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.
