Job Description

Join Intel-and build a better tomorrow. Intel is in the midst of an exciting transformation, with a vision to create and extend computing technology to connect and enrich the lives of every person on Earth. Join us-and help us create the next generation of technologies that will shape the future for decades to come.

The Parallel Computing Lab (PCL) in Intel Labs is seeking a motivated full-time research scientist in the area of parallel computing research. PCL investigates emerging compute- and data-intensive applications in areas such as artificial intelligence, traditional high-performance computing, big data computing, computational biology, physical simulation, and large-scale optimization problems. We work in close collaboration with leading academic and industry co-travelers to understand the hardware and software architectural implications for Intel's parallel processing platforms.

In this position, you will be responsible for implementing, researching, and prototyping a new scalable data fabric for emerging data intensive and AI applications. You will be one of the key players in definition of a new network architecture including routing algorithms, topologies, congestion control, collective communication and other distributed algorithms that optimized the network performance. You will take initiative and work with other Intel Labs' researchers and across Intel business units to conduct research into promising technologies typically 3-5 years prior to product development. This requires an understanding of computer architecture, system software, performance analysis, and parallel programming.

The successful candidate should exhibit the following behavioral traits:

  • Excellent problem-solving skills
  • Excellent written and spoken communication skills
  • Independent researcher who can function autonomously

This is an entry level position and compensation will be given accordingly.


We're constantly working on making a more connected and intelligent future, and we need your help. Change tomorrow. Start today.

Experience would be obtained through a combination of prior education level classes, and current level school classes, projects, research, and relevant previous job and/or internship experience.

Minimum Qualifications:

    • The candidate must possess a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering or other related areas with formal training in high performance network design.
    • 2+ years experience in high performance network design. Deep understanding of network topologies, routing algorithms, deadlock avoidance, collective communication and network simulation.
    • 2+ years experience in software development (e.g., C, C++, Python, etc.), including parallel programming.
    • 1+ years experience in computer systems (e.g., router architecture, shared memory programming models such as OpenMP, hardware/software co-design, etc.)


Preferred Qualifications:

    • At least 2 lead authored papers, with at least 1 published in a first tier conference (e.g., Supercomputing, IPDPS, ISCA, etc.)
    • Demonstrated experience in high performance network design and evaluation.
    • Demonstrated experience with computer architecture (e.g., processor architecture and overall system design)
