Organization: Oregon Graduate Institute

The Pacific Software Research Center, (
) at the Oregon Graduate Institute is now recruiting highly qualified
individuals at all levels. We currently have openings for faculty (at
all ranks), post-doctoral positions, programmers, and Ph.D. students.

The Center explores declarative techniques for dramatically improving
the software development process. The Center is composed of faculty
(John Launchbury, James Hook, Richard Kieburtz, Tim Sheard, and Andrew
Tolmach), graduate students and professional staff, and currently
numbers over a dozen full-time technical people.

Qualification lists for each of the positions follow below, as well as
a description of the center's current activities. The positions will
remain opened until filled.

- ------------------------------------


FACULTY POSITIONS - Successful candidates will possess a Ph.D. in
computer science or some closely related area. They will have
research interests which lie with-in arms length of existing research
interests of the center, and whose work will be complimentary to
existing personnel. They will build a strong research program that
publishes new and novel results, and attracts excellent students.
They will be well acquainted with grant and proposal writing, and
manage research projects within the center employing post-docs,
programmers, students and professional staff.

The center is recruiting faculty at all ranks. In the Pacific Software
Research Center, the faculty are responsible for attracting external
funding to reach the centers goals. It is the policy of the Center for
senior faculty to mentor junior faculty. All faculty are expected to
help set the Center's policy and direction.

POST-DOCTORAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATE (position #CSE 1-1-98)- Successful
candidates will be responsible for daily project operations; build large
complex systems using state of the art functional language technology;
be involved in team efforts with responsibilities for meeting project
be responsible for planning and performing research work to ensure
project success; participate in proposal writing. Qualifications
These positions require a Ph.D. in a relevant field, together with
knowledge of software engineering principles and significant knowledge
and experience implementing large systems with functional languages;
excellent communications skills and the ability to work in teams; a
solid grounding in programming languages and compiler construction or
in verification technology. Specific areas of interest include:
Software-enabled control Domain-specific languages as carrier for
formal methods, Hardware Specification and Verification, DSL
construction infrastructure, Industrial DSL demonstrations, functional
language infrastructure.

PROGRAMMER STAFF (position #CSE 3-1-98) - Successful candidates will
have extensive knowledge in using modern applicative languages (such as
SML and Haskell) to program large complex systems. Knowledge of
integrating such
system with traditional environments (Unix, Windows-95/NT) is a strong
plus. Interests in Software-enabled control, and Domain Specific
Language design would also be useful.

Ph.D. STUDENTS - Successful applicants will have broad knowledge in
computing science plus intense interest in improving the state of the
art in software construction. The applicants will speak English
fluently, work well in teams, be self motivated. Interests in all areas
are encouraged.

The Pacific Software Research Center has active research programs in
compiler technology for functional languages, meta-programming and the
use of design automation tools for software generation, specification,
semantics and implementation of domain specific languages (including
domain analysis), automatic program optimization using fusion and
partial evaluation, the specification of microprocessor
microarchitectures using functional languages, and the use of formal
methods for specification, analysis and verification.

The Oregon Graduate Institute of Science & Technology is an
independent graduate school and research institute located just to the
