Emerging applications, such as Machine Learning (ML), are very demanding on the computation and memory requirements. At the same time, the wide spectrum of ML applications pushes these requirements from very constrained systems with extreme energy and thermal limitations up to large scale data center systems. As such, novel architectures need to be developed as to deliver the required performance and at the same time scale efficiently throughout different design points in the compute continuum. In order to achieve these goals we need to move away from general-purpose solutions and focus on Domain Specific Architectures (DSA). Within the context of a recently accepted EU project, Chalmers will work together with other major European partners as to design novel Deep Learning (DL) accelerator architectures. In order to achieve this goal, we will explore the co-design of the architecture between computer architecture and DL algorithms experts. The accelerators will be developed to be part of a network of IoT devices that collaboratively will solve problems for automotive, industry and smart home use cases.

The project will be run in the Division of Computer Engineering within the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. Within the Division we have four faculty members, two postdocs and eleven PhD students who are engaged in research in computer architecture.

The faculty members have been awarded prestigious grants for their research such as the ERC advanced grant and also participate in top EU projects such as the European Processor Initiative (EPI). The results of the research work are published in highly ranked conferences and journals in the field. In this environment we are currently building up a new research group focusing on the design of advanced Domain Specific Architectures. This announcement is for a position within this new growing group.

International students rate the Chalmers educational experience as one of the best in Europe, according to results from the International Student Barometer. The quality of teaching and assessment receives particular praise. Additionally, when asked if the University was overall ‘a good place to be’, students’ responses put Chalmers at number one in the world. Chalmers has launched a MSc program in High-Performance Computer Systems and in Data Science, putting the topic of this project in the centre of gravity of educational efforts.

Major responsibilities
As a Postdoctoral at Chalmers, you have a two-year (1+1) employment to carry out research, management tasks for the project, and co-supervision of PhD students.

Position summary
Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of two years (1+1).

Postdoctoral position in Machine Learning Driven Air Flow Control for Reduced Drag of Ships

HR_Kollage_14_600x150px.jpg

Information about the project
We are offering a position as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the field of active flow control for drag reduction utilising artifical intelligence/machine learning. The objective is to design innovative techniques to control the flow over the superstructure of ships in order to maximise the aerodynamic performance of the vessel and reduce the total energy consumption and improve vessel comfort and safety. Previous projects have shown both that the flow over a ship like structure may be complex and difficult to control, but also that machine learning algorithms are a promising way to overcome this challenge.

To achieve this objective, several components are necessary to master. The flow around generic ship models will be further studied using scale resolved CFD (PANS and LES) as well as experiments at Chalmers Flow Laboratory. Flow control algorithms, using both passive and active systems, should be developed that are effective in a range of flow conditions for the vessel; here, machine learning/AI will be used in the design of the control system. The aim of your research project will be to develop new flexible and efficient ML schemes for active flow control that can improve aerodynamics performance of ships.

The project is a cooperative project between Prof Sinisa Krajnovic and Prof Rickard Bensow at the divisions of Fluid dynamics and Marine Technology respectively.

M2 is characterized by an international environment with employees and students from around the world, as well as outstanding research and world class education. M2 consists of seven different divisions within the areas of engineering and maritime sciences, and one division of administration and support.

Major responsibilities
Your major responsibility will be to pursue the research and development within the project. You are expected to develop your own scientific ideas and concepts, and to communicate the results of your research verbally and in writing. You will be guided by senior researchers at the involved department. Your major responsibility as postdoc is to perform your own research in the research group. The position may also include teaching on undergraduate and master’s levels as well as supervising master’s and/or PhD students to a certain extent. The position is meritorious for future research duties within academia as well as industry/the public sector.

Position summary
The position is full-time temporary employment. It is limited to a maximum of two years, starting with a one-year employment, followed by an evaluation, if the work is proceeding sufficiently well the employment will be extended for a second year.

Qualifications
To qualify as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the current project, you must have a PhD degree in a relevant field and not older than three years.
