Postdoc in High Performance Energy Efficient Computing in Memrsitors

School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at KTH

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

Job description

The postdoc candidate will map complex high performance linear algebraic problems to Computation-In- Memristors. Part of the calculations of the model will be mapped in the crossbar using analog computations to fuse storage and computation to fundamentally overcome the von-Neumann bottleneck. The key challenges that the post-doc will address will be memristor device modelling, factoring in large space-time variations in memristor devices, full-custom circuit level design and mixed-signal design.

Supervision: The post-doc will be supervised by Prof. Ahmed Hemani

What we offer

  • A position at a leading technical university that generates knowledge and skills for a sustainable future
  • Engaged and ambitious colleagues along with a creative, international and dynamic working environment
  • Works in Stockholm, in close proximity to nature
  • Help to relocate and be settled in Sweden and at KTH
