We have a couple of M.S., M.S. integrated Ph.D, and Ph.D. openings for the National Scholarship (국비) and KAIST scholarship (카장).
  • Undergraduate Students:
    We also have openings for undergraduate research (URP, individual research) and summer/winter internship. If interested, please send your C.V. and transcript to Prof. Jung.

TIP! Welcome to CAMEL! We want to remind you that while it is possible to join our lab after admission, the National Scholarship (국비) openings of CAMEL tend to fill up quickly. We have observed instances where interested students were unable to become members, even after successfully completing the admission process. If joining CAMEL is your top priority, we highly recommend that you contact us as soon as possible. Alternatively, you can attend our summer or fall CAMEL intensive seminars to learn more about our lab and research. By taking these steps, you'll increase your chances of becoming a member of our team. For more information, please feel free to reach out to us at

What We Are Doing? (2 minutes introduction -- Korean )

Our research endeavors are aimed at exploring and investigating computer and memory architecture that embodies reliability, robustness, safety, and intelligence. Our pursuits extend to include emerging Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) technology, as we seek to identify innovative approaches that can confer these qualities to next-generation systems such as many-core, graphic processing units, persistent memory systems, embedded systems, high-performance computing, and solid-state disks.

Our primary research interests are in advanced computer architecture and operating systems (OS), with a particular emphasis on the hardware/software interface and collaboration to enhance the design of parallel system computing. Our goal is to develop novel and efficient hardware/software cooperative techniques that can overcome the fundamental performance, security, robustness, reliability, and efficiency challenges that plague current and future computer systems. Additionally, we seek to expand our research scope to encompass emerging areas such as biocomputing, big-data, cloud-computing, and architectures. We strive to advance the frontiers of knowledge by conducting research that is not only theoretically sound but also has practical applications. Our work is driven by a passion for excellence, a commitment to innovation, and a relentless pursuit of cutting-edge solutions to real-world problems. We are constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible in computer and memory architecture to create systems that are more intelligent, efficient, and secure, and that can enable a wide range of applications that were previously unimaginable.

Current research topics of our ongoing projects are as follows:

  • Getting emerging NVM memory technologies closer to computational resources such as multi-core and many-core units
  • New operating systems (OS) by taking into account large, persistent and durable memory
  • Developing software-defined solid state disks for massive in-storage processing
  • Designing passive persistent NVM modules and next-generation solid-state disks
  • Large-scale resistive/memristor random access memory for whole-persistent HPC/Data-center systems
  • Architecting efficient computing systems with better memory-level parallelism
  • NVM-aware new design for open-licensed processor platform (e.g., RISC-V)


Are you a bright, creative, self-motivated, and hardworking student or trainee interested in cutting-edge research in computer architecture and operating systems? We invite you to explore opportunities to join our team and work on groundbreaking projects in the following areas:

  • Advanced computer architecture
  • Cache coherent interconnect and composable architectures/systems
  • Emerging non-volatile memory systems and solid state disk architecture
  • Multi-core and many-core architecture
  • Low-power DRAM hardware/software co-design
  • Advanced heterogeneous computing (GPU, FPGA, MIC, etc.)
  • High performance computing/Data-center architecture design.
  • Kernel-level IO stack and native/parallel file system design.

We have a couple of openings for Ph.D. students starting in Spring/Fall. Preference will be given to candidates with in-depth knowledge in computer architecture, memory, operating systems, and a strong mathematical background. All our lab members will receive financial support and tuition waivers. Qualified Ph.D. students are expected to be familiar with top-notch research demonstrated at top-tier conferences in the computer architecture and operating system areas.

We are also looking for students, visiting researchers, and post-docs interested in interdisciplinary research regarding hardware/software interaction, fault tolerance, power model, and energy-efficient system design. If you are passionate about producing world-class systems and becoming an architecture and/or system researcher, please email your application, including your resume, research plan, and a list of publication to the following contact information. We look forward to hearing from you and exploring the possibility of working together on groundbreaking research!
