Argonne National Laboratory is seeking a Postdoctoral Appointee on FPGAs for Supercomputing in our Job of the Week.
This is an exciting opportunity for you to contribute to a new way of thinking in high-performance computing by marrying state-of-the-art reconfigurable hardware with modern performance-portable programming models. This research will combine advances in high-level synthesis for field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) with the emerging OpenMP 4 programming model, thus enabling existing HPC codes to take advantage of the advanced floating-point support available in modern FPGA designs. This same technology will also enable applications relying primarily on integer processing, such as those from bioinformatics. Responsibilities are centered around adapting OpenMP 4 support in the Clang/LLVM compiler to support offloading computation to FPGAs. A passion for improving compiler technology, a keen interest in non-traditional computing hardware, and a desire to advance scientific computing, will be rewarded in this position.
