Contact name: Jose Daniel Garcia
Institution: University Carlos III of Madrid
Email: josedaniel.garcia@uc3m.es
Type of applicant: Postdoc
Application deadline: 25/02/2015
Contract Duration: 3 years
Start: April 2015
Salary before taxes: 2,272.46 euros (14 yearly payments)

Description:

The European REPHRASE project (funded by Horizon2020 program) has as a goal the development of new techniques, tools, and methodologies for developing data intensive applications in the C++ programming language, targeting multi/many-core heterogeneous architectures combining both CPUs and GPUs.

In this context, the Project is offering a position for a postdoctoral researcher for developing new techniques and supporting tools for parallel patterns identification, definition and discovery, as well as for catastrophic failures detection (with special attention to race conditions and deadlocks).

In particular, the main research line for this position:

  • Catastrophic failures detection in C++ parallel applications. Special focus given to race condition detection and deadlock detection.

Selected candidate will also be expected to participate in the following tasks:

  • Parallel patterns identification, definition, and discovery for data-parallel and task parallel solutions in the context of the C++ programming language, as well as the design of domain specific languages to express those patterns. Besides, pattern implementation under diverse shared memory parallel programming models.
  • Application of software development methodologies for parallel software in real applications in medical image processing domain.

Postdoc: Physical Design Tools for Three-Dimensional (3-D) Integrated Circuits and Systems – Finite Element Method

Contact name: Milan Mihajlovic
Institution: School of Computer Science, The University of Manchester, Manchester, UK
Email: milan@cs.man.ac.uk
Type of applicant: Postdoc
Application deadline: 25/02/2015

Description:

The University of Manchester: Advanced Processor Technologies Group

The University seeks to appoint a research associate in the School of Computer Science to work on an interdisciplinary project shared between the Advanced Processor Technologies (APT) and the Nano Engineering and Storage Technologies (NEST) groups.

You will conduct research related to the development and implementation of a simulation tool for the analysis and design of power distribution networks in emerging 3-D IC technologies taking into consideration thermal effects.

The post will be hosted by the Nano Engineering and Storage Technologies (NEST) group. The NEST group is a vibrant community of interdisciplinary researchers working on a variety of topics including magnetic recording materials, nano-technology applications, numerical modelling and simulation, and actively collaborating with the National Graphene Institute (NGI) and industry partners.

FAST — Find a Suitable Topology for Exascale Applications

The fastest computers listed in the Top 500 are able to execute 1016 FLOPS. The next generation of computer clusters will move into new dimensions and be a hundred times faster. Such exascale computers will not only have significantly more nodes, but considerably more cores per node. It is predicted that this increase of CPU performance will not be matched by other resources resulting in an imbalance between CPU performance on the one hand and I/O performance on the other hand [Dongarra10].

Postdoc on Dynamic Resource Allocation and High-Performance Computing at LIRMM (France)

Dynamic Resource Allocation is regarded as a promising technique to better exploit processing resources in embedded and high performance computing systems. In embedded systems, techniques such as task migration, frequency scaling are currently being investigated as means to lower energy consumption, under timing constraints. Similarly, smart job schedulers are proposed in supercomputing so as to achieve power-awareness thereby increasing energy efficiency.

HPC-Wire: Europe Launches Ultrascale Computing Initiative

NESUS – or Network for Sustainable Ultrascale Computing – formed earlier this year to study the challenges of ultrascale computing. Launched with about 30 European partner countries, the cross-community initiative has grown to include 39 European countries and six countries from other continents. The goal: to produce a catalogue of open source applications for large-scale complex systems two to three orders of magnitude larger than today’s systems.

The Future Of Ultrascale Computing Under Study

Some two hundred scientists from more than 40 countries are researching what the next generation of ultrascale computing systems will be like. The study is being carried out under the auspices of NESUS, one of the largest European research networks of this type coordinated by Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M).

Ultrascale systems combine the advantages of distributed and parallel computing systems. The former is a type of computing in which many tasks are executed at the same time coordinately to solve one problem, based on the principle that a big problem can be divided into many smaller ones that are simultaneously solved. The latter system, in both grid and cloud computing, uses a large number of computers organized into clusters in a distributed infrastructure, and can execute millions of tasks at the same time usually working on independent problems and big data.
