Research Programmer for Fortran D Compiler Development

The Center for Research on Parallel Computation (CRPC) is seeking a
talented individual to participate in the design and implementation of the
Fortran D compiler under the direction of Dr. Ken Kennedy at Rice
University. The compiler is being implemented in C++. Fortran D is a
predecessor of the recently announced High-Performance Fortran (HPF)
dialect. The successful candidate will work with a group of researchers on
designing and implementing the next generation compiler for parallel
machines. Experience must include knowledge of data flow, dependence
analysis and optimization techniques. Experience programming parallel
machines is considered a plus. An M.S. or equivalent experience in
computer science and software development is required.

For more information on how to apply for this position please send a note

Subject: Predoctoral Appointments at Argonne Still Open
Organization: Argonne National Laboratory, Chicago, Illinois
Date: Mon, 21 Feb 1994 21:35:35 GMT

                                            Predoctoral Positions
                        Mathematics and Computer Science Division
                                      Argonne National Laboratory

Argonne National Laboratory invites outstanding candidates to apply for
two predoctoral positions in the Mathematics and Computer Science
Division. Because these positions were first posted in mid-December,
shortly before the holiday, there was concern that it may have failed to
reach many students due to expiration of the original post. We are still
accepting applications for these positions.

The purpose of the predoctoral appointment is to offer outreach
opportunities for developing the full potential (i.e., Ph.D. degree) of
underutilized protected groups. A divisional mentor will assist
participants in preparing a thesis proposal, enrolling in a doctoral
program, and in returning to Argonne for subsequent summers, thesis
appointments, and postdoctoral appointments.

The predoctoral appointees will participate in an exciting research and
development project designing and implementing new parallel programming
languages and tools.

The first appointee will focus on the design and implementation of a
compiler for Fortran M, a parallel extension to Fortran. Experience in
compilers is desirable.

The second appointee will focus on the design and implementation of a
parallel, threaded run-time system called Nexus, used as a compiler target
for Fortran M and other parallel languages. Experience in threads and
parallel programming is desirable.

Candidates should have knowledge and experience in the following areas:
programming with C, C++, and Fortran in a Unix environment; parallel
programming tools; programming language design; compilers; and parallel
applications. A good knowledge of computer architecture and computer
systems organization is preferred. The successful candidates will create,
maintain, and support high-quality, imaginative software on a wide variety
of computers, including networks of workstations and massively parallel
supercomputers, such as our 128-node IBM 9076 Scalable POWER-Parallel
System 1 and a 512-processor Intel Paragon.

Applicants must have received their M.S. not more than three years prior
to the beginning of the appointment. Applications must be addressed to
Walter McFall, Box mcs-predoc, Employment and Placement, Argonne National
Laboratory, 9700 S. Cass Avenue, Argonne, IL 60439, and must include a
resume' and the names and addresses of three references. For further
information, contact Steven Tuecke (; 708-252-7162).
Please email a copy of your application this address as well.

Initial appointments are for a period of one year, but may be extended in
increments of one year or less, to a maximum of two years. U.S. citizens
and/or permanent residents are eligible to participate in this program.

Argonne is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.
