Postdoctoral researcher positions in Computer Architecture

Postdoctoral researcher positions in Computer Architecture


Information about the research group and the project
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 PhD 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
For more than five decades, the speed at which computers get things done has been able to increase exponentially over time thanks to the fact that it has been possible to increase the number of transistors on a computer chip at the same pace. At this point, it is becoming challenging to fit more transistors on each chip, and at the same time the computing tasks are becoming increasingly data intensive, with everything from self-driving vehicles to analysis of massive data sets. This questions conventional wisdom how computers are built and calls for new solutions. In today's technology, data is sent back and forth between the memory and computer chips, which costs both latency and processing power (energy).

The area of these positions will be related to our research activities which investigate high performance and energy-efficient solutions pertaining to the topics of memory systems and runtime systems.

You have a PhD degree in Computer Architecture. The degree should generally not be older than three years. 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) are of a high quality.

Swedish is not a requirement but Chalmers offers Swedish courses.
