P.h.D. position in hardware offload for managed language runtimes
Uppsala University
Managed languages (such as Java, Python, R and JavaScript) allow a high level of programming abstraction which allows rapid application development with fewer errors. Despite huge improvements in performance of managed languages lately (exemplified by Graal, JavaScript VMs), managed languages are still often slower than their compiled counterparts (e.g. C, C++ and Rust) due to extra checks and operations performed at run-time.

This project aims to address these performance issues by offloading run-time tasks to hardware. As a concrete example, consider recent hardware advances that allow tagging of memory with metadata. If the programming language can communicate the right metadata to hardware memory tags, some of the aforementioned checks and operations can be moved to hardware, where it can be performed more efficiently, and only be done in software as a last resort.

This requires hardware, execution environments and compilers to work together and shifting costs so that each component can play to its strengths.

As a consequence, we hope that more applications can be written in safe programming languages with high developer productivity, making a larger class of programs open to a larger class of developers, and making software more sustainable.

# Qualifications required:
Candidates should have a Master Degree (MSc or equivalent) in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or equivalent, or finishing the Master Degree in a near future. Candidates must have taken courses in the following areas: compilers, computer architecture, parallel programming. 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.

# Application:
The application must include a statement (at most 2 pages) of the applicant’s motivation for applying for this position, including the candidate’s research interests and how they will support this project, a description of the MSc thesis, and evidence of self-motivation and constructive teamwork. The application must include a CV, degrees and grades (translated to English o Spanish), a copy of the MSc thesis, publications (and specific descriptions of the candidate’s own contributions), and the earliest possible starting date. At least one letter of recommendation and contact information for references should be provided.
PhD Position in Architecture and OS for Memory Management
Uppsala University
The virtual memory system is the backbone of memory management in operating systems and has further evolved to efficiently support memory protection and isolation in cloud environments (both containers and virtualization). However, with the explosive growth of memory usage in applications and server memory capacity, the virtual memory address translation is suffering from slowdowns, which in turn slows down the entire system.

This project aims to address these performance issues by co-designing the operating system and hardware architecture for a more efficient virtual memory address translation. This project will work on designing hardware improvements for address translation along with efficient operating system support to activate the hardware improvements.

This project will implement the proposed hardware modifications in architectural simulators (e.g. gem5), and implement the operating system features on the Linux kernel. Furthermore, the hardware improvement could be prototyped based on open-source CPU (e.g. RISC-V) and evaluated with the operating system on FPGA.

The improvement of the virtual memory system will improve the performance and power efficiency of current CPUs and memory systems, and furthermore, offer even better performance/power efficiency for the servers with even larger non-volatile memory.

The topic of this internship will span across the whole memory subsystem, from the caches to the main memory and the non-volatile storage. Modern workloads manifest different characteristics and have various requirements in processing and memory power. You will identify the memory bottlenecks that future computing systems will face at each level of the memory hierarchy. Using architectural simulators, e.g. Gem5, you will explore if already proposed memory hierarchies can mitigate the memory wall and propose novel designs that can further improve the performance of the memory, in terms of bandwidth and latency. You will investigate the feasibility, area overhead and power savings of such approaches via experimenting with design tools and circuit simulators.


Your Responsibilities:
* Identify memory bottlenecks of real-world applications
* Explore and propose novel designs of memory hierarchies
* Implement and evaluate architectural optimizations in the memory subsystem

Requirements:
* Currently enrolled in a Bachelor, Master’s degree or PhD in computer science, computer architecture, software engineering or any related fields at a reputable university; or you graduated within the last six months
* Strong problem-solving and software development skills (C/C++, Python, etc.)

Accurate microarchitectural model tuning for a high-performance many-core server processor
Huawei
One of the major research directions at Huawei's Zurich Research Center (ZRC) is towards novel high-performance computer architecture solutions to deliver continued growth despite the end of Moore’s law and Dennard scaling. Accurate modeling and simulation of existing computer architectures is key to providing reliable baselines to evaluate new solutions for next-generation systems.

This internship will focus on the key aspect of accurate performance modeling of complex computer architectures. The specific goal of this internship is refining and validating a microarchitectural model for a state-of-the-art multicore server processor, to be used as a baseline for future studies. Key components where the model requires validation and refinement include the memory and cache subsystem and network-on-chip interconnect and hardware prefetchers.

Your Responsibilities:
• Implement missing features in the simulation model
• Design, program, and execute microbenchmarks to extract relevant metrics from real HW
• Design, execute, and analyze model validation experiments to assess the error of the simulation model with respect to the real HW
• Identify areas of improvement (i.e., highest contribute to the model error) and refine the model for better accuracy

Your background:
• Strong programming skills in C++ and Python
• Good understanding of processor architecture (pipelines, caches, coherency, prefetchers, …)
• Familiarity with the gem5 simulator is a plus
• Familiarity with the ruby memory model in gem5 is an additional advantage
• Excellent communication and writing skills in English

If you are interested or for any questions, reach out to Dr. Davide Bartolini , who will put you in touch with our recruiters to formalize your application and get the interview process started.
