Xilinx is the world's leading provider of All Programmable FPGAs, SoCs and 3D ICs. These industry-leading devices are coupled with a next-generation design environment and IP to serve a broad range of customer needs, from programmable logic to programmable systems integration. Xilinx All Programmable devices underpin today's most advanced electronics.


Xilinx Labs, part of the CTO Office at Xilinx, is concerned with innovation, differentiation, and the de-risking of technology.  Goals are to: enable new users; provide a ‘more than Moore’ roadmap; seed new market opportunities; and win the mindshare of startup and research communities.  Xilinx Labs is establishing a new group at the Xilinx Asia-Pacific headquarters in Singapore, to complement its existing groups at the Xilinx headquarters in North America and in Europe.


The Research Director will found and lead the Xilinx Labs Asia-Pacific group, comprising Ph.D-level research staff as well as research interns.  The director will also build a collaborative ecosystem in Singapore and around the Asia-Pacific region, including startups, research institutes, and university groups.  The director will represent the CTO Office as part of the local Xilinx management team, and at industry forums and research conferences.


The Research Director will be an active researcher with an excellent international reputation, who both leads and makes technical contributions to projects that deliver value for Xilinx.  The initial technical plan for the new group is to focus on edge computing (both communication aspects like software-defined networking, and computation aspects like machine learning) and integrated security mechanisms.  It is expected that the director will have a background that enables significant contributions within these areas.  However, it is essential that the director has a flexible approach to both research topics and process, since Xilinx Labs adopts a very agile approach to address rapidly changing opportunities and priorities.

Qualifications:

 

Ph.D. in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or Electrical Engineering.

 

Postdoctoral research areas include one or more of: embedded software and systems; FPGA applications and tools; hardware design; machine learning; networking; and security.

 

Minimum of 12 years of relevant experience, typically including leading a university department or a major industrial research group.
