Subject: Positions at Xerox PARC, Palo Alto CA
Date: Mon, 7 Nov 1994 17:16:38 PST

The Xerox Palo Alto Research Center has three openings as part of a
project exploring new techniques to make it possible for programmers to
write very high-level, modular code without sacrificing performance.
Our approach is based on domain specific implementation guidance coupled
with advanced general purpose techniques including: meta-level
protocols, partial evaluation, and run-time code generation.

The project methodology is based on collaborating with other PARC
researchers to develop solutions to their specific software development
needs, and then, over time, generalizing those solutions into more
broadly applicable tools and techniques.

We are looking for renaissance computer scientists with experience in
several of the following areas: language techniques such as partial
evaluation, program synthesis and run-time code generation; modern OS
architectures; modern hardware architectures; object-oriented
programming, high-level programming languages (e.g. LISP, SML, etc) and
computational reflection.

While no one candidate will have all of the above skills, all candidates
must have exceptional software building skills; they must be able to
understand and implement complex techniques, and rapidly evolve and
redesign those implementations based on experience with them.
Candidates also need the personal skills required to work with other
researchers who will be making day-to-day use of the systems we will be
developing. One of these positions may involve project management
responsibility as well.

Applicants should send a resume and 2 letters of recommendation to:

The Santa Clara location of Intel Corporation has an exciting
opportunity for an experienced computer architect/performance analyst.
As a member of a small team, this person will participate in the
architectural definition of next generation Intel processors. Initial
focus will be on performance analysis issues and development of tools to
evaluate new architectural features, and the efficiency of code
generated by compilers. We are looking for a skilled individual that
can propose improved methods of evaluating processor architectures, and
can communicate back their analysis to different groups within the

Skills and Experience Required:

Computer Architecture
Compiler Techniques
Code Generation/Optimization
Application Performance Analysis
Simulation/Performance Analysis Tools

MSCS/EE/CE (or equivalent)

Subject: WEB TeX -> MWeb TeX -> OWeb TeX programmers wanted
Date: Fri, 11 Nov 1994 00:21:58
Organization: ATLIS Publishing

The company I work for is considering a major undertaking. We would like
to create a multi-threaded version of TeX. The approach we would like to
take is to convert the WEB (Pascal) version of TeX into a MWEB (Modula-2)
of TeX, and from there move to OWEB (Oberon or Oberon-2 WEB which currently
does not yet exist).

To do this we would need programmers who are well versed in WEB, Pascal,
Modula-2 and Oberon. The first target platform would be OS/2. To
completely control development it may be necessary to implement our own
version of an Oberon (or Oberon-2) compiler. Knowledge of compiler
construction and OS/2 are also needed.

We need to know if we can find people who could undertake this challanging
task. If you would be interested in working on this project I would like
to hear from you.
