Research positions at the Real-Time Systems Laboratory, Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna

The Real-Time Systems Laboratory of Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna (http://retis.sssup.it), one of the leading research groups in Europe in the field of real-time and embedded systems, is offering post-degree and post-doc research positions in the area of Operating System support for time-sensitive applications on multi-core and many-core platforms. We look for passionate researchers that wish to build a strong academic and industrial curriculum.

The candidate will design and realize innovative mechanisms for the allocation of resources and scheduling of massively parallel applications on many-core and heterogeneous platforms. The research activities will range from designing
proper ad-hoc interfaces between scalable real-time applications and the Operating System, to realizing mechanisms internal to the OS kernel with the necessary level of efficiency, scalability and the support for the timing constraints of the applications, whenever present. The candidate will have the opportunity to experiment with a many-core AMD 48-core platform, with a traditional architecture, and/or with the prototype Intel Single-Chip Cloud Computer platform (Intel SCC), with a Network-on-a-Chip architecture without cache coherency. In alternative or addition, the candidate may work on a simulator platform for tile-based many-core systems.

More information is enclosed in the attached document.
