Research Associate in Parallel and Distributed Computing
High Performance Systems Laboratory in the Department of Computer Science at University of Houston seeks a Research Associate with expertise in parallel and distributed systems. The research in the laboratory spans computation frameworks, performance modeling, and fault tolerance in the context of parallel and distributed computing. The position is associated with the Volpex project (volpex.cs.uh.edu) which has the goal of enabling mainstream parallel computing on volunteer nodes. Experience in building parallel or distributed systems is required. Familiarity with MPI, virtualization, volunteer computing, and grid and cloud computing are helpful for this research. The successful candidate will participate in all aspects of the Volpex project spanning development and experimentation, mentoring graduate and undergraduate students and authoring publications and funding proposals. Candidates interested in the position should send their CV and names of at least 3 references to email@example.com.
