Ensuring applications execute efficiently on modern heterogeneous parallel computing systems raises severe challenges. Solutions appear to demand a co-design approach spanning algorithm designers and programmers as well as compiler and run-time system developers and hardware designers.
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2019. The PhD will be based in the School of Mechanical and Design Engineering and will be supervised by Dr Afshin Anssari-Benam, Dr Andrea Bucchi and Dr.

Background. Electron-Beam Welding (EBW) and Electron-Beam Melting (EBM) are joining and additive manufacturing (AM) processes respectively, in which a beam of high-velocity electrons is applied to materials to create high performance joints and/or 3D structures.
Background. Electron beam additive manufacturing (AM) is a growing technology and is favoured for titanium parts over the more mature laser based AM processes – for every new EB welding machine there are two or three EB AM machines sold.
