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.
