PhD Student: GPU Acceleration (R1)

Context And Mission

The Accelerators and Communications for HPC Group leads cutting-edge research and development around accelerators/coprocessors in HPC and high-performance networking. We collaborate closely with the major vendors in the topic for HPC (NVIDIA, Intel, Huawei). We organize locally international events such as the PUMPS+AI Summer School, PATC Courses on CUDA/OpenACC, and annual hackathons, and collaborate in the organization of related international conferences and workshops such as SC, IEEE Cluster, or AsHES.

The group has been recently awarded one of the prestigious ERC Consolidator Grants:

We are looking to cover a PhD Student positions to work on use of GPU-based accelerators applied to Homomorphically Encrypted Deep Learning Inference. Prospective candidates may take a look at the following paper to get an initial idea of our focus:
