Applications for this vacancy closed on 13 January 2014 at 12:00PM
Applications are invited for a fixed-term post within the ARTEMIS group which
spans across the Oxford e-Research Centre and Oxford Astrophysics at the
University of Oxford. The post is available for a period of 24 months,
commencing March 2014.

The successful applicant will have a technical role working on the Astro-
Accelerate project that focuses on many-core acceleration of software for
real-time data processing in pulsar and fast radio burst surveys. The role
supports the ARTEMIS real-time surveys, currently making use of the Low
Frequency Array (LOFAR), with other major radio telescopes commencing similar
surveys in the near future. The role involves designing, producing and
evaluating highly optimised modular software for many-core platforms, such as
GPUs or Xeon Phi. Additionally, the successful applicant will work closely
with the SKA Time Domain Team collaboration, consisting of researchers from
Oxford, the University of Manchester and the Max-Planck Institute for
Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany. The post will be situated in the Oxford
e-Research Centre and has close collaborative ties with the Oxford
Astrophysics department.

Expertise in many-core computing with an emphasis on experience using the CUDA
programming language or OpenCL are required. Prior experience using many-core
technologies for real-time data processing would be an advantage.

Applicants should possess (or be very close to obtaining) a doctorate in
scientific computing, engineering, physics, or a related field to the project
defined above.

Please direct informal enquiries about this post to Dr Wes Armour
(wes.armour@oerc.ox.ac.uk) and Dr Aris Karastergiou (aris@astro.ox.ac.uk).
