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

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 (
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

Traineeships and Fellowships at ECML

The European Centre for Modern Languages (ECML) recruits trainees twice a year for a paid training period of six months. 
The main role of the ECML, which is a body of the Council of Europe, is to serve in general the implementation of language policies and the promotion of innovative approaches to the learning and teaching of modern languages.
The trainees will be responsible for precise tasks in a specific field. In order to do so, four specialist areas are proposed corresponding to four different types of traineeships

EUSPA logo design contest is open

The European GNSS Agency, operational arm of the European Commission for the EU Space Programme, is on the hunt for forward thinking graphic designers and visual artists from across the EU to craft its new EUSPA logo. Five finalists, one winner and up to €15k! Ready to break the mould? Proposals should be submitted by 14 August.
In the near future, the GSA should become the European Union Agency for the Space Programme (EUSPA) and amplify its scope of activities. This agency shall be entrusted with important tasks related to the EU satellite navigation systems, Galileo and EGNOS, the establishment of synergies for space data related to navigation and Earth observation, and also the setting up of governmental applications for telecommunications, space surveillance, security of infrastructure and cybersecurity. To mark this evolution, the GSA has decided to rely on the talent of European graphic designers and visual artists, be it students, young professionals or established graphic desi…
