ASTRON Research Project Recruiting

DOME is a five-year collaboration between IBM and ASTRON, The Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy, to research extremely fast, but low-power exascale computer systems targeted for the international Square Kilometre Array (SKA). The SKA is an international consortium to build the world's largest and most sensitive radio telescope. Scientists estimate that the processing power required to operate the telescope will be equal to several millions of today's fastest computers.

For more information read this whitepaper.

The project will investigate emerging technologies for large-scale and efficient exascale computing, data transport and storage processes, and streaming analytics that will be required to read, store and analyze all the raw data that will be collected daily. Scientists from both organizations will collaborate at the newly established ASTRON & IBM Center for Exascale Technology in Dwingeloo, The Netherlands.

Qualified MS and PhD students must be progressing towards degrees in engineering, science, IT majors, or other research-related majors.
