Postdoctoral Position in Computer Architecture at Chalmers University of Technology

Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden is inviting excellent candidates to apply for a postdoctoral associate position in computer science. The funds for this fellowship are available for three years. Applications are welcome before April 30, 2019.

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering is a joint department at Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg, with activities on two campuses in the city of Gothenburg. The department has around 240 employees from over 30 countries. Our research has a wide span, from theoretical foundations to applied systems development. We provide high quality education at Bachelor’s, Master’s and graduate levels, offering over 120 courses each year. We also have extensive national and international collaborations with academia, industry and society.

Information about the project

The European Commission is funding the European Processor Initiative (EPI) to co-design, develop and bring to the market a European low-power microprocessor. This technology, with drastically better performance and power, is one of the core elements needed for the development of the European Exascale machine. Chalmers is one of the partners who will contribute to the design of a RISC-V based accelerator. To this end, we are now looking for experts in computer architecture and VLSI design to participate in the project.

The project will be run in the Division of Computer Engineering within the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. The High-Performance Computer Architecture Group, within the Division of Computer Engineer, under the leadership of Professor Per Stenstrom, is conducting research on design principles for the next generation computer systems. To ease the programming task and yet achieve high and predictable computational performance at as high an energy efficiency as possible is an important objective in the knowledge generation process that the group contributes with. To this end, the group has a solid track record and a long-term focus on contributing to design principles of parallel computers. Four faculty members, two postdocs and thirteen PhD students are engaged in research in computer architecture.

Major responsibilities

You will be part of a team to design the memory subsystem of a processor tile consisting of a RISC-V based processor and accelerators.Your major responsibility as postdoc is to do research and development tasks in the European Processor Initiative - an EC funded project. The position is meritorious for future research duties within academia as well as industry/the public sector.

Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of two years (1+1).


To qualify for the position of postdoc, you must have a doctoral degree in Computer Engineering or Electrical Engineering with expertise in Computer Architecture. The degree should generally not be older than three years.You also have hands-on experience with RTL design for SoC or FPGAs. You have experience with modeling of processor and memory system architectures. Industrial experiences are meritorious.

You are expected to be somewhat accustomed to teaching, and to demonstrate good potential within research and education.The position requires sound verbal and written communication skills in English. Chalmers offers Swedish courses.

Chalmers offers a cultivating and inspiring working environment in the dynamic city ofGothenburg.
