Subject: student summer internships at Berkeley

Organization: International Computer Science Institute, Berkeley, CA, U.S.A.

The International Computer Science Institute (ICSI) is soliciting
applications for their student summer internship program in Europe.
The program is open to advanced graduate students in computer science
at American universities.

Applicants don't need to be U.S. citizens OR permanent residents of
the U.S. to be eligible for the program. The selection process is
solely based on merit and works roughly as follows: an application is
submitted to ICSI where an initial selection takes place. ICSI does
not have special application forms for the summer internship
program. A cover letter stating the applicants intentions,
transcripts, and one or two letters of recommendation is sufficient.
It would also be very helpful if the applicant could provide a short
proposal stating what he/she is interested in and the particular
fields he/she would want to work in. The selected applications will
be forwarded to those participating research labs that best match the
applicants scientific interest and background. Depending on the
applicants interest, background, and research proposal her/his
application might be send to several of the research labs. It is the
research labs that make the final decision.

Current sponsor nations are Germany, Italy and Switzerland. ICSI is
*not* able to support or process applications for internships in
non-sponsor nations.

Graduate students which have been invited by research labs in ICSI
sponsor nations due to their own initiative or existing collaborations
can apply for travel grants. However, ICSI will not be able to provide
financial support beyond travel grants.

Financial support provided by the hosting research lab is
approximately $1800 per month for 3 month while ICSI provides travel
grants up to $1500.

Submit applications including at least one letter of recommendation,
a list of completed course work, and a statement of intent to:

International Computer Science Institute
-Summer Internship Program
1947 Center Street, Suite 600
Berkley, CA 94704

* DEADLINE March 1, 1997 *

Note: ICSI is only a clearinghouse for summer internship
applications. ICSI is not able to answer question concerning specific
research activities within participating research labs. In the past
summer interns have been working in such areas as computer vision,
expert systems, knowledge representation, natural language processing,
software engineering, software tool development, etc..

Organization: Universitaet Trier

Prof. Dr. Helmut Seidl,
Dr. Christoph W. Kessler
Lehrstuhl fuer Praktische Informatik II
FB IV - Informatik
University of Trier
D-54286 Trier, Germany


The chair of compiler construction at the computer science department
of the University of Trier offers a research assistant position (3/4
BAT IIa) in the project SPARAMAT supported by the Deutsche
Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). The position is limited to 2 years.
Under certain circumstances it can be graded up to 1/1 BAT IIa (for
details see below).

The SPARAMAT project will work out the foundation for a system which
identifies operations on sparse matrices in numerical source programs
(Fortran, C) by pattern matching techniques, with the goal of
exploiting the derived information for the knowledge--based automatic
parallelization of the source program.

Essential for this position is a diploma degree (M.Sc.) in computer
science obtained at a university. Beyond well-founded knowledge in
the analysis and compilation of imperative programs, we expect good
programming skills, cooperation abilities, and the readiness to
familiarize with the issue within short time. Knowledge from
numerical mathematics is welcome.

The department offers the possibility to acquire a PhD degree in
computer science.

The University of Trier aims at increasing the rate of female
scientists and encourages qualified women to apply.

Please send your application (including CV, list of publications,
reports and, if possible, a recommendation letter by a university
professor) until March 1, 1997 to the director of the SPARAMAT
project, Prof. Dr. Helmut Seidl, Lehrstuhl fuer Prakt. Informatik II,
FB IV - Informatik, Universitaet Trier, D-54286 Trier, Germany.

Note: According to the DFG guidelines, the research assistant can get
a 1/1 BAT IIa position only if (s)he has a PhD degree or a special
permission by DFG which requires an application for an equivalent job
in industry being accepted by a company. Otherwise we can pay only
3/4 BAT IIa.
