University of Innsbruck, Austria - Doctoral and Postdoctoral Positions in Parallel Computing

Funded Research Positions for Doctoral Students and Postdoctoral Researchers in Parallel Computing

The Institute of Computer Science at the University of Innsbruck, Austria, invites applications for Phd students in the Distributed and Parallel Systems Group (DPS). DPS focuses on research that enables a high degree of easy-to-use and seamless automation for flexible collaborations and computations on a global scale. For our research we consider highly parallel and heterogeneous, dynamic, failure-prone distributed and parallel systems, services and resources. DPS enables new forms of science that are computation and data-intensive, distributed, collaborative, and multi-disciplinary. Our objective is to simplify the effective use of multiprocessor architectures and geographically distributed, heterogeneous systems, which will provide the basis for the next generation of Internet-enabled performance-oriented applications. DPS research should enable scientists to do faster, better or different research.

Your areas of interest should comprise:

* Application development and runtime environments for multi-core parallel architectures
* Performance analysis and debugging for parallel programs
* Programming languages and methods for multiprocessor architectures
* Program analysis and optimizations for parallel systems

Prerequisites: applicants must hold a master or equivalent degree in computer science as well as a working permit for the European Union

Profile of our group: DPS participates among others in the following EU projects: EU CoreGRID, EU EC-GIN, EU edutain@grid, EU Adaptive Services Grid, EU K-WF Grid, EU EGEE 1 – 3, SFB Aurora and Austrian Grid.

Language skills: English; Note that the working and study language is English. The entire course and research program is held in English only. There is no need to learn German for this position.

Location: University of Innsbruck, Innsbruck, Austria.

The City of Innsbruck, which hosted the Olympic winter games twice, is located in the beautiful surroundings of the Tyrolean Alps. The combination of the Alpine environment and the urban life in this historically grown town provides a high quality of living. The university has a long tradition dating back to the 16th century, and, with seven schools (Theology, Law, Economics and Social Sciences, Medicine, Humanities, Natural Sciences, Civil Engineering and Architecture), it offers a wide spectrum of research and teaching activities and interesting opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration. Besides, the Country of Tyrol strongly supports various initiatives in the IT domain.

Applications can be submitted anytime. There is no deadline.
