Careers

Software Engineer, CCM
Full-time|New York, NY

CCM seeks a full-time software engineer and scientific programmer to help build, improve, and support high-quality, open-source software libraries relating to efforts within the center.  Areas of interest include scientific computing, partial differential equations, neuroscience, imaging, machine learning, statistics, signal processing, fast algorithms, and mathematical libraries. For some of the packages currently under development, see:
 
https://www.simonsfoundation.org/flatiron/software/?type=40178
 
The Software Engineer will:
 • implement, test and optimize mathematical, statistical, and machine-learning algorithms, in languages such as C, C++, Python, MATLAB, and Fortran
 • develop interfaces, packages and installers, documentation, user support, and training courses;
 • develop user interfaces and collaborate with SCC and other centers within Flatiron and the larger scientific community and
 • lead and improve open-source software practices.
 
The Software Engineer will report to a Research Scientist at CCM and will join a growing team of developers within CCM and the other centers across Flatiron Institute. The position will be based, and have a principal office, at the Simons Foundation in New York City.

Summer Research Assistant/Associate, CCM
Full-time|New York, NY

Applications are invited for paid, full-time research internships at the Center for Computational Mathematics (CCM) in all our active areas of research. CCM is one of five centers of the Flatiron Institute, an internal research division of the Simons Foundation. Our mission at CCM is to create new mathematical approaches, algorithms and software to advance scientific research in multiple disciplines, often in collaboration with other Flatiron Centers.

Tremendous opportunities exist at the intersection of mathematics, computer science, statistics, and their scientific applications, with the lines between theory, algorithm development and software implementation often blurred. Beyond the creation of new simulation and analysis methods, a major goal of CCM is to make these methods available to the scientific community. The Center also hosts an array of meetings, workshops and conferences, serving as a focal point for the field internationally.
