2 PhD studentships in Programming and Design of Low-power Heterogeneous Multi-Core Systems

The University of Edinburgh and ARM invites applications for two PhD studentships in the general area of heterogeneoous multi-cores. These positions are supported by ARM as part of the ARM Research Centre of Excellence at U.Edinburgh.  
These fully funded PhD positions are open to students of **all** nationalities.  
There is a wide range of topics covered by the centre and includes (but is not limited to):
  • Mapping and scheduling for low power on Heterogeneous Multi-Processing
  • Programming for next generation CPU and GPGPU systems
  • Software and hardware to making multi-processing accessible to programmers
  • Parallelism discovery and automatic parallelisation of sequential programs
  • Compilation for low power
  • Compilers and runtime for next generation ARM architectures
  • Data-centre scale parallelism
  • Hardware assistance in detection of non-data race free concurrent programs
  • Security between cloud and terminal
  • High performance low power micro-architecture
Suitable candidates will have a strong first degree in Computer Science and a strong interest in parallel programming, optimizing compilers, runtime systems, computer architecture, security or machine learning.  The exact topic of the PhD depends on the candidate's interests.  We are looking for the brightest minds to pursue research in a cutting-edge arena.
The start date is flexible.
Candidates are encouraged to contact Michael O'Boyle to informally discuss the project further. More information on our work can be found at: 
Formal application will then be through the School's normal PhD application process:
