Openings

 


We are looking for top candidates to join our research team (http://www.ece.cmu.edu/~sld/) as Research Assistants starting Spring or Fall 2015. Exceptional candidates with a Ph.D. recently completed will also be considered for an open Post-doctoral position starting immediately.

Research Assistant (RA) in Embedded Systems Main responsibilities are related to two on-going projects on power management and optimization of massively integrated multicore platforms where communication happens via the network-on-chip approach. The main goal of these projects is to address some fundamental issues of designing effective and highly scalable control algorithms for power and thermal management in multi-domain multicore systems where communication happens via the network-on-chip approach. These projects involve both HW and SW issues, developing new algorithms and optimization approaches, as well as prototyping work. This work is sponsored by prestigious funding agencies (NSF, SRC); direct interaction with outstanding mentors from companies like Intel, Mathworks, etc. offers ample opportunities for producing a high caliber Ph.D. thesis in this area. Candidates should have excellent analytical and communication skills, experience with C/C++/Matlab software development. Prior experience in systems and/or control theory and experience in using FPGAs/GPUs will provide an added advantage.

Research Assistant (RA) in Cyber-physical Systems Main responsibilities involve work on modeling, optimization, and control of cyber-physical systems with emphasis on embedded and biological applications. The on-going project that supports this position targets modeling and control of dense networks of bacteria for drug delivery and healthcare applications. This project involves highly interdisciplinary work with emphasis on algorithmic approaches for modeling and optimization of biological systems. This work is sponsored by prestigious funding agencies (NSF); direct interaction with outstanding collaborators from the experimental side offers ample opportunities for producing a high caliber Ph.D. thesis in this area. Candidates should have excellent analytical and communication skills, experience with C/C++/Matlab software development. Prior exposure in biological systems, and/or control theory will provide an added advantage.

Postdoctoral Associate Main responsibilities involve work on modeling, optimization, and control of cyber-physical systems with emphasis on embedded and biological applications. Candidates should have a PhD degree in electrical or computer engineering, computer science, or another relevant field (e.g., physics, applied mathematics, systems/computational biology), excellent analytical and communication skills, experience with C/C++/Matlab software development. Prior experience with complex system and network modeling, or FPGAs/GPUs will provide an added advantage.

Interested candidates in any of these positions should submit their questions directly to Prof. Radu Marculescu at radum@cmu.edu.
