The Computer Systems Lab (CSL) PhD positoins

Unread postby UCERD.COM » Thu Mar 28, 2013 3:45 pm

The Computer Systems Lab (CSL) at the Computer and Communication Engineering Department at the University of Thessaly, Greece is offering a number of full-time PhD positions in Computer Engineering / Computer Sciences, funded via the FP7 FET-Open SCoRPiO project (http://scorpio-project.inf.uth.gr/). The applications will be under continuous evaluation.
Start & Duration: 1 June 2013, 3 years

The Project:
SCoRPiO envisions a new computing paradigm that exploits uncertainty to design systems that are energy-efficient and scale gracefully under hardware errors. This vision is based on the observation that not all computations and not all data of an application are equally critical, requiring to be performed or maintained at 100% accuracy or correctness. SCoRPiO seeks to exploit this observation and to relax reliability requirements for the hardware layer by allowing a controlled degree of imprecision to be introduced to computations and data. It will research methods that allow the system- and application-software layers to synergistically characterize the significance of various parts of the program for the quality of the end result and tolerance to faults, and to manage their execution at runtime.

PhD Description:
Successful candidates will become part of a vibrant research group strongly active in research on system software for high-performance, distributed and embedded computing, system architecture, and CAD tools for architectural synthesis. Their main task will be to perform research on significance-aware system software and hardware, especially on programming models, compilation tools, runtime mechanisms, architectures and hardware design.



Prerequisites/requirements:

· Preferably an MSc (or equivalent) in computer engineering/science with excellent grades from a leading university. Outstanding candidates with a BSc (or equivalent) will also be considered.

· Strong knowledge and prior hands-on experience in system software (compilers, operating systems, runtime mechanisms). Strong knowledge of hardware design and computer architecture.

· Highly motivated to push the state of the art, perform challenging development work, and publish in top conferences and journals. Ability to take initiative, prioritize and work under deadlines.

· Team player with good communications skills, willing to work in a multidisciplinary team.

· Excellent English language skills (writing, presenting).

· Willingness to relocate to Volos, Greece.


What to submit (electronically):

· To apply for these positions, email the following to Prof. Nikolaos Bellas:

· CV (and, if possible, full transcript of records)

· Three letters of recommendation from people familiar with your academic work. Letters of recommendation should be kept confidential and can be sent after the application.

· Copies of your BSc and MSc theses (if applicable).
For further information, feel free to contact:
Prof. Christos Antonopoulos (cda@inf.uth.gr)
Prof. Nikolaos Bellas (nbellas@inf.uth.gr)
Prof. Spyros Lalis (lalis@inf.uth.gr)

Postdoc Position to work on the RoMoL Project

Applications are invited for a postdoc position in Architecture and Runtime Systems at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC-CNS). We are offering a postdoc position for a period of 5 years (with possibility of extension) in the context of the ERC-funded project Riding on Moore’s Law (RoMoL).

RoMoL is a 5-year project funded by the European Union that will start in April 2013 and that involves around 15 researchers. The main objective is to design new parallel architectures built using a higher level of abstraction. Instead of expressing algorithms as a sequence of instructions, we will group instructions into higher-level tasks that will be automatically managed by the architecture. We envision a holistic approach where the parallel architecture is partially implemented as a software runtime management layer, and the reminder in hardware. The hardware gains the freedom to deliver performance at the expense of additional complexity, as long as it provides the required support primitives for the runtime software to hide complexity from the programmer. The programming model will be OmpSs, which is being intensively developed at BSC, and is built on top of our Mercurium compiler and Nanos++ runtime system (http://pm.bsc.es/).

This project involves research in microarchitecture, runtime systems, compilers and programming languages. Prof. Mateo Valero is the principal investigator (PI) of the project. For a complete list of publications of the PI, please visit: www.bsc.es/cv-mateo.

Main Responsibilities
· Design of brand new power optimizations and resilience enhancement solutions for OmpSs.
· Definition of new static analysis techniques based on compiler analysis to take advantage of codes' critical path.
· Analysis and optimization of the runtime system and its interaction with highly parallel vector architectures.
· Design of new programs' phase analysis techniques to improve runtime malleability and flexibility
· Coordination of small and medium size research projects
· Supervision of PhD students

Main Skills
· Resiliency, compilers, and low power optimizations
· Performance Analysis and Tuning of Parallel Applications
· Operating Systems: Runtime systems, Scripting, Linux
· Programming: C/C++, Open MP/MPI, OmpSs, CUDA, Open CL, etc.
· Computer architecture: multithreaded processors, vector processors, resource sharing, NoCs, hardware support for reliability, low power and runtimes.

Qualifications and Experience
· PhD in Computer Science or similar (or expected to graduate in the current year)
· Postdoctoral experience
· Ability to take initiative, prioritize and work under set deadlines pressure
· Ability to work independently and in a team
· Capacity to interact and build strong relations with other research groups
· Excellent written and verbal communication skills in English
Interested candidates should submit their CV, a cover letter, and a recommendation letter to the following email address, indicating the offer reference Postdoc-RoMoL-RT in the subject message: rrhh@bsc.es.
