Bristol University. Research Associate in ENergy Efficient Adaptive Computing with multi-grain heterogeneous architectures (ENEAC)

Research Associate Senior/Research Associate in ENergy Efficient Adaptive Computing with multi-grain heterogeneous architectures (ENEAC)
Based in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Bristol University, you will investigate the possibility of creating energy efficient computing systems based on CPU+FPGA+GPU hybrids.
In particular the post will focus on developing energy efficient adaptive systems in which tasks are assigned to the computing resource that minimizes overall energy requirements. These systems will vary their voltage, frequency at run-time to adapt to the requirements of the application. Predicting optimal execution resources during application execution and minimizing overheads during state transitions are key milestones required for the success of the project.
