Scientific Researcher for HPC Resource Management and Scheduling (m/f/d)

100%, TV-L E13, with the option for a PhD

The Chair for Computer Architecture and Parallel Systems (CAPS) offers a scientific researcher position (100% TV-L E13) in the area system software research for High Performance Computing on the path the Exascale. The work will focus on the development of new resource management and job scheduling techniques that map parallel applications to target systems in a most energy efficient manner. Work will include design, implementation and evaluation of novel techniques for capturing and fulfilling dynamically changing application and system requirements, the participation in standardization techniques to ensure a long-term viability of the research as well as active dissemination via publications and conference participation.

CAPS is part of TUM’s department of Informatics, one of the leading CS departments in Europe. We focus on a wide range of aspects of computer architecture – from edge and IoT devices to HPC and cloud systems, from AI accelerators to quantum computing systems – as well as the needed system software needed to extract a maximum of efficiency form the respective architectures. The latter includes work on programming models, operating systems, scheduling, tools, I/O as well as application optimization.       

Required Qualifications:

·         Above-average MS degree with emphasis in informatics or a related field.

·         Knowledge in parallel and/or distributed systems and their programming approaches.

·         Basic understanding of HPC Systems and their modes of operation.
