3 open PhD Positions in Modeling and Optimizations for Next Generation Computer Systems

The Department of Information Technology at Uppsala University announces three open PhD positions within the Research Group of Computer Architecture (UART) within a project on modeling and optimization for the next generation computer systems. The project will leverage UART’s world- leading work on analyzing and modeling resource sharing (cache, bandwidth, and power) in multicore and heterogeneous systems, in order to enable optimizations at the application, runtime and hardware level.

UART undertakes advanced research in power and memory system modeling, and focuses on developing tools and techniques that provide accurate application insight with low runtime overhead. Over the past years we have developed unique approaches to understanding applications' behavior in multicore systems (Cache and power modeling: StatCache and Green Governors; Behavioral measurement: Cache Pirating, Bandwidth Bandit and PowerSleuth; and, Phase detection: ScarPhase). These techniques enable us to rapidly predict performance and power consumption for a specific application running on a specific architecture and can guide us towards more efficient solutions.

The focus of this PhD project is to combine these techniques to enhance modern runtime systems, analyze the efficiency of application software, and guide reconfigurations and optimizations. These optimizations are becoming increasingly important for achieving good performance and low power as computers scale to higher core counts and become more heterogeneous and more power-constrained.

The successful candidates will become part of a large dynamic research group (15 PhD students, 1 post doc, 1 visiting researcher, and 3 professors) with strong contacts to industry (Ericsson, ABB, ARM, Intel, etc.) and a history of successful startups. The work will be carried out
in close collaboration with the UPMARC interdisciplinary 10-year multicore research program (http://www.upmarc.se) within the Dept. of IT at Uppsala University, which ranked among the top 100 universities in the world.

Candidates are expected to have an MS-level degree in computer science/systems with a good background in computer architecture and performance. Fluency in English (both verbal and written) is required.
The application should explicitly state why this area of research is of interest to the candidate and how his or her background is a good fit for the position.

Sweden is a fantastic place for living and working. Swedes are friendly and speak excellent English. The quality of life is high, with a strong emphasis on outdoor activities. The Swedish working climate emphasizes an open atmosphere, with active discussions involving both junior and senior staff. As a PhD student you are regarded as a regular employee with a respectable salary, including a five weeks of paid holiday. Healthcare is free after a small co-pay and the university subsidizes athletic costs, such as a gym membership. The parental benefits in Sweden are among the best in the world, including extensive parental leave (for both parents), paid time off to care for sick children, and affordable daycare.

Applications are due no later than March 25, 2013.

PhD student positions in Runtime Systems

Unread postby UCERD.COM » Sun Mar 10, 2013 6:41 am

Applications are invited for PhD student positions in Runtime Systems at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC-CNS). We are offering PhD student positions for a period of 4 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/). The student will extend the OmpSs model and runtime with low power and resiliency features.



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: http://www.bsc.es/cv-mateo.



Main Skills and Qualifications

· MSc in Computer Science (or expected to graduate in the current course)

· Operating Systems: Runtime systems, Scripting, Linux

· Resiliency, compilers, and low power optimizations

· Programming: C/C++, Open MP/MPI, OmpSs, CUDA, Open CL, etc.

· Performance Analysis and Tuning of Parallel Applications

Personal Skills

· 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, a recommendation letter, and the BSc/MSc grades to the following email address, indicating the offer reference Students-RoMoL-RT in the subject message: rrhh@bsc.es.

Postdoc fellowships at INRIA/IRISA Rennes microarchitecture

Postdoc fellowships at INRIA/IRISA Rennes microarchitecture and/or compiler
Institution: INRIA/IRISA Rennes
Url of advertisment: http://www.irisa.fr/alf/dal

In the context of the ERC advanced grant DAL (2011-2016), http://www.irisa.fr/alf/dal, we are opening two postdoc positions (up to 24 months).

Short description of the DAL project.
We envision that, around 2020, the processor chips will feature a few complex cores and many (may be 1000’s) simpler, more silicon and power effective cores.
In the DAL research project, we will explore the microarchitecture techniques that will be needed to enable high performance on such heterogeneous processor chips. Very high performance will be required on both sequential sections -legacy sequential codes, sequential sections of parallel applications- and critical threads on parallel applications -e.g. the main thread controlling the application. Our research will focus on enhancing single process performance. On the microarchitecture side, we will explore both a radically new approach, the sequential accelerator, and more conventional processor architectures. We will also study how to exploit heterogeneous multicore architectures to enhance sequential thread performance.

Postdoc researchers are expected to exhibit a large autonomy in their research. They will have to define their research program in collaboration with André Seznec and the researchers in the DAL project.
