We are looking for candidates for an early stage researcher (ESR) position in the area of approximate and transprecision computing. The main focus of this research will be the study of variable- and mixed-precision computing techniques to improve energy efficiency. The proposed activities will include the study of advanced ML techniques and their integration into compilation toolchains (e.g., GCC and LLVM) and parallel runtime environments (e.g., OpenMP).
The ESR position is funded by a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action (more info in the call below), and it is associated with the Ph.D. Program in Data Science and Computation at the University of Bologna. The research activities will be conducted at the EEES Laboratory, lead by Prof. Luca Benini. The EEES Lab has a staff of more than 20 researchers and is involved in various research projects focused on ultra-low-power multi-core platforms and their applicative domains (e.g., near-sensor computing, biomedical systems, machine learning for IoT edge systems).
The main eligibility rules are the following:
- Mobility rule: max 12 months over past 3 years in the country of Beneficiary (counted at the date of the contract starting),
- ESR stage: max 4 years after the completion of their first master degree (no matter on the first master topic).
