Oferta de trabajo: PhD student positions in Runtime Systems at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center

13/03/2013

Oferta de trabajo

Applications are invited for PhD student positions in Runtime Systems at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC-CNS). We are offering PhD student positions for a period of 4 years (with possibility of extension) in the context of the ERC-funded project Riding on Moore's Law (RoMoL).

RoMoL is a 5-year project funded by the European Union that will start in April 2013 and that involves around 15 researchers. The main objective is to design new parallel architectures built using a higher level of abstraction. Instead of expressing algorithms as a sequence of instructions, we will group instructions into higher-level tasks that will be automatically managed by the architecture. We envision a holistic approach where the parallel architecture is partially implemented as a software runtime management layer, and the reminder in hardware. The hardware gains the freedom to deliver performance at the expense of additional complexity, as long as it provides the required support primitives for the runtime software to hide complexity from the programmer. The programming model will be OmpSs, which is being intensively developed at BSC, and is built on top of our Mercurium compiler and Nanos++ runtime system (http://pm.bsc.es/). The student will extend the OmpSs model and runtime with low power and resiliency features.

This project involves research in microarchitecture, runtime systems, compilers and programming languages. Prof. Mateo Valero is the principal investigator (PI) of the project. For a complete list of publications of the PI, please visit: www.bsc.es/cv-mateo.

 

Main Skills and Qualifications

  • MSc in Computer Science (or expected to graduate in the current course)
  • Operating Systems: Runtime systems, Scripting, Linux
  • Resiliency, compilers, and low power optimizations
  • Programming: C/C++, Open MP/MPI, OmpSs, CUDA, Open CL, etc.
  • Performance Analysis and Tuning of Parallel Applications

Personal Skills

  • Ability to take initiative, prioritize and work under set deadlines pressure
  • Ability to work independently and in a team
  • Capacity to interact and build strong relations with other research groups
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills in English

Interested candidates should submit their CV, a cover letter, a recommendation letter, and the BSc/MSc grades to the following email address, indicating the offer reference Students-RoMoL-RT in the subject message: rrhh@bsc.es.
