Start date: Immediately after the signature of the contract
Duration: 12 months, extensible
salary: Competitive, including benefits
Description:

The Computer Architecture and VLSI (CARV) Laboratory of the Institute of Computer Science at Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas (FORTH), Crete Island, Greece, offers a full-time Postdoctoral Researcher position in the areas of Computer Architecture and Parallel Algorithms, and in particular in any of the following topics:

  • Memory and Cache Architectures
  • Low Power Computer Architecture
  • Distributed Data Structures
  • Java Concurrency Library
  • Energy optimized Data Structures

The position will be supported by a recently funded national project which is being executed from October 2012 to September 2015. The goal of the project is to develop a power-efficient Java Virtual Machine and Runtime Environment and Concurrency Library for a prototype non-cache-coherent many-core architecture. The selected applicants will be offered a contract for one year, with possibility of renewal.

Applicants must have:
  • A PhD in computer science, computer engineering, or related field
  • Documented research record in Computer Architecture or Parallel Algorithms and, preferably, in some of the topics listed above
  • Excellent verbal and written English communication skills;
  • Willingness and ability for cooperative work in the context of a research team.
Desired skills:
  • Good knowledge of memory architectures; and/or
  • Experience with low-power hardware development; and/or
  • Parallel and distributed programming; and/or
  • Experience with Java/Concurrency; and/or
  • Strong mathematical background.

Graduate Research Assistant Position in Computer Architecture and/or Parallel Algorithms


Institution: Institute of Computer Science (ICS), Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH)
Start date: Immediately after the signature of the contract
Duration: 1-2.5 years
Location: Heraklion, Crete, Greece
Description:

A Graduate Research Assistant position in the areas of Computer Architecture and/or Parallel Algorithms, to start in 2012-2013, is now available in the CARV Laboratory of the Institute of Computer Science, at FORTH, Heraklion, Crete, Greece. The position is associated with the project “GreenVM”, funded by the NSRF. The position addresses early stage researchers willing to pursue graduate studies at a University (e.g. Univ. of Crete).

The goal of the project is to develop a Java Virtual Machine for manycore non cache coherent architectures. Specifically, research will involve the design and implementation of a library of locality-conscious concurrent data structures built on top of such architectures, and/or power-aware metrics and counters which will be used to evaluate the energy efficiency of the system.

Candidates are expected to have a degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or equivalent, and a broad range of skills including understanding of theoretical computer science, good programming skills, language implementation skills, and fluency in English.

Applicants must submit the following documents:
  • Detailed Curriculum Vitae
  • Statement of purpose
  • Official transcripts of grades from all academic institutions of higher education listed in his/her application, certified copies of degrees, or/and certifications of fulfilment of the required obligations for entering a graduate programme
  • Copies of titles in English language
  • Names of three referees who, upon request, can provide recommendation letters
  • Copies of any research papers or other significant work by the applicant
