Responsibilities/Job Description

Prospective candidates will be engaged in research towards the vision of the research group being to consider a new architecture framework that is believed to scale into the future addressing the challenges of end of Moore's Law and an application landscape being data centric rather than compute centric. This architecture framework drives the research in many projects including the European Processor Initiative and projects carried out with industrial partners. There are ample opportunities for prospective candidates to highly interesting research in this environment getting ready for the next stage in the candidate's academic/ industrial career.

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.
