Job Description and Required Skills
Job Title: Embedded Runtime Analysis and Associated Open Source Software Stacks Co-op (Munich)
Job Description: Effectively harnessing the many-fold parallelism available on modern parallel hardware architectures becomes increasingly challenging. In particular, meeting performance expectations for programs running on today's complex hardware can require significant effort. As runtime analysis techniques pinpoint to inefficiencies in work distribution, communication, and synchronization, these techniques can be used to monitor the runtime behavior or to identify computational hotspots, simultaneously enabling runtime optimizations and an evaluation of the effectiveness and efficiency of a given implementation. However, state-of-the-art analysis tools are mostly designed for cluster and server applications and therefore not suitable in embedded scenarios, exhibiting non-standard requirements and environments. An infrastructure for the performance measurement and analysis of embedded multi-core applications should be investigated. More precisely, the following tasks can be covered.
- Familiarization with embedded systems
- Identification and evaluation of the requirements
- Design and prototypical implementation
Required Job Skills:
- Experience in the design and implementation of software systems with C/C++
- Excellent written and oral communication skills
- High motivation and the ability to work effectively with others
