About the university
Uppsala University is an international research university focused on the development of science and education. Our most important assets are all the individuals who with their curiosity and their dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting work places. Uppsala University has 40,000 students, 7,000 employees and a turnover of SEK 6,5 billion.
The Department of Information Technology at Uppsala University has a leading position in research and education. The Department currently has about 290 employees, including 30 professors, 85 academic teachers/researchers, and 115 Ph.D. students. More than 4,000 students study one or more courses at the department each year.
This Ph.D. student position is a collaboration between the Department of Information Technology at Uppsala University and the Department of Computer and Information Science at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).
Information about the position
Nowadays, practically all computer systems are energy constrained, resulting in limited systems performance. Thus, it is crucial to address this constraint to improve a computer system's overall functionality. The topic of the Ph.D. will be centered around designing energy efficient computer systems with an emphasis on approximate computing. The overall objective of the project is to:
(i) develop compiler techniques to manage criticality of data and operations,
(ii) develop methods to convey information about data criticality, and
(iii) develop computer architectures that can utilize this information for improved energy efficiency. The project is expected to make contributions to the fields of optimizing compilers, hardware/software interaction, and computer architecture. The project details will be defined based on the Ph.D. student’s knowledge and interests.
Uppsala University and NTNU aims for gender balance and diversity in all activities in order to achieve a higher quality at all levels of the organization. We therefore welcome applicants of any gender and with different birth background, functionality and life experience.
