Scholarship Description: The Computer Architecture and Languages team at Halmstad University is developing a novel modeling and simulation language called Acumen.
The goal is to create a language that can significantly accelerate innovation in the design and production of cyber physical systems. We are seeking a post-doctoral researcher interested in developing several different back-ends for an Acumen compiler.
This includes developing compilers that generate code for Habanero, LiME, X10, and Cilk, developing benchmarks to evaluate these platforms, and carrying out a series of systematic performance evaluation of the languages and of these target platforms.
The postdoc researcher will belong to the Computer Architectures and Languages team within the Laboratory for Computing and Communication (CC-lab) and the Centre for Research on Embedded Systems (CERES). The research leader and postdoc supervisor will be Professor Walid Taha.
