Funded research positions for PhD students in Parallel Computing

Funded research positions for PhD students in Parallel Computing
at the Research Group of Scientific Computing
Faculty of Computer Science
University of Vienna, Austria

Founded in 1365, the University of Vienna is among the oldest
universities in Europe and is the largest teaching and research
institution in Austria. In the past, the Nobel Prize has been awarded
to nine scientists that are linked to the University of Vienna through
either teaching or research.

The Research Group Scientific Computing focuses on research in
programming paradigms, languages, compilers and software
infrastructures for scientific computing to support users in the
process of solving increasingly complex compute- and data-intensive
problems in science and engineering on high-end parallel and
distributed computing platforms. The group is involved in several
national and international research projects in this area. The working
language of the research group and the PhD program is English.

Applicants, preferably with background in parallel computing, are
expected to have research interest in one or more of the following
– Programming models and languages for parallel architectures
– Compilers and runtime systems
– APIs and development tools for GPU-based architectures
– Performance modeling, optimization, and auto-tuning

Applicants must hold a master’s degree (or equivalent) in computer
science or other related areas. Programming skills in C/C++ and/or
Java are required. Fluency in English (written and spoken) and
interest in writing up and presenting research results completes the
applicant’s profile.

Applications should be submitted electronically and should include a
short statement of research interests, CV, copy of diploma thesis, and
the name of at least one reference that may be contacted for
additional information.

Please submit your application to Prof. Dr. Siegfried Benkner
(siegfried.benkner [at] univie [dot] ac [dot] at).

Application review will begin immediately and the available positions
will remain open until filled.
