Course: Parallel Programming Languages and Systems
Type: Teaching Assistant
Time in Year: Semester 2
Number of Posts: 1
Assist with design and preparation of the practical exercises for
the course, and undertake almost all the marking for these. The
first exercise is pencil-and-paper, requiring students to trace,
analyse and discuss some small shared-memory parallel code fragments,
spotting races, synchronisation errors and so on. The second has two
parts: an MPI programming exercise, and a literature reading/discussion
You will need to be familiar with issues and algorithms in shared
memory and message passing parallel programming in general (such
as synchronisation and race issues), and MPI to a good level of
competence in particular (experience in using a range of MPI
collective operations, familiarity with different communication
modes, experience of using communicators beyond MPI_COMM_WORLD).
For example, you might have previously achieved high marks on a course
such as this.
This post is paid at grade UE06, currently upwards of £12.50/hr.
