PhD Position @ Uni Amsterdam February 2018

PhD position (Uni Amsterdam) in Programming Languages and Energy-aware Multi-core Computing

The System and Network Engineering Lab (SNE) of the University of Amsterdam invites applications for a fully funded PhD candidate position in the area of programming languages and energy-aware multi-core computing. The PhD candidate will be involved in the EU


Horizon-2020 collaborative research project TeamPlay (Time, Energy and security Analysis for Multi/Many-core heterogenous PLAtforms) and work under the supervision of Dr Clemens Grelck and Dr Sebastian Altmeyer.


The EU Horizon-2020 project TeamPlay brings together 11 academic and industrial partners from across Europe to develop innovative techniques that treat non-functional properties of multi-core software, such as execution time, energy usage and security as first-class citizens. The TeamPlay vision is to enable developers to reason about the functional *and* the non-functional properties of their software at the source code level and to create programs that reflect on their own execution time, energy consumption, etc. More information on the TeamPlay project can be found at


Within the TeamPlay vision the successful candidate will work on novel programming language abstractions, system-level coordination as well as energy- and time-aware mapping and scheduling techniques that together control the execution of componentised applications on parallel and heterogeneous multi-core architectures under various constraints.


This is a paid position as a staff member of the SNE Lab with all advantages and privileges of the Dutch higher education sector!


The SNE Lab is part of the Informatics Institute (IvI), which has consistently been ranked among the top 100 computer science departments in the world. The University of Amsterdam is one of the oldest universities in the Netherlands. Today it is the largest and highest ranked Dutch university. The SNE Lab conducts research on leading-edge computing systems across all scales, from global-scale systems and networks to embedded devices. Our particular interest is on extra-functional properties, such as performance, energy consumption, reliability, programmability, productivity, trust and security.


The appointment will be full-time (38 hours a week) for a period of

4 years (the initial employment is for 18 months). The salary is in accordance with the university regulations for academic personnel and will range from €2,222 in the first year up to a maximum of €2,840 in the final year (per month, before tax). Additional benefits such as the 8% holiday bonus and the 8.3% end of year bonus result in (almost)

14 effective salaries per year.


Come to work at one of Europe’s top universities and live in one of Europe's most beautiful and cosmopolitan cities.


Closing date: March 16, 2018
