Postdoc Position, Exascale Computing, Switzerland


A PostDoc position is available in the group Advanced Computing
Laboratory at the Institute of Computational Science (ICS) in Lugano,
Switzerland. The position is part of the project "EXA2CT - EXascale
Algorithms and Advanced Computational Techniques" funded under the EU
FP7-ICT programme.
The successful applicant will work on the development of a code
generation and autotuning framework for parallel stencil computations
on modern microarchitectures. The project is conducted together with
academic and industrial project partners from Europe. The EXA2CT
project brings together experts at the cutting edge of the development
of solvers, related algorithmic techniques, and HPC software
architects for programming models and communication. It will take a
revolutionary approach to exascale solvers and programming models,
rather than the incremental approach of other projects. We will
produce modular open source proto-applications that demonstrate the
algorithms and programming techniques developed in the project, to
help boot-strap the creation of genuine exascale codes. The goal of
the subproject is to increase the arithmetic intensity of iterative
stencil-type computations by reusing the data for the computation of
subsequent time steps as soon as possible, thus maximizing the amount
of reusable data and minimizing noncompulsory data transfers to the
core-local memories.
The successful candidate will extend the PATUS stencil framework and
will collaborate with algorithmic and programming models partners
within the EXA2CT project.
