The Global Computing Lab (GCLab), in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Tennessee has an open position for a Research Associate I. The GCLab, headed by Dr. Michela Taufer, focuses on various aspects of high-performance computing (HPC) and its application to the sciences. GCLab engages in the design and testing of efficient computational algorithms and adaptive scheduling policies for scientific computing on GPUs, cloud computing, and volunteer computing. Additional information about GCLab can be found at https://globalcomputing.group. RESPONSIBILITIES:
This position will be supporting and conducting research projects in the field of high-performance computer architectures. The proposed work will involve the design and implementation of software solutions for hierarchal schedulers in HPC systems, including performance measurement for a set of scenarios that mimics realistic workflows.
Primary work tasks will involve research on how features of a user-level, highly-configurable scheduler like Flux can best be leveraged to maximize workflow performance. Duties involve literature review, conducting experiments and optimization, data check and analysis, and project management (e.g. timetabling and meeting project milestones)
The Research Associate I Position will provide preliminary results and write discussion of concepts for submission to granting agencies and foundation and also assist in the preparation of manuscripts to publish research results in peer-reviewed technical journals and conference proceedings.
