    3.     如何改善平台的虚拟度,应用映射和异构平台未知工作负载的能源调度;

    4.     通过硬件原型和仿真展示成果。

    现已创建了一个基于FPGA可配置的多核平台,此平台带有L1和L2缓存,可用于研究对称、不对称和异构多核配置。

录取要求:

    计算机或电气工程等相关专业博士生;

    博士课题涉及HDL设计;

    熟练掌握大型数据库;

    掌握现代计算机组成原理,FPGA的CAD流程;

    熟悉Linux核心,具有Xilinx’s EDK tools 或 Altera’s SoPC Builder 的开发经验。

    申请人需准备求职信、个人简历和三封推荐信。申请开放时间为2015年12月30日,此项目从2016年春季开始,为期一年(根据实际情况,存在延期的可能)。

Original Information

Postdoctoral Research opportunity at Simon Fraser University

Project Title: Runtime Software, Performance Monitoring and Architectures for energy and performance efficiency on FPGA-based Heterogeneous Systems 

Project Description:  Heterogeneous Computing Solutions are now incorporated in platforms ranging from embedded products to the Data Centre.  Many of these platforms are required to run multiple workloads that may not be known at design time. 

Our goals are to: 1) Investigate how to improve the energy and compute efficiency of heterogeneous architectures through improved system integration and memory hierarchy access for multicore, manycore, and distributed systems. 2) Investigate how to provide system visibility to the programmer and the scheduler for heterogeneous platforms. 3) Investigate how to improve platform virtualization, application mapping, and resource scheduling for unknown workloads sharing a heterogeneous platform. 4) Demonstrate our ideas using hardware prototyping and emulation.

To perform this research, we have created a configurable, FPGA-based, multicore platform with L1 and L2 caches that can be used to investigate symmetric, asymmetric, and heterogeneous multicore configurations. 

Qualifications:  We are looking to hire a highly qualified and motivated researcher with the vision to recognize the research potential of our existing platform as well as the possible future extensions. A successful candidate will have a PhD in Computer/Computational Science, Electrical or Computer Engineering, and/or a closely related field. 

Qualified applicants should have completed a thesis research project that includes an HDL design component and be comfortable navigating large code bases. They should also be knowledgeable as to modern computer architecture and have experience with a CAD flow from one of the major FPGA vendors. Familiarity with the Linux kernel and experience with either Xilinx’s EDK tools or Altera’s SoPC Builder is preferential, but not required. 

Location:  Simon Fraser University’s Burnaby Campus is situated in a spectacular mountain-top setting just outside of Vancouver, Canada, a vibrant, cosmopolitan city, which consistently rates as one of the most desirable cities in the world in which to live. Vancouver is nestled between the ocean and the dramatic mountains of western Canada's coast range. Outdoor activities such as skiing (including the world-class resort of Whistler/Blackcomb), hiking, mountain biking, and boating are all within easy reach of the university.

To Apply : Please send a targeted cover letter expressing your suitability for the position along with a complete CV and a list of at least 3 references. 

Ideally, the candidate will be able to start as early as Spring 2016 for a period of 1 year, with the possibility of an extension. Applications will be reviewed starting December 30th and will continue until the position has been filled. 

Contact Information: This research is being performed as part of a collaboration between the Reconfigurable Computing Lab and researchers in the School of Computing Science.
