The Institute for Microelectronics, TU Wien is seeking a highly motivated computational science PhD student/research assistant to investigate high performance software approaches for accelerating computationally highly demanding three-dimensional mesh generation tasks of intricate structures. The key focus will be on investigating shared-memory parallelization techniques, aiming primarily for multi-core platforms (e.g. Intel Xeon) but also for many-core computing targets (e.g. Intel Xeon Phi). The developed methods will be applied to challenges in the area of bio-micro- and nanoelectromechanical systems as well as semiconductor device and process simulations (previous exposure to those fields is not required). The work environment consists of an international team comprised of colleagues from academia as well as industrial partners. The candidate is expected to be a team player, eager, proactive, and self-reliant. The candidate is further expected to enter TU Wien’s PhD program, present research findings at international conferences (for which funding is available) as well as to publish in international journals.
