Hewlett Packard Labs -- Systems & Software Research Associate (Intern)

Job Description:

At HPE, we bring together the brightest minds to create breakthrough technology solutions and advance the way people live and work. Our legacy inspires us as we forge ahead dedicated to helping our customers make their mark on the world.

Learning does not only happen through training. Relationships are among the most powerful ways for people to learn and grow, and this is part of our HPE culture. In addition to working alongside talented colleagues, you will have many opportunities to learn through coaching and stretch assignment opportunities. You’ll be guided by feedback and support to accelerate your learning and maximize your knowledge. We also have a “reverse mentoring” program which allows us to share our knowledge and strengths across our multi-generation workforce.

Recent technology advances in accelerators, high-density, byte-addressable (non-volatile) memory and low-latency interconnects have enabled building large-scale High Performance Computing (HPC), Mission Critical Systems (MCS), and AI systems. At Hewlett Packard Labs, our research team is inventing and developing the technologies that will enable the HPC/MCS/AI systems of the future. The Hewlett Packard Labs research team is unique in the world, in that it focuses on all levels of the stack from core technologies to applications, and many layers in between. We offer the opportunity to do cutting edge research and see it become real.

Your primary focus initially will be on programming models and runtime systems software for HPC/MCS/AI applications. Specific activities will include:
    * Designing and implementing runtime systems software to support resource allocation and management, scheduling, reliability, coordination and other system services in HPC/MCS/AI environment.
    * Designing and implementing APIs that enable programming HPC/MCS/AI environments and delivering them as a Service (aaS).
    * Designing and implementing interfaces for developing applications that are resilient to system failures.
    * Evaluating the proposed API and runtime implementations with benchmarks and challenge applications that showcase their functionality and performance.
    * Participating in the design and implementation of systems that are best suited for certain customer-driven requirements.
    * Interacting with other teams who are developing adjacent hardware, firmware, software, mechanical, and thermal features that target these future HPC/MCS/AI systems.

We are looking for PhD candidates in computer science or engineering, who are interested in a researcher and/or disruptive development position. We expect candidates to have demonstrated the ability to frame, execute, and communicate research, for example, via papers published in top-tier conferences or journals, as well as build substantial artifacts that validate their research.

We value the ability to work independently and in teams, excellent verbal and written communication skills, strong computer science and engineering background, and the desire to learn new techniques to solve problems. Excellent software development skills for complex software systems are a significant plus.

Job Responsibilities
    * Participates as a member of a research team focused on the design, implementation and analysis of application programming APIs and runtime systems software for future HPC/MCS/AI architectures to support the creation of new products and/or services, open source software and intellectual property.
    * Collaborate with internal and external partners to perform experiments and validations in accordance with the overall research plan.
    * Communicate results and conclusions to team members for review and feedback.
    * Prepare literature and presentations for peer review, publication, and delivery at industry and scientific events and conferences.
    * Create patent applications and supporting documentation.
    * Drive innovation and integration of new technologies and practices into research and product development organizations, as well as the open source community.

Education and Experience
    * Currently enrolled in PhD program or recently graduated (or foreign equivalent) in Computer Science or Engineering.
    * A minimum 4 years of proven academic or industrial research experience involving the design, implementation and evaluation of systems software and/or programming models.
    * Proven capability to define and execute a research agenda. 
    * Proven capability to effectively work in a team based environment.

Knowledge and Skills
    * A very high level of coding and debugging skills in both conventional languages such as C++ or Java, as well as scripting languages such as Python or Perl. Fluency in C++ is a plus. Knowledge of
    * Demonstrated ability to design, develop and debug large complex software systems.
    * Strong background in performance analysis and tuning.
    * Excellent written and verbal English communication skills.
    * Familiarity with concurrency and software design for large scale multiprocessor NUMA systems is a plus.
    * Familiarity and experience with accelerators, interconnects, and complex memory models is a plus.
    * Demonstrated ability to work constructively in an open source community is a plus.
    * Broad familiarity with processor and memory system hardware architecture is a plus.
    * Ability to understand the impact of software architectural design decisions on system performance, fault tolerance and usability is a plus.

We offer:
•   A competitive salary and extensive social benefits
•   Diverse and dynamic work environment
•   Work-life balance and support for career development
•   An amazing life inside the element!
