We invite applications for a post-doctoral research associate position in the D System project on compilers and tools for data-parallel programming. We are starting work on POEMS, a new DARPA-funded effort on an environment for end-to-end performance evaluation of large-scale parallel applications. This project is in collaboration with researchers at several other institutions. The compiler group at Rice will particularly be focusing on compiler-based techniques for constructing performance models of High Performance Fortran (HPF) programs. We will explore models at different levels of abstraction, from a detailed specification language to abstract analytical models.
This position will require research at the interface between parallelizing compilers and performance modeling of parallel programs and systems. The ideal candidate would possess proven research expertise in one of these areas, and some exposure to and interest in the other.
This is an opportunity to participate in challenging research on a timely problem, with the potential to have significant impact on current practice. The Rice parallel compiler group has a long and distinguished history of research on compilers and programming environments, with significant external impact on the practice of high performance computing. The group has a strong track record of technology transfer to industry.
This position is available immediately. The appointment will be for a period of two years, extendable to three years subject to funding availability and mutual interest. The annual salary range is US$50,000-$54,000. The position provides regular Rice University benefits except specific retirement benefits. Interested persons should send a resume, including the names of three persons who can provide letters of reference, to the following address (preferably by e-mail as ASCII or postscript):
