Two New HIPERFIT PhD Scholarships
The HIPERFIT research center now seeks two new excellent PhD students for working within the area of High-Performance Functional Programming.
For information about the application procedure, and the scholarships in general, please consult the general announcement. The application deadline is April 22, 2014 (23:59, timezone: LINT = UTC+14).
Below follows some more detailed information about the scholarships.
PhD scholarship(s) in High-Performance Functional Programming
The PhD student will be working in the Research Center for Functional High-Performance Computing for Financial Information Technology (www.hiperfit.dk). The PhD scholarship is funded by the Danish Council for Strategic Research and will be carried out at DIKU in formal collaboration with the Department of Mathematical Sciences and the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen and several finance it-partners in the Copenhagen area.
The objective of the PhD project is to develop, implement and evaluate techniques related to executing, efficiently and safely, high-level, functional specifications of both numeric and symbolic computations on modern, highly parallel computational platforms such as multi- and many-core CPUs, GPGPUs and FPGAs.
The candidate must - in addition to the qualifications listed above - have a solid academic background in the relevant areas of computer science, as demonstrated by academic courses and project/thesis work related to several of the following areas: Functional programming, programming language theory, and compilers. Experience with either high-performance computing, mathematical finance, domain-specific language or parallel algorithms is desirable, but not required.
The position is available from 1 July 2014 or as soon as possible thereafter.
