Information about the research group
The Computer Architecture Research Group, within the Division of Computer Engineering is conducting research on design principles for next generation computer systems. To ease the programming task and yet achieve high computational performance at as high an energy efficiency as possible is an important objective in the knowledge generation process that the group contributes with. To this end, the group has a solid track record and a long-term focus on contributing to design principles of parallel computers. Four senior faculty members, four postdocs and ten Ph.D students are engaged in research in Computer Architecture. The group is a founding partner of the HiPEAC European Network of Excellence and engaged in several EU and national projects with strong ties to industry, among them the European Processor Initiative.
For more than five decades, the speed at which computers get things done has been able to increase exponentially over time thanks to the fact that it has been possible to increase the number of transistors on a computer chip at the same pace. At this point, it is becoming challenging to fit more transistors on each chip, and at the same time the computing tasks are becoming increasingly data intensive, with everything from self-driving vehicles to analysis of massive data sets. This questions conventional wisdom how computers are built and calls for new solutions. In today's technology, data is sent back and forth between the memory and computer chips, which costs both latency and processing power (energy). The topic of position will be related to our research activities which investigate high performance and energy-efficient solutions and focused on memory systems.
Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of 5 years. During this time you are expected to obtain a PhD degree. This encompasses 20% departmental duties (typically teaching), 20% studies for credits towards your PhD and 60% research.
To qualify for this PhD student position you must have a master's level degree corresponding to at least 240 higher education credits in Computer Science or Computer Engineering or in a related field, with a good foundation in computer architecture. As a person, you are empathetic, loyal and have high ethical standards. You are also highly motivated, energetic, independent and have the ability to find solutions to complex problems.
Since the research work involves hardware design and development of simulation models, good hardware design and programming skills are required. It is meritorious if you have taken courses in operating systems and compilers. The position requires sound verbal and written communication skills in English. Swedish is not a requirement but Chalmers offers Swedish courses.
Chalmers offers a cultivating and inspiring working environment in the coastal city of Gothenburg .
