High Performance Computing System Design

Location: Parafield, SA

Duration: 3 months

Proposed start date: July 2019

Project Background

Silentium Defence is a new start-up in Adelaide that is commercialising and developing passive radar technology for a number of Defence and civilian applications. This project will support Silentium Defence to develop and mature products and services.

Silentium Defence are developing sensors that will have many channels and process large volumes of data. As a result, they are looking for a PhD student with a High Performance Computing background and that has knowledge and experience of developing computing architecture that can handle the data throughput and maintain real-time processing as the sensor size grows.

Research to be Conducted

Although Silentium Defence have identified the area of research they wish to conduct, they are open to negotiate the project specifics with the appropriate candidates.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a student to have an influence on shaping the project and defining the expected outcomes.

Skills Required

We are looking for a PhD student with the following:

  • Experience with high performance computing system design
  • Experience in high performance computing software design

Expected Outcomes

The expected outcomes of the project will be negotiated and agreed with the successful candidate.

Additional Details

The intern will receive $3,000 per month of the internship, usually in the form of stipend payments.

It is expected that the intern will primarily undertake this research project during regular business hours, spending at least 80% of their time on-site with the industry partner.  The intern will be expected to maintain contact with their academic mentor throughout the internship either through face-to-face or phone meetings as appropriate.

The intern and their academic mentor will have the opportunity to negotiate the project’s scope, milestones and timeline during the project planning stage.
