formulating budget requests and defending budget requests through DOE, the Office of Management and Budget, the Office of Science and Technology Policy, and Congressional committees.
Integrate the efforts of the program elements, particularly the elements that support research with those that support the design, construction, and operations of instrumentation and the scientific user facilities. Integrate the program with other organizational programs; other DOE programs; and other Federal research programs such as those of the National Science Foundation. Assure effective interagency planning, coordination, and evaluation of programs that cut across agencies.
Represent the head of the organization on matters concerning the areas of responsibility in a variety of situations. Provide interpretations of the organization and DOE regulations, policies, and technical facts while engaged in meetings with Federal government officials, national laboratory directors, Congressional committees, and other public and private institutions. Maintain regular contact with the head of the organization and other senior level managers; maintain frequent contact with assistant secretaries, office directors and their representatives, counterparts in other Federal agencies, Congressional leaders, DOE field offices, contractors, university, and other research groups including foreign institutions.
