Qualification Details

You have a PhD degree in a field related to Computer Architecture and Performance Optimization. You are 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) has to be excellent.

You are expected to be somewhat accustomed to teaching, and to demonstrate good potential within research and education. Swedish is not a requirement but Chalmers offers Swedish courses.

Responsibilities/Job Description

Join a team of leading-edge researchers in the development of a homegrown European computing infrastructure based on open source software and hardware technologies. This is an opportunity for you to gain specialist knowledge in the development of high performance runtimes, compilers and performance analysis tools and train the next generation of HPC practitioners and participate in supervision of research activities.

The work consists of integrating advanced scheduling and cache management features into OpenMP. The work also includes maintaining performance and debugging support for two in development RISC-V implementations. You are expected to co-lead workpackages in two European projects.  You are also expected to participate in teaching duties in the master program on high performance computing systems (MPH PC) and in the supervision of PhD students.Another important aspect involves collaboration within academia and with society at large. The position is meritorious for future research duties within academia as well as industry/the public sector.

Contract terms

Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of two years (1+1).

About the 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, four postdocs and ten 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.The computer systems unit currently participates in two EuroHPC projects: eProcessor ( European, extendable, energy-efficient, energetic, embedded, extensible, Processor Ecosystem) and TEP (The European Pilot). Both projects will develop high performance computing ecosystem based on RISC-V. Among other tasks, Chalmers is responsible in both projects for the development of OpenMP runtime extensions.
