Subject: Predoctoral Appointments at Argonne
Organization: Argonne National Laboratory, Chicago, Illinois
Date: Fri, 10 Dec 1993 18:40:56 GMT

                                            Predoctoral Positions
                        Mathematics and Computer Science Division
                                      Argonne National Laboratory

Argonne National Laboratory invites outstanding candidates to apply for
two predoctoral positions in the Mathematics and Computer Science

The purpose of the predoctoral appointment is to offer outreach
opportunities for developing the full potential (i.e., Ph.D. degree) of
underutilized protected groups. A divisional mentor will assist
participants in preparing a thesis proposal, enrolling in a doctoral
program, and in returning to Argonne for subsequent summers, thesis
appointments, and postdoctoral appointments.

The predoctoral appointees will participate in an exciting research and
development project designing and implementing new parallel programming
languages and tools.

The first appointee will focus on the design and implementation of a
compiler for Fortran M, a parallel extension to Fortran. Experience in
compilers is desirable.

The second appointee will focus on the design and implementation of a
parallel, threaded run-time system called Nexus, used as a compiler target
for Fortran M and other parallel languages. Experience in threads and
parallel programming is desirable.

Candidates should have knowledge and experience in the following areas:
programming with C, C++, and Fortran in a Unix environment; parallel
programming tools, programming language design; compilers; and parallel
applications. A good knowledge of computer architecture and computer
systems organization is preferred. The successful candidates will
create, maintain, and support high-quality, imaginative software on a
wide variety of computers, including networks of workstations and
massively parallel supercomputers, such as our 128-node IBM 9076 Scalable
POWER-Parallel System 1 and a 512-processor Intel Paragon.

Applicants must have received their M.S. not more than three years prior
to the beginning of the appointment. Applications must be addressed to
Walter McFall, Box mcs-predoc, Employment and Placement, Argonne National
Laboratory, 9700 S. Cass Avenue, Argonne, IL 60439, and must include a
resume' and the names and addresses of three references. For further
information, contact Steven Tuecke (; 708-252-7162).

Initial appointments are for a period of one year, but may be extended
in increments of one year or less, to a maximum of two years. U.S.
citizens and/or permanent residents are eligible to participate in this

Argonne is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.


Subject: Chair of Software Systems
Date: Tue, 14 Dec 1993 11:51:29 +0000 (GMT)
From: "Des Watson" <>



The University is creating a new Chair of Software Systems in the Computer
Science & Artificial Intelligence subject group of the School of Cognitive
& Computing Sciences (COGS). Applications are invited from persons with
research strengths in software systems.

The Subject Group is large and highly rated (awarded the highest rank in
each of the last two research-assessment exercises); its current strengths
lie predominantly in theoretical areas. It is hoped that the new
appointment will help to redress this balance. Applicants will be
particularly welcome who have established research records in programming
environments, operating systems, or high-level languages and compilers.
Applicants with a background in software engineering or programming
languages would also be favourably considered.

Informal enquiries about this post may be addressed to the CSAI Subject
Chairman, Dr G.R. Sampson, School of Cognitive & Computing Sciences,
University of Sussex, Falmer, Brighton BN1 9QH (tel. 0273 678525 or
678195, e-mail

Application forms and further details are available from: Ms Victoria Lay,
Personnel Office, Sussex House, University of Sussex, Falmer, Brighton,
BN1 9RE, UK. Tel: (0273) 678021. Closing date for receipt of
applications: February 14, 1994.
