Postdoctoral researcher in computer architecture

Chalmers University of Technology

Sweden

August 15, 2022

Description

The research to be performed in the context of this position is part of a large European project - European Processor Initiative (EPI) - where we are working towards the development of the future generation advanced processors. In order to push the boundaries for performance and efficiency, architects are now moving away from general-purpose processors and focusing more on domain- specific architectures (or accelerators). The research in this project is along that direction focusing on memory and processing solutions for different domains including Machine Learning.

Information about the Computer Architecture Research Group The Computer Architecture Research Group, within the Division of Computer Engineering, under the leadership of Professor Per Stenstrom, is conducting research on design principles for next generation computer systems. To ease the programming task and yet achieve high computational performance at as high an energy efficiency as possible is an important objective in the knowledge generation process that the group contributes with. To this end, the group has a solid track record and a long-term focus on contributing to design principles of parallel computers. Four senior faculty members and some twenty postdocs and Ph.D students are engaged in research in Computer Architecture. The group is a founding partner of the HiPEAC European Network of Excellence and engaged in several EU and national projects with strong ties to industry, among them the European Processor Initiative.

Major responsibilities As a Postdoctoral at Chalmers, you have a two-year employment to carry out the research. The research will be own research but also in collaboration with the rest of the team members also in the form of supervision PhD and MSc students, as well as with the other members of the EPI project. In addition, there are possibilities for helping with the teaching tasks. All these activities will help the postdoc towards the preparation for the future industrial or academic career.

Qualifications To qualify for the position of postdoc, you must hold a doctoral degree in Computer Architecture, awarded no more than three years prior to the application deadline (according to the current agreement with the Swedish Agency for Government Employers). You should be highly motivated, self- propelled, energetic, independent and with a well-developed analytical problem-solving ability. As a person, you are empathetic, loyal and have high ethical standards. Your communication skills in English (literal as well as oral) are of a high quality.
