Applications are invited for a two-year postdoctoral position at the Rince Institute, School of Electronic Engineering, Dublin City University.
The successful candidate will focus on analysing, designing and prototyping solutions to a number of performance challenges related to the optical interconnection network of very large scale high-performance computing systems. The research will be conducted in collaboration with the IBM Exascale Stream Computing Collaboratory.
The successful postdoctoral fellow must hold a PhD in Telecommunications Engineering, Electronic/Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or a related field, and have a proven track record of high quality research in the following areas:
• Use of wavelength tuneable lasers for optical switching (e.g. tuneable laser characterisation and control, optical filters, optical switching using MEMS, optical wavelength conversion)
• Wavelength Division Multiplexed Optical Networks (e.g. WDM topology, switching and routing of traffic, network control, optical burst and packet switching)
• Previous experience in the following topics would also be an advantage: Optical Interconnects, Coherent Optical Transmission, Ethernet, Network test-bed implementation, Optical Signal Processing.
The position will be co-funded by IRCSET and IBM through IRCSET’s Enterprise Partnership Scheme. Applicants must meet IRCSET’s eligibility criteria and will be assessed independently by IRCSET. Further details of the Enterprise Partnership Scheme may be found at http://www.ircset.ie/Default.aspx?tabid=58.
