PROPHET-2: Abstraction and generalization of parallelization strategies for scientific and engineering application to be deployed in interconnected heterogeneous and reconfigurable platforms.

The project purpose is the study of strategies for building parallel applications in heterogeneous and/or reconfigurable platforms. The project focuses on practical cases of interest in engineering and industrial environments, including applications in the fields of fluid dynamics, material resistance or image processing. The objective is to improve and exploit programming tools and runtime systems for this kind of applications on highly-heterogeneous and distributed computing systems, maximizing portability and efficiency in terms of performance and energy.

Tasks of the post-doc researcher:

Lead project tasks related to the development of abstractions and programming tools for managing distributed systems with heterogeneous devices, including multi- and many-core systems, coprocessors (like GPUs) and/or reconfigurable systems (as FPGAs). Apply parallelization and optimization techniques on scientific applications described in the project summary. Dissemination of results and international promotion of the techniques and tools developed (presentations, tutorials in conferences, etc.)

Possibility to teach up to 80 hours per year in the Computer Science department, in order to get teaching experience.

Salary: 30.000 Eur. per year (before taxes).
Duration: 2 years. Starting Feb/Apr 2021

Deadline: Closed Apr 2021

Research group:

The Trasgo research group at the University of Valladolid, Spain, ( has been researching in parallel and high-performance computing for more than 15 years. It presents a wide experience and know-how, leading several research projects funded by national and regional competitive calls. It has also participated in several contracts with enterprises. The PhD students graduated by the group have found successful career opportunities in academia and industry.
