Job Description

The AI Chip Centre for Emerging Smart Systems (ACCESS) is a multi-disciplinary center for advancing IC design and design automation technologies to enable novel data-centric computing paradigms supporting a wide range of AI applications. The research agenda in ACCESS is organized into four research programs, addressing four key technical areas, including 1) Enabling Technology for Emerging Computer Systems, 2) Architecture and Heterogeneous System Integration, 3) AI-Assisted EDA for AI Hardware, and 4) Hardware-Accelerated AI Applications.

Responsibilities 

The Post-doctoral Fellow is expected to be involved in the development of one or multiple research programs and projects in the Center/HKUST. He/she will conduct research and development tasks that are assigned by the Principal and/or Senior Researchers. He/she is required to station and work at the Hong Kong Science Park, with occasional business travels to the HKUST Clear Water Bay Campus and other Collaborating Universities of the Center when needed.

Requirements 

Applicants should have a Ph.D. degree preferably in electronics, electrical or computer engineering, computer science, or equivalent, with proven experience in integrated circuit design, design automation, or broadly microelectronics; those who possess equivalent academic qualifications in STEM-related disciplines would also be considered. Specifically, R&D, as well as hand-on implementation experiences in the following area(s) with relevance to the design of AI accelerators are preferred (but not limited to):

  • Neuromorphic computing, compute-in-memory (CIM), and relevant memory and storage systems;
  • Non-volatile memory (CVM), silicon photonic devices, or 3D integration for acceleration of computing or communications;
  • AI algorithm and architectural co-design; Neural network optimization for hardware implementation;
  • ASIC design; FPGA prototyping;
  • Design and implementation of chip/hardware accelerators for AI applications;
  • Hardware-software co-design; Electronics design automation (such as modeling, simulation, physical design, logic/high-level synthesis, verification, testing, design for manufacturability, etc.)

The ideal candidate should have strong research motivation and a sense of responsibility, the ability to multi-task and work independently, and a good command of written and spoken English.

Terms of Appointment

Starting salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. Fringe benefits including annual leave, medical and dental benefits will be provided.

ACCESS is an equal opportunity employer and welcomes applications from all qualified candidates.
