Full Time

Applications are invited for a temporary post of a UCD Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 1 within UCD School of Computer Science.

The project aims to develop models, methods, algorithms, and software for optimization of the energy and performance of applications in modern highly heterogeneous and hybrid systems, used in HPC, Internet of Things, Smart Cities, and many other current and emerging digital platforms. The mainstream approach to energy optimization of computing is to optimize the execution environment rather than applications running in the environment. Our algorithms and methods will optimize applications, not executing platforms, aiming to find all their energy/performance Pareto-optimal configurations.

The expected improvements in energy and performance even for highly optimized state-of-the-art applications can be multi-fold. The methods and algorithms will be applied to a wide range of applications and platforms. This is a research focused role, where you will conduct a specified programme of research supported by research training and development under the supervision and direction of a Principal Investigator.

The primary purpose of the role is to further develop your research skills and competences, including the processes of publication in peer-reviewed academic publications, the development of funding proposals, the mentorship of graduate students along with the opportunity to develop your skills in research led teaching.

Fixed Salary: €39,131 per annum

Closing date: 17:00hrs (local Irish time) on the 31st of March 2022.

Applications must be submitted by the closing date and time specified. Any applications which are still in progress at the closing time of 17:00hrs (Local Irish Time) on the specified closing date will be cancelled automatically by the system.
