Fellowship Opportunity in Code Optimization

UFIT and the UF Informatics Institute are soliciting proposals for a one-year graduate assistant fellowship funded by Intel. The purpose of the fellowship is to work on Xeon Phi code optimization as part of a cross-disciplinary project.

Each proposal must include a team of four: two faculty members, one with demonstrated experience in parallel programming and one with domain expertise in any area of scholarship; and two students, one to carry out the code optimization on the Intel Xeon processors and one with domain expertise who’ll use the software for research. It is preferred that projects include science, engineering, or Big Data research in another field such as mathematics, statistics, social science, or the humanities. However, computer engineering applications are not excluded. Work on existing open source software is preferred so the benefit of the code optimization extends to the larger community beyond UF. This document on the Research Computing website provides all background information and proposal requirements.

  • The deadline for proposal submission is March 15, 2016.
  • The earliest start date for the project is May 1, 2016.

Please contact Erik Deumens, Director of UFIT Research Computing, for more information about the fellowship or the proposal process.
