Computer Architecture PhD Student to work on the RoMoL Project per al BSC

JOB DESCRIPTION: 
Applications are invited for PhD student positions in Computer Architecture 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 started 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/).
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)
  • Computer Architecture: vector processors, superscalar architectures, networks on chip
  • Operating Systems: Linux, runtime systems, scripting
  • Performance Analysis and Tuning of parallel applications
  • Programming: C/C++, VHDL/Verilog, Assembler, Open MP/MPI, CUDA, etc.
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-Arch14 in the subject message: rrhh@bsc.es.
Closing date: 15/01/2014

Webinar: Estratègia, tecnologia i globalització: escenari de futur

Aquest seminari és el tercer del Cicle Catalunya Clústers “ESTRATÈGIES PER ENCARAR EL FUTUR”, organitzat per ACCIÓ i pels 29 clústers del programa Catalunya Clústers. 
La crisi de la covid-19 és un gran accelerador. El que passaria en deu anys, passarà en deu mesos. En la turbulència, la constant de creixement l’asseguren les empreses que generen i acumulen dades, coneixement i talent.
La tecnologia es converteix en el major driver econòmic de la història, el més ràpid i el més contundent. Imprescindible per a la creació de riquesa i la distribució de prosperitat, inclús per a la nostra salut i supervivència.
Davant d’aquest context les empreses han de reposicionar-se creant un ecosistema, activant equips d’alt rendiment i actuant com a organitzacions ambidextres que exploten el negoci actual i alhora exploren nous horitzons.
La ponència anirà a càrrec de Xavier Ferràs, Professor titular del Departament d’Operacions, Innovació i Data Sciences d’ESADE.
