High Performance Computing  (HPC) is becoming ever more important as a tool in many domains, therefore the TU/e is setting up a new HPC & AI service for research and education. This service includes local and cloud solutions, but also uses national and international computing facilities.

For the TU/e HPC & AI Team we are looking for a proactive, service-minded and self-driven HPC Application Support Engineer who will help us build and professionalize this new and innovative service. Do you want to rise above yourself, in your profession and as a person? Do you want to be challenged every day? At the TU/e, scientists and students continuously create the unthinkable. These creative minds expect you to offer them a solution for tomorrow that doesn’t exist today.

You will closely work with researchers, students of all departments and TU/e institutes. You have HPC infrastructure engineering knowhow, but your main focus and interest is on the application and workflow side. You will work in a team of highly motivated experts and can help us shape the future of our university, scientists and students.

What are your responsibilities:

  • Profile and optimize compute jobs from researchers and students;
  • Advise on application workflows and infrastructure choices;
  • Work together with vendor support engineers and TU/e IT professionals;
  • Benchmarking and administration/accounting of workloads;
  • Training and communication for end-users.


  • Strong communication and consulting skills on senior level and customer-oriented and service-oriented;
  • Experience and high affinity with scientific environments where research is key;
  • HPC Applications expertise (such as Ansys, Matlab, Siemens, OpenFoam, etc…);
  • HPC Infrastructure knowledge (job schedulers, cluster management, hardware infrastructures, HPC cloud services);
  • Scientific domain knowledge (such as physics or mechanical engineering);
  • You speak fluent in English. Ability to speak Dutch is an added-value.


  • Working at an inspiring campus with excellent work facilities where we work for the benefit of humanity and where you have plenty of room for personal development and growth;
  • The salary is in accordance with the Collective Labor Agreement of the Dutch Universities with a maximum of € 5.127 gross per month, depending on education and work experience;
  • An attractive package of fringe benefits, extra holiday allowance 8% in May, end-of-year bonus of 8.3% in December and 41 holidays per year.
