I think you need to specify how many processors each job wants in your
submission file. For example:

  request_cpus = 4

will request 4 processors (cores/threads). The default is 1. You
typically need to request CPUs equal to the number of threads a
multi-threaded program will create. If this works then you should look
into dynamic slots:

Alternatively, you can try configuring the program to run
single-threaded and keep the default static slots.
