Subject: Research Programmer position at OGI (Oregon)
Organization: Oregon Graduate Institute - Computer Science & Engineering

                        The Pacific Software Research Center
                                                      at the
          Oregon Graduate Institute of Science & Technology

The Pacific Software Research Center seeks a person to take principal
responsibility for the continued development of the Hugs interpreter for the
functional programming language Haskell. While the position involves a lot
of programming, is by no means simply a programming job.

The Haskell language is evolving rapidly: there are exciting developments in
its type system, libraries, foreign language interfaces, storage management,
exception handling, software components, and programming environments.
There will be numerous opportunities for you to contribute to and influence
all these features.

You will be responsible for implementing new features, making sure they work
on a variety of platforms, and responding to bug reports and user feedback.

An early project will be to complete the integration of the Hugs
interpreter with the run-time system of the Glasgow Haskell Compiler. The
goal of this integration is a fully interoperable system capable of
executing a mixture of compiled and byte-code interpreted code. Additional
avenues of development may include integration into a visual programming
environment, and the construction of tools to make this possible.

The successful candidate will be able to work independently or with a small
team. Knowledge of the Haskell and C programming languages and familiarity
with UNIX and Windows NT operating systems will be required. Knowledge of
functional language compilation techniques and of the MS COM interface
standard is a plus. Expert supervision will be available.

You will be a full member of a world-class research group: The Pacific
Software Research Center. The Center explores techniques for improving
processes for software development, including the use of high-level
languages, design automation tools for software generation, and formal
methods for specification, analysis and verification. The Center is
composed of faculty, graduate students and professional staff.

The Pacific Software Research Center is a component of the Department of
Computer Science and Engineering at the Oregon Graduate Institute of Science
& Technology. The Institute is an independent graduate school and research
institute located just to the west of Portland, Oregon.

This is position is funded until December 1999. We are seeking additional
funding and would expect reappointment of the applicant contingent on the
receipt of this funding. We are looking for someone to start as soon as
possible, and the search will close once a qualified candidate is
