Research & development - Leuven | More than two weeks ago
System architecture innovations are key to position imec for success in the fast-evolving workloads of tomorrow and to codesign imec’s process technology innovations with a system level value proposition. The Compute System Architecture Unit (CSA) at imec researches futuristic high-performance, energy-efficient and secure computer systems to extend imec’s semiconductor research leadership deep into the next decade. CSA is researching emerging workloads and their performance on heterogeneous computer architectures for next-generation Artificial Intelligence (AI). The team is responsible for the architecture definition of new CPUs, GPUs, machine learning accelerators, ... and the systems in which they are integrated.
We are looking for a researcher to contribute hands-on to the development of performance models for future supercomputer systems and their heterogeneous components, ranging from RISC-V CPU SoCs and machine learning accelerators, through emerging interconnects with in-network computing and advanced memory chips with near data processing. You will be responsible for developing analytical models that combine (micro)architectural parameters (the “hardware” parameters) together with an application profile (the “software” parameters) to accurately predict the performance and energy of next-gen computer systems at a scale beyond what is feasible with simulation. In close collaboration with algorithm researchers, performance analysis engineers and system architects, you will help to define the supercomputers of the future enabling artificial intelligence applications such as accessible personalized medicine.
The job requirements include but are not limited to:
We offer you the opportunity to join one of the world’s premier research centers in nanotechnology at its headquarters in Leuven, Belgium. With your talent, passion and expertise, you’ll become part of a team that makes the impossible possible. Together, we shape the technology that will determine the society of tomorrow.
We are committed to being an inclusive employer and proud of our open, multicultural, and informal working environment with ample possibilities to take initiative and show responsibility. We commit to supporting and guiding you in this process; not only with words but also with tangible actions. Through imec.academy, 'our corporate university', we actively invest in your development to further your technical and personal growth.
We are aware that your valuable contribution makes imec a top player in its field. Your energy and commitment are therefore appreciated by means of a competitive salary with many fringe benefits.
