Post-doctoral fellowship in the area of disaggregation of resources in the context of edge-computing and 5G/6G

LERIS is seeking candidates for a post-doctoral fellowship position for 24 months to work in the recently created SMARTNESS FAPESP Engineering Research Center (ERC). The candidate will work specifically in the area of disaggregation of resources. Disaggregation is a concept  where resources are separated into pools, facilitating elasticity, deployment and management. The main idea is to carry out the functional decomposition of applications into blocks of codes and map these blocks to different hardwares such as programmable network devices (e.g. Tofino switches), SmartNICs and FPGAs, which are used to perform network processing and other specialized functions, releasing the CPU to only handle applications. The candidate will need to understand how LLVM and other tools such as Intel® oneAPI DPC++/C++ Compiler may be used to build the solution. The candidate will work under the supervision of Prof. Fábio Luciano Verdi in the scope of DisCoNet Research Strand.

*** How to apply  ***

Interested candidates should fill the online form until March 20th, 2023, by adding the documents listed below:

1. A motivation letter for the application;

2. Curriculum vitae, with the list of publications, education background, research track-record, and previous experience;

3. Ph.D. degree certificate;

*** Selection process ***

It will be based on the motivation of the proposal, letters of recommendation, curriculum vitae with the list of publications, training and experience, and copy of the University Degree certicate (s). There will be an interview with the finalists which will take place via videoconference. 

 *** Additional Information ***

Eligibility Criteria: Ph.D. in Computer Science or related areas.

The opportunity is open to Brazilians and foreigners. The selected candidate will receive a FAPESP Postdoctoral Scholarship in the amount of R$ 8,479.20 per month and a Technical Reserve equivalent to 10% of the annual value of the scholarship for contingency funds directly related to the research activity.
