Tiến sĩ Three PhD Positions in Energy-Efficient Computing Systems
Nội dung Học bổng
Uppsala University is an international research university focused on the development of science and education. Our most important assets are all the individuals who with their curiosity and their dedication makes Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting work places. Uppsala University has 41.000 students, 6,500 employees and a turnover of SEK 5,900 million.
at the Department of Information Technology, Division of Computer Systems.
The Department of Information Technology (www.it.uu.se) holds a leading position in research as well as teaching at all levels. The department has about 200 employees, including 80 senior faculty and 80 PhD students. More than 3000 students are enrolled annually.
The positions will be in the computer architecture group (UARThttp://www.it.uu.se/research/uart), collaborating with the Uppsala Programming for Multicore Architectures Research Center (UPMARC, www.upmarc.se).
Description of the subject area: Data movement in modern computer systems consumes a significant portion of total power and is a significant performance bottleneck. These projects will address power-efficiency in data movement across all levels of the system (architecture, runtime, and compiler) by leveraging our leading work in analyzing, modeling, and design of multicore and heterogeneous systems. The two research projects will address the memory system at the microarchitectural level (intelligent data placement and movement in hardware) and at the runtime/compiler level (heterogeneous data movement and optimizations). Please see http://www.it.uu.se/research/group/uart/openings for more details.
Qualifications required: Candidates should have a Master of Science in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or equivalent. Experience in software development, parallel programming, performance evaluation, and a good understanding of computer architecture are important. The applicant should be highly self-motivated, able to work well in a diverse group, comfortable giving and receiving constructive criticism, and have strong abilities for critical thinking and structured work. These competencies are as important as the technical qualifications. Please seehttp://www.it.uu.se/research/group/uart/applying_phd for more details.
The position is for a maximum of five years and includes departmental duties at a level of at most 20% (typically teaching) as well as course studies. You will be expected to teach in Swedish or English. Excellent skills in spoken and written English are an absolute requirement.
Working in Sweden: Sweden is a fantastic place for living and working. Swedes are friendly and speak excellent English. The quality of life is high, with a strong emphasis on outdoor activities. The Swedish working climate emphasizes an open atmosphere, with active discussions involving both junior and senior staff. All PhD students and Postdocs are full employees, with standard salaries and five weeks of paid holiday. Spouses of employees are entitled to work permits, and, after being awarded a PhD degree, non-EU-citizens are eligible for permanent work permits. Healthcare is free after a small co-pay and the university subsidizes athletic costs, such as a gym membership. The parental benefits in Sweden are among the best in the world, including extensive parental leave (for both parents), paid time off to care for sick children, and affordable daycare.
The application must include a short (1-2 page) statement of the applicant’s motivation for applying for this position, including 1) the candidate’s research interests, 2) relevant qualifications for the position, 3) reasons for wanting to obtain a PhD, 4) and reasons for choosing this specific project. The applicant is encouraged to include a short personal statement as well. Applications without statement of motivation seriously risks not to be considered. The application must also include a CV, degrees and grades (translated to English or Swedish), a copy of Master thesis (or a draft thereof), publications, other relevant documents, and the earliest possible starting date. Letter(s) of recommendation and contact information for references should be provided directly by the references through the online application system. (Email to email@example.com with the position number in the subject.) The department is striving to achieve a more equal gender balance and female candidates are particularly invited to apply.
Information about the position can be given by Associate Professor David Black-Schaffer, Ph. +46 471 6830, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications are due by 22 February 2015, UFV-PA 2015/191. Please submit using the link below.
