Research Associate Posts in the Centre For Novel Computing (5 posts)

The Centre for Novel Computing (CNC) (see
is an inter-disciplinary research group with a focus on (parallel) High
Performance Computing (HPC). It has HPC research tracks in applications
and algorithms (both numeric and non-numeric), compilation, and
run-time/operating systems, and is about to undergo a significant
expansion. Up to five posts, associated with EPSRC and EC Framework IV
funded projects, are now available in the Centre, and we would welcome
applications from people with expertise in any of the following areas:

Operating Systems:

Two operating system posts are available in a European NUMA architecture
project. The aim of the project is to utilise the unique features of new
distributed shared memory hardware (based on Pentium processors) by means
of a lightweight operating system (Arena,
to give optimal application performance.

The posts will suit applicants with operating systems internals experience and
an interest in novel high-performance operating systems and architectures.
The posts will involve collaboration with other operating systems,
compiler and applications groups in Britain and continental Europe.

Parallelising Compilers:

This post might focus on various aspects of compiling code to exploit
parallelism. Recent compiler work within the CNC has concentrated on
transformations and strategies for directive-based, source-to-source
program restructuring, and the interaction between high-level and low-level

Performance Engineering:

This post is associated with research into the implementation and
performance evaluation of real-world applications on state-of-the-art
parallel computers, including an SGI O2000 and a prototype European
supercomputer. There is a strong emphasis in the CNC on transferring expert
programmer techniques for performance improvement into automated tools,
such as the compiler.

Parallel programming expertise in a high level language, such as FORTRAN or
C/C++, (using directives, message-passing or thread-based approaches) would
be an advantage.

Parallel Numerical Algorithms:

This post is associated with a project that involves the design and
analysis of new parallel algorithms for the computation of a number of
(dense) matrix functions, such as the square root, the sign function etc.,
that occur in important applications in Science and Engineering. It will
be funded by an EPSRC grant held jointly with Professor N.J.Higham in the
Department of Mathematics.

A background in Numerical Linear Algebra and expertise in parallel
programming in a high level language, such as FORTRAN, would be an


The posts are tenable for varying periods, between one and three years in
the first instance, at a salary of between 15,159 pounds and 19,371 pounds,
depending upon experience and qualifications, on the RA 1A scale. Informal
