EPSRC Grant: Continuous on-line adaptation in many-core systems: From graceful degradation to graceful amelioration.

University of Southampton and University of Manchester are collaborative partners in the 4 year EPSRC research grant led by University of York.

The research is centred on two themes: Graceful degradation implies that the system will be able to cope with either faults (permanent or temporary) or potentially damaging power consumption peaks by lowering its performance. Graceful amelioration implies that the system will constantly seek for alternative.

The Southampton research will centre upon; Power-aware simulation of many-core systems, mechanisms for run-time power management in many-core systems and implementation and validation of run-time power management mechanisms.


We are therefore seeking a researcher with experience relating to the algorithms, design and fabrication of custom FPGA boards for power management and reliability of many-core systems. Knowledge of machine learning in respect of power management and on-line soft error monitoring and correction methods for power management hardware will also be tested within the research.

Further experience gained within; evaluation of the performance of the approach on such boards and the ability to demonstrate the advantages of the techniques on a many-core system is expected.

It is expected that the applicant will need to be confident interacting with the York, and Manchester teams as well as with a major EPSRC Programme Grant (PRiME) team being led by the Co-investigator of this grant at Southampton. Travel to quarterly external research team meetings will be expected.

This post is offered on a fixed term basis of 36 months from inception of contract.

The closing date for this post is 26 December 2013 Please apply online through or alternatively telephone 023 8059 2421 for an application form. Please quote vacancy reference number 335613FP on all correspondence.
