Job Description

1) High performance computing system architectures:
This position investigates a new computing system architecture studies based on photonic interconnects, reconfigurable computing, and cache-less processor-memory integrated systems. The current project team is investigating new scalable computing systems, multi-core processor architectures, heterogeneous computing, and system architectures with optical-interconnects scaling to exascale. Hence there are both software-oriented and hardware-oriented positions available. The software-oriented candidate is expected to conduct algorithm studies, architecture design, performance simulations and benchmarking. Desirable qualifications include working knowledge of computing systems architectures, but no experience with hardware is required. The hardware-oriented candidate is expected to conduct computing system integration, FPGA programming, and experimental studies, and other relevant tasks for the team projects.

2) Neuromorphic Computing Architectures:
This position investigates non-von-Neumann computing architectures covering a wide range of new research topics: neuromorphic computing, bio-inspired edge computing systems, processing in memory, and cognitive computing systems. The candidate will work with the current project team which is developing new 3D nano-photonic/nano-electronic neuromorphic computing hardware prototypes. Hence the candidate is expected to investigate system architectures, develop simulators, and conduct benchmarking studies against the state-of-the-art technologies. Desirable qualifications include working knowledge of computing systems architectures, but no experience with hardware is required.

3) Silicon Photonics, Group IV Photonics, and 2D/3D Photonic-Electronic Integration: this position specializes in research and development of silicon photonic and group IV photonic technologies including modulators, detectors, multiplexers, demultiplexers, arrayed waveguide gratings, trans-impedance amplifiers, and electronic drivers for applications in future computing systems, signal processors, LIDAR, imager processors. Multiple positions are available, and candidates are expected to work in a team environment taking part in one or more of design, fabrication, 2D/3D integration, testing, and application demonstrations. Applications of the integrated microsystems include computing, networking, imaging, and other areas, which will also involve testbed demonstrations. Demonstrated skills in one or more aspects of design, fabrication, and testing of photonic components are required.

4) III-V Photonics, Heterogeneous Integration, Hybrid Lasers, Neuromorphic Processors: this position specializes in active/passive integration such as hybrid lasers, amplifiers, nanophotonic neuromorphic processors, based on silicon, III-V, silica, and other materials leading to heterogeneous and hybrid integration of functional microsystems on chip. In addition to research and development of novel devices, the emphasis will be on integration of a large number of photonic and electronic components including lasers, modulators, detectors, multiplexers, demultiplexers, optical amplifiers, logic gates, arrayed waveguide gratings, transimpedance amplifiers, and electronic drivers. Multiple positions are available, and candidates are expected to work in a team environment taking part in one or more of design, fabrication, 2D/3D integration, testing, and application demonstrations. Applications of the integrated microsystems include computing, networking, imaging, and other areas, which will also involve testbed demonstrations. Demonstrated skills in one or more aspects of design, fabrication, and testing of photonic components are required.
