Computer Microarchitecture

Funding is available for a PhD student to work under the supervision of Dr Aris Efthymiou in the area of computer systems micro-architecture. The studentship begins in 2011; start date is flexible.

The project will investigate key aspects of future massively-parallel single-chip processors, such as the design of shared-memory hierarchy and on-chip network. Work at a lower level will explore innovative circuit-level techniques for efficient implementation of key units in these processors.

Suitable candidates will have an excellent academic track record (strong first degree and/or an MSc in a related field) and a good understanding of computer architecture. Students with background in computer science or electronics/VLSI are eligible. The exact topic of the PhD is flexible depending on the candidate’s interests.

This is an opportunity to join one of the best systems groups in Europe working on computer architecture, compilers, circuit design. We are part of the School of Informatics, the largest and best Informatics research centre in the UK according to the last two Research Assessment Exercises.

Informal enquiries may be made to Dr Aris Efthymiou. Formal application is through the School’s admissions process
