Subject: research assistantship available at Fordham in NYC working on ftnchek
Date: Wed, 01 Jun 2011 16:31:23 -0400


I'm trying to recruit a student to be a graduate research assistant to
begin work in September, at Fordham University in New York City, on a
project requiring a strong background in compilers.

I am the author and maintainer of ftnchek
(, a static analyzer for
finding bugs in Fortran code. In its heyday a decade and more ago,
ftnchek was quite popular with Fortran programmers. However, for some
time now it has been kind of moribund due to its only accepting
Fortran 77 syntax with some Fortran-90 and vendor extensions.

This situation is about to change. I have been awarded a grant that
can support a graduate research assistant, including a stipend and
paying 1/3 of tuition for the academic year. The project will involve
rebuilding ftnchek to accept the full current Fortran standard syntax.
(Ftnchek itself is written in C.)

If you are or know of a graduating senior who is planning to begin a
master's degree program in computer science this September, with a
good background and interest in compilers, please contact me for
details on the assistantship and how to apply to Fordham's
M.S. program in computer science. Position is open to international

Thank you,
