Open Post-Doc position: Theoretical scheduling algorithms for malleable/reconfigurable HPC tasks

Georges Da Costa, lun. 21 septembre 2020, News

Job description

The position is offered in the framework of the French ANR-funded ENERGUMEN project and will take place at IRIT laboratory in Toulouse, France. This project aims at proposing and evaluating new theoretical scheduling algorithms for malleable/reconfigurable HPC tasks (i.e. able to change the number of resources at runtime), taking into account computing requirements but also data movement that occurs during reconfiguration. We intend to study bi-objective problems from a theoretical point of view, optimizing both consumed energy and a performance criterion, e.g. stretch-time, makespan. The candidate will work on modeling such system, will propose scheduling and reconfiguration algorithms and will evaluate them.

Candidate Profile

Candidates should have a PhD in computer science, a good knowledge on HPC scheduling. The candidate should have good theoretical skills. Practical knowledge on Grid'5000 would be a plus.


Research lab

The Institut de Recherche en Informatique de Toulouse (IRIT) is a Joint Research Unit (UMR) of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), the Institut National Polytechnique de Toulouse (INP), the Université Paul Sabatier Toulouse3 (UT3), the Université Toulouse1 Capitole (UT1) and the Université de Toulouse Jean Jaurès (UT2J).

IRIT is one of the largest UMR at the national level, is one of the pillars of research in Occitanie with its 700 members, permanent and non-permanent. Due to its multi-tutorial nature (CNRS, Toulouse Universities), its scientific impact and its interactions with other fields, the laboratory constitutes one of the structuring forces of the IT landscape and its applications in the digital world, both at regional and national level.


Applications will be continuously evaluated upon reception, and phone interviews will be organized with the selected candidates until the positions are filled. Application will be done by mail to Georges Da Costa and Paul Renaud-Goud and can be accompanied by a recommendation letter. For any additional information, you can send an email to Georges Da Costa and Paul Renaud-Goud.
