The job description for this position covers three aspects:

  • Research: The PostDoc is expected to join the Computation-in-memory team (3PhD students and some Msc students) and perform research in collaborations with our collaborators both in EU or USA; the research program can be part of EU projects, bilateral collaboration with industry or even national programs.

  • Management: Together with the chair professor, the PostDoc is also expected to take the lead in a Computation-In-Memory team (3 PhDs and couple of master students). He/she will co-supervise the team and be active in some management activities e.g., writing projects.

  • Education: It is expected that the PostDoc will be actively involved in education programs that CE Lab is involved in. In particular, CE Lab is teaching computer architecture related courses.

This position lends itself quite well to be the start of an academic career.


You hold a PhD in computer engineering or a related discipline and you have a track record scientific excellence in the field(s) of Computer Architecture, and/or compiling technologies. Knowledge and experiences in some or all of the following fields will be an asset:

- Heterogeneous computing (Processing-in-memory is preferred) systems development

- Compiler construction/optimization (e.g. using LLVM)

- System simulation/verification (e.g. using GEM5, Sniper)

- Good programming practice

The excellent scientific qualities of the candidate should be demonstrated by a PhD degree, publications in international refereed journals and conferences, and participation in relevant (inter)national networks.

You will be expected to lead or strongly contribute to academic publications, contribute to grant proposals, and interact with stakeholders outside academia (e.g., end users, business and public policy). Strong verbal and written communication skills as well as social skills are therefore also required.

Delft University of Technology (the TU Delft) is a multifaceted institution offering education and carrying out research in the technical sciences at an internationally recognised level. Education, research and design are strongly oriented towards applicability. The TU Delft develops technologies for future generations, focusing on sustainability, safety and economic vitality. At the TU Delft you will work in an environment where technical sciences and society converge. The TU Delft comprises eight faculties, unique laboratories, research institutes and schools.

Faculty Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) is known worldwide for its high academic quality and the social relevance of its research programmes. The faculty’s excellent facilities accentuate its international position in teaching and research. Within this interdisciplinary and international setting the faculty employs more than 1100 employees, including about 400 graduate students and about 2100 students. Together they work on a broad range of technical innovations in the fields of sustainable energy, telecommunications, microelectronics, embedded systems, computer and software engineering, interactive multimedia and applied mathematics.

Driven by three major challenges of todays’ computer architectures (i.e., Memory Wall, Instruction Level Parallelism Wall, and Power Wall) and three major challenges of todays’ CMOS technologies (Leakage Wall, Cost Wall, and Reliability wall), and in order for computing systems to continue to deliver sustainable benefits for the foreseeable future society, alternative computing architectures and notions have to be explored in the light of emerging new device technologies. Computation-in-memory research domain within CE lab at developing and demonstrating a new computation-in-memory (CIM) architecture based on resistive devices together with its required programming flow and interface. Activities are taking place in collaboration with our partners in an EU project lead by CE-Lab; these are are Eindhoven University of Technology, IMEC, ARM, IBM, RWTH-Aachen, ETHZ, and INRIA. The research activities include (a) Design of new (Non-Von Neumann) CIM architecture based on a memristive device technology, (b) Design and test of memristor based logic and memories, (c) design of efficient on-chip communication schemes for computation in memory architecture, (d) Development and design of new mapping method and framework for efficient compilation and mapping of parallel algorithms on CIM architecture, etc. The collaborators
