IBM’s Brain-Inspired Computing team at IBM Research - Almaden has built a first-of-a-kind modular, scalable, non-von Neumann, ultra-low power, cognitive computing architecture (TrueNorth) and associated end-to-end software ecosystem. We are building state-of-the-art digital neuromorphic chips and systems (large-scale and mobile) to solve real-time sensory problems.
We seek team members with proven hardware backgrounds who know a bit about machine learning. Ideal candidates will have expertise in several of the following areas:
Neuromorphic hardware design:
VLSI design including synthesis, place and route physical design, integration, timing and power optimization
Logic and RTL design, simulation, test and debug
Verification, and validation with SystemVerilog and UVM environments
Large-scale neuromorphic system design
Mapping neural networks to custom hardware
Experience developing, testing, and deploying complex systems for real-world applications
Parallel programming using tools such as Message Passing Interface (MPI), Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA), OpenMP
Expert level programming skills in C++, Python
Real-time embedded software/firmware development, Linux kernel/device drivers, system level simulation and optimization
Required Technical and Professional Expertise
At least 1 year experience in any of the following: SystemVerilog, UVM, SystemC, Verilog or VHDL.
At least 1 year in C++/Python and Object Oriented Methodology
Preferred Tech and Prof Experience
At least 2 year experience in any of the following: SystemVerilog, UVM, SystemC, Verilog or VHDL.
At least 2 year in C++/Python and Object Oriented Methodology
