Job Summary Kirin is a groundbreaking heterogeneous intelligent chip that powers Huawei mobile phones and other devices. Our chip is designed to accelerate all kinds of smartphone services, such as internet browsing, navigation, games, video/image and AI processing. In order to provide the best-possible experience for our customers, were looking for interns with experience and knowledge in computer architecture research. We wish to recruit students who are passionate on the computer architecture and CPU design, with experiences on modelling. As a researcher, you will be responsible for deep profiling of the in-house heterogeneous CPU. You will be responsible for investigating performance and energy bottlenecks of the entire software stack, including OS and system libraries. You will be developing and exploring novel techniques for power and energy software/hardware optimizations. The open position implies a wide range of research activities in collaboration with research centers across
UK towards improving the performance and energy efficiency of Kirin. In this role, you will have a chance to prototype the state-of-the-art in-house CPU design with integrated 5G module and participate in the development of a new generation of system software stack for the Edge eco-system. We are welcome candidates who are ready to face all kinds of challenges and has a passion to compete with world-wide companies for the technological leadership. Key Responsibilities: Performance analysis and profiling of the Kirin in-house CPU architecture. Gathering, analysing and presenting the results of the architecture profiling Search for the performance and energy bottlenecks in system software, including OS and system libraries. Improve DVFS policies for different heterogeneous components. Analysis of the state-of-the-art technologies applied for improving performance/energy efficiency. Research of new hardware extensions and software modifications to reduce the processor power.
Skills/Qualifications Essential You have obtained PhD (from 2018 to 2021 graduate) in computer science, software engineering, robotics or any related fields at a reputable university. Strong mathematical/algorithmic problem-solving and software development skills (C/C++, Python, etc.). Understanding of the fundamentals of general purpose CPU micro-architecture, such as pipelining, out-of-order execution, and caches. Understanding of CPU instruction set architecture and assembly language. Proactivity and willingness to learn and explore new ideas. Excellent communication and writing skills in English. Desirable Knowledge of the ARM architecture (ARMv7, ARMv8). Knowledge of assembly languages and intrinsics (ARMv8, X86). Strong skills in software performance profiling and optimization. Experience in energy/power profiling and optimization (DVFS, power capping,). Knowledge of the Linux and Android internal design. Contributing to open-source projects (LLVM, gcc, Linux QEMU/KVM).
