Embedded System Architecture Laboratory (ESAL) is a research group in the Department of Electrical Engineering at POSTECH, Pohang, Korea. Targeting the future intelligent computing systems, our research interests include computer architectures, advanced memory systems, signal processing algorithms of VLSI, and embedded system-on-chip designs.
We are actively seeking self-motivated, resourceful, and dedicated students who are interested in the general areas of computer systems. Currently, we have 1~2 openings for graduate courses starting from Sep. 2020 or Mar. 2021. Interested candidates may contact Prof. Sunggu Lee via slee[at]postech.ac.kr.
