Experience in FPGA, HW/SW co-design, and code-level analysis are important.

Responsibilities/Job Description

The overall goal of HERO is to provide a framework that enables development of optimized parallel software, automatic mapping of software to heterogeneous hardware platforms, and provision of automatic hardware acceleration for the developed software.

HERO represents a substantial step towards an innovative solution for systematic and efficient development of complex heterogeneous systems. The research conducted in HERO is expected to provide substantial advances to the current state of the art in (i) model-based development and resource analysis of parallel software, (ii) pre-runtime code-level resource analysis, and (iii) automatic hardware acceleration.

The project is to develop methods for synthesizing accelerators of kernels that can be used for heterogenous integration of CPU and FPGA. The applicant will collaborate in developing code-level analysis tool for automatic generation of hardware accelerators for FPGA.

The researcher will be hosted by the HERO group ( and will work closely with PhD students and senior researchers in the group.
