The appointment will be in the School of Computer Science in the Advanced Processor Technologies Group. The group has research interests in advanced and novel approaches to processing and computation. This post will involve establishing the software infrastructure required to reach Exascale compute levels, in particular in terms of compiler and runtime system development and optimization, as well as performance monitoring and analysis.

You should have, or be working towards, a Ph.D. level qualification in parallel computing or compilers. Strong C/C++ coding skills and parallel programming experience are essential. You should be capable of working under your own initiative and leading a small research team, so excellent communication and organisational skills are also required.
