Postdoctoral Researcher in Computer Engineering

A postdoctoral position is available at the High Performance Computer Architecture and Technologies (HPCAT) Lab at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Arizona, Tucson.  The position is available for Fall 2013.
The research focus for this position is on the development and design of  scalable, power-efficient, and reliable  network-on-chips (NOCs) for multi-core architectures with particular focus on analysis of power-performance trade-offs, design of fault-tolerant NoCs, and utilization of  emerging technologies (e.g. optical interconnects, wireless, 3D). 

Applicants should have earned a PhD degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or Computer Science and Engineering. Experience and publications in leading conferences and journals on computer architecture, scalable NoCs design (power-efficient, reliable, high-performance, interconnect technologies), and multi-core architectures is required.

Please submit, by email, a single attachment, that includes your detailed CV, a brief statement of your research accomplishments and interests, a sample of  publications in the fields mentioned above, and the contact information for three references, to:
