Postdoctoral Position in Computer Architecture Memory Systems and Machine Learning

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in computer science to join Uppsala University. This position is available for three years in the first instance. Applications are welcome before September 02, 2019.

This project will investigate the use of machine learning for memory system optimization both as a tool to optimize designs (offline) and to adapt to dynamic behavior (online). We welcome applicants with computer architecture backgrounds and/or machine learning backgrounds. The position is part of the Automating System SpeSific Model-Based LEarning (ASSEMBLE) project, which combines researches in machine learning, control theory, compilation, and architecture to develop new tools to support the use of machine learning across different fields. As a member of ASSEMBLE you will work with machine learning experts and researchers to understand how to apply and integrate probabilistic programming and neural networks for memory system optimization. The expected results are both approaches to using these techniques for better offline design (optimization, analysis) and the development of architectural designs that can support the execution of the algorithms at runtime to aid data placement decisions. The successful candidate will be expected to take an active role in advising PhD students. More information on the project can be found at

To qualify for an employment as a postdoctor you must have a PhD degree or a foreign degree equivalent to a PhD degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or equivalent. The PhD degree must have been obtained no more than three years prior to the application deadline. The three year period can be extended due to circumstances such as sick leave, parental leave, duties in labour unions, etc.

Candidates should have expertise in architecture and/or memory system design. The candidate must clearly document a high degree of self-motivation in the application. In addition, the applicant must be able to work well in a diverse group, comfortable giving and receiving constructive criticism, and have strong abilities for critical thinking and structured work. These competencies are as important as the technical qualifications.

Sweden is a fantastic place for living and working. Swedes are friendly and speak excellent English. The quality of life is high, witha strong emphasis on outdoor activities. The Swedish working climate emphasizes an open atmosphere, with active discussionsinvolving both junior and senior staff. Postdocs are full employees, with standard salaries and five weeks of paid holiday. Spouses of employees are entitled to work permits. Healthcare is free after a small co-pay and the university subsidizes athletic costs, such as agym membership. The parental benefits in Sweden are among the best in the world, including extensive parental leave (for bothparents), paid time off to care for sick children, and affordable daycare.
