Title: Java on CUDA Architecture
Author: Jan Strnad, Czech Technical University in Prague
Advisor: Zdenek Konfrst, PhD


NVIDIA is looking for a System Software Development Manager to lead a team of world-class developers working with the CUDA driver and runtime software. If you're an experienced software manager with excellent technical and leadership skills, apply to be a part of the GPU computing revolution on the inside.

Morpheus Medical specializes in computational processing applied to health care. The company has been incubated at Stanford University and is based at the heart of Silicon Valley. Its vision is to develop a suite of software products that can enhance critical diagnostics and treatment in the human body. The company's first application is in the cardiac space, specifically heart failure. Morpheus is seeking a talented software engineer with C++ and Java experience. GPGPU⁄CUDA experience is desired.
