Research is intended to contribute to multiple externally sponsored projects in these spaces that are focusing on designing scalable systems software (e.g., operating systems, hypervisors, compilers, run-times) for a broad spectrum of architectures from node-scale (e.g., multicore/multi-socket SMP , Xeon/Xeon-Phi, ARM /x86, CPU / GPU ) to rack-scale (e.g., Scale-out processors, Firebox, The Machine). Research is also intended to contribute to sponsored projects in the space of concurrency control abstractions, protocols, and mechanisms for a broad range of architectures from multicore/multi-socket SMPs to clusters to geographically distributed systems.
The positions' responsibilities include:
- conducting independent research in these spaces
- developing publications for journals, conferences, and workshops, and presenting papers at conferences and workshops
- conducting technology transitions to production systems of sponsors (in relevant projects)
- developing research proposals for obtaining externally sponsored research
