An array of work benefits
We are seeking for a well-motivated postdoc in one or both following areas of High Performance and Scientific Computing. The responsibility of the candidate will be to contribute research in at least one of the following:
- Autotuning and automatic optimization methods for CPUs and GPU accelerators. We focus on dynamic autotuning, tuning space search methods using partial knowledge of program behavior under the different setup (e.g., different hardware or input). We are also interested in automatic source-to-source transformation methods enabling additional optimizations.
- Improving the performance of scientific software from various fields by algorithm re-formulation, application of autotuning frameworks, task-based runtime systems, and source-to-source transformation methods. We can offer strong interdisciplinary background and collaborations in the area of computational chemistry (collaboration with Loschmidt Laboratories, Masaryk University) and cryo-electron microscopy (collaboration with Biocomputing unit, CNB CSIC).
- Application of AI/ML/deep-NN in research in two directions related to the previous topics -- how to use the AI approaches in the optimization techniques, and how to apply the optimization methods to the AI techniques and algorithms.
Selection of our recent papers relevant for the postdoc position:
- F. Petrovic et al. A benchmark set of highly-efficient CUDA and OpenCL kernels and its dynamic autotuning with Kernel Tuning Toolkit. Future Generation Computer Systems, 2020.
- D. Strelak et al. A GPU acceleration of 3-D Fourier reconstruction in cryo-EM. The International Journal of High-Performance Computing Applications, 2019.
- J. Filipovic et al. CaverDock: a novel method for the fast analysis of ligand transport. IEEE/ACM transactions on computational biology and bioinformatics, 2019.

“A desire to solve new and demanding tasks lead me to research, and so I became focused on high performance computing. I’m partaking in software development which is applied in the advancement of medicaments, hence making my work much more meaningful. As a father of three children, I also appreciate the opportunity and flexibility to adjust this time-demanding performance to my personal needs.”Jiří Filipovič
Head of the research team in the field of High Performance Computing
