Subject: job opportunities in partial evaluation, France
Date: 11 Aug 1997 12:22:47 GMT
Organization: IRISA, Campus de Beaulieu, 35042 Rennes Cedex, FRANCE

- Positions:

We are looking for two software engineers for an 18 months contract.
Applicants should have a PhD in computer science. The positions are
not restricted by citizenship. Funding of positions is pending.

- Research Area:

The COMPOSE group at IRISA focuses on the development Adaptive
Software. Adaptive software is an approach aimed at reconciling
generality and performance. It is based on a program transformation
technique called Partial Evaluation which consists of specializing
programs with respect to invariants. Utilizing these invariants allows
a general system to be instantiated for a particular environment. The
instantiated system is optimized in the sense that all the operations
that depended on the invariants have been performed. We are working
on a system that performs specialization of imperative languages, at
compile time as well as run time. It is being applied to various
areas ranging from operating systems to graphics.

- Required Background:

The research work consists in developing partial evaluation techniques
for distributed, real-time systems, in particular for telecommunication
systems. Applicants should have a PhD in computer science and a solid
background in programming languages, compilation and operating systems.

- Context:

The research work is to be done in the COMPOSE Group at IRISA
(Brittany, France). This group mainly consists of 1 faculty member,
1 research scientist, 2 software engineers, 2 post-doc and 6 PhD
students. More information about the place and the research topics
of the group can be obtained from

- Application:

To apply send a resume, the name of three references, and a statement
of purpose to Applications should be
received as soon as possible and, in any case, before August 25th
1997. Positions are subject to final authorization.

Sun's Advanced Processor Architecture and Software Group is soliciting
resumes from motivated individuals interested in advancing the
state-of-the-art for our UltraSparc and JavaChip families. If your
interests are in CPU microarchitecture, JVM implementation, Java dynamic
compiler and/or static compiler backend research and development, Java
and conventional benchmark performance analysis, please send us a resume
or call:

Lisa Blos-Johnson
PH (408) 774-8297
FAX (408) 328-8812

We have immediate openings for people whose interests include
any of the following:

                o CPU microarchitecture/ISA evaluation
                o Memory hierarchy management techniques
o Java virtual machine and dynamic compiler implementation
                o Static compiler backend prototyping
o Java and conventional benchmark performance analysis
o Multimedia and Sun VIS (Visual Instruction Set) studies

We are seeking highly motivated individuals who want to work with the
leading edge processor and language implementation technologies for
Java as well conventional languages, in a company that started all
this excitement. We will consider both new college graduates and
experienced engineers. Talk to us!
