Research Associate / PhD student
(subject to personal qualification employees are remunerated according to salary group E 13 TV-L)
In a collaborative project for novel design methodologies and heterogeneous manycore architec-tures for future 5G communication standards and beyond the Chair of Compiler Construction at the Institute of Computer Engineering is looking to fill a fixed-term position as of the 1 July 2019.
Research area: Programming models and compilers for 5G applications
Terms: 100% of the fulltime weekly hours, the position is limited to 31 May 2022 (with the option to be extended).
The period of employment is governed by the Fixed Term Research Contracts Act (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz – WissZeitVG).
The project is a collaboration with National Instruments, the Chair of Processor Design headed by Prof. Akash Kumar and the Vodafone Chair of Mobile Communications Systems headed by Prof. Gerhard Fettweis.
At the Chair of Compiler Construction we have the long-term vision of shaping the way future electronic systems are to be programmed. This includes efficiently programming emerging het-erogeneous manycore architectures, where we have a long trajectory in dataflow programming models and associated optimizing compilers. In this context, we are looking for a highly motivat-ed PhD student to develop novel mathematical abstractions and methods that make it possible to solve larger, more complex programming problems. This compiler research will touch upon top-ics from parallel programming models (e.g., dataflow models of computation, compilers and language design), discrete mathematics (e.g., graph theory), and runtime systems. The student will work closely with researchers working on reconfigurable architectures, manycore processors and multiple layers of the programming stack.
We aim at attracting the best talent in the respective research fields and expect the following:
An outstanding university degree (master's/ diploma or equivalent) in computer science, mathe-matics, electrical engineering or a relevant area.
First research experience, preferably in compilers, parallel programming, embedded systems, applied mathematics (e.g., graph algorithms), optimization techniques.
Sound knowledge in software development.
An independent, target- and solution-driven work attitude.
Inter- and multidisciplinary thinking.
An integrative and cooperative personality with excellent communication and social skills.
Fluency in English - written and oral.
Knowledge about 5G and other wireless communication standards is a plus.
You will join a team of enthusiastic researchers who pursue creatively their individual research agenda.
Informal enquiries can be submitted to Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jeronimo Castrillon, Tel +49 (351) 463 42716; Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications from women are particularly welcome. The same applies to people with disabilities.
