The International Computer Science Institute (ICSI) invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow position in the area of applying modern compiler technology to the domain of high-performance network security monitoring.
The Fellow will be working with ICSI's networking group on designing, implementing, and evaluating novel approaches for efficient monitoring of large-scale network environments. The position's primary research focus is on developing strategies for compiling high-level analysis descriptions into highly-optimized code for execution on current multi-core architectures.
We are looking for candidates with a strong compiler background, ideally including previous work with the LLVM toolchain. Candidates should have an interest in applying their expertise to the networking domain; prior experience with analyzing network traffic or implementing network protocols is an advantage. Candidates should further have experience in at least one of the following areas: network security, multi-core architectures, performance profiling, or custom hardware design. Candidates should also be familiar with C/C++ programming in Unix-based environments.
ICSI is an independent not-for-profit Institute located a few blocks from the Berkeley campus of the University of California. It is closely affiliated with the University, and particularly with the Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS) Department. See www.icsi.berkeley.edu to learn more about ICSI, and www.icir.org for more information about the networking group.
The appointment will be for one year initially, and a Ph.D. in computer science (or an equivalent degree) is required for the position. To apply, email an application to firstname.lastname@example.org , including a cover letter, curriculum vitae and contact information for at least two references.
ICSI is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer. Applications from women and minorities are especially encouraged. Hiring is contingent on eligibility to work in the United States. Non-residents will be able to apply for a visa.
