You will be part of a team doing advanced path-finding for an HPC architectural study exploring innovation in system architecture to achieve performance across a broad scope of system components including computing (core/uncore), networking (on-die, on-MCP, off-MCP), silicon technologies, packaging, reliability and system software. The team evaluates technology tradeoffs for performance objectives.

Technical topics to be investigated include: exploring fabric protocol options; exploring physical and link technology options (including optical interconnect technology); characterizing latency and bandwidth capability for each option; exploring fabric routing options; exploring costs associated with fabric options; and exploring paths available to reuse Intel commercially developed fabrics.
Qualifications:
Must have a BS in Electrical Engineering or Computer Science or related field with at least 6 years of experience or MS with 4 years of experience or a PhD or equivalent
Minimum of 6 years of experience with on-package interconnect
Minimum of 6 years of experience with module and rack level interconnect
Preferred Skills:
Experience with large-scale HPC systems
High performance interconnect technology such as Omni-Path, InfiniBand and iWARP
Strong understanding of software and hardware interaction
Benchmarking and technology evaluations of new or emerging memory hierarchy, file and storage systems, and network technologies
Understanding of microprocessor architecture concepts including cache architecture, system-level coherency, shared virtual memory, network-on-chip and related protocols
Parallel and network-based programming libraries such as socket programming, MPI, OpenMP, POSIX threads
Comfortable with working on/developing performance simulation models
Excellent verbal and written skills to interact with design teams
Experience in writing technical documents
Motivated, self-directed and able to work effectively both independently and in a team
Good planning skills
