Fully-Funded ARM-Sponsored PhD in Compilers and Microarchitecture

*** The Project ***

Applications are invited for a PhD student to work on performance, energy-efficiency or reliability in future many-core systems. The exact area of research is flexible and can be defined by the student, but those interested in automatic vectorisation will be particularly welcome. The position is fully-funded by ARM and the successful applicant will work in close collaboration with an industrial mentor. He or she will join a growing team of Postdocs and PhD students working in compilers and architectures for future many-core systems. The position is within the Computer Architecture Group at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory.

We seek candidates with a strong background in Computer Science (1st class honours degree or equivalent) with an interest in compilers, computer architecture or runtime systems. Experience in parallel programming would be advantageous. Candidates should provide evidence of relevant work, where possible, and must demonstrate a desire to perform internationally-leading research and to publish in the top computer architecture and compiler conferences.

*** Eligibility ***

This position is fully-funded for applicants from the UK / EU who qualify for the University of Cambridge Home / EU fees. For other (overseas) applicants, part funding is available. Applicants who are unsure of their status are advised to get in contact to clarify.

*** Application ***

Students wishing to pursue a PhD at the University of Cambridge are required to submit a short research proposal outlining the work they intend to carry out during the PhD.
