Halmstad University, School of Information Technology

We are looking for a reseacher engineer in information technology with special focus on designing heterogeneous many-core architectures

Job Description

The position is funded by the “Towards Next Generation Embedded Systems: Utilizing Parallelism and Reconfigurability” project, which is a Indo-Swedish Collaboration project funded by Vinnova, Sweden and Department of Science and Technology (DST), India.

The technical objectives of our research agenda are to:

  • identify and characterize key properties (performance, programmability, flexibility and determinism) for compute devices in the embedded domain,
  • develop methodologies for efficient execution of applications that cater to a diverse set of user constraints (such as performance, energy, area foot-print and cost) and are independent of the target implementation,
  • develop architectural solutions that will provide a natural support for smart parallelism and execution schedulability in applications and
  • validate the design flow with a diverse set of real-world use-cases.

Key-concepts involved to achieve these objectives include: domain specific languages; heterogeneous manycore architectures; and stream processing.


The suitable candidate has recently received, or is expecting to finalize within a few months, a Master’s degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or closely related fields. Particular strength or experience in parallel computer architectures and parallel program­ming is very welcome.

Only those who are or have been admitted to third-cycle courses and study programs at a higher education may be appointed to doctoral studentships (The Higher Education Ordinance chapter 5, Section 3).

A person meets the general entry requirements for third-cycle course and study programs if he or she:

  1. has been awarded a second-cycle qualification having obtained a university degree,
  2. has fulfilled the requirements for courses comprising at least 240 credits of which at least 60 credits were awarded in the second-cycle, or
  3. has acquired substantially equivalent knowledge in some other way in Sweden or abroad. (The Higher Education Ordinance chapter 7, section 39)


The duration of the employment is six months starting from 1st January 2018 -30st June.
