- Contribute to group grant proposals, including proposal presentations and preparation of proposals that will provide future research opportunities in the field.
- Participate in the establishment of future research directions.
- Pursueindependent (but complementary) research interests and interact with a broad spectrum of scientists internally and externally to define and carry out the research.
- Perform other duties as assigned.
Qualifications- Recent Ph.D. in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or a related field.
- Knowledge of FPGA hardware design, embedded systems and system software.- Familiarity with HPC systems and knowledge of memory intensive computing applications.
- Ability to conduct high quality independent research and to develop implementations to evaluate the results.
- Experience in the identification of complex problems and solutions in a creative and timely manner.
- Proficient verbal and written communication skills necessary to interact in a clear and concise manner, author technical and scientific reports and papers, and deliver scientific presentations.
- Ability to take the initiative and have interpersonal communication skills necessary to work effectively in a dynamic team environment.

Desired Qualifications
- Experience with embedded computing software development environment.
- Knowledge of C/C++, SystemC, VHDL, Verilog, as well as Python and other scripting languages.- Familiarity with architecture simulators, FPGA-based emulators, OS drivers, and knowledge of parallel programming models such as streaming, data parallel, task-based.

Pre-Employment Drug Test: External applicant(s) selected for this position will be required to pass a post-offer, pre-employment drug test. This includes testing for use of marijuana as Federal Law applies to us as a Federal Contractor.

Security Clearance: None required.
