Subject: Architecture/compilers research and staff positions at Univ of Utah

Organization: University of Utah, Department of Computer Science
Reply-To: (John Carter)

If you are interested in being involved in leading edge memory
architecture research, read on. The Impulse project at the University
of Utah has several staff and post-doc openings for smart people with
VLSI, compiler, or architecture design skills. University research is
both technically challenging and intellectually stimulating, and we
are offering industry- -competitive salaries, so it doesn't require
you to sacrifice your salary.

WHAT IS IMPULSE? We are a research project that is attacking the
growing memory bottleneck problem. Specifically, we are designing a
novel memory controller that supports an (optional) extra level of
address indirection to give applications fine-grained control over how
their data is mapped into the processor cache(s). Many important
applications (e.g., commercial database, multimedia, and sparse matrix
codes) have fairly poor memory locality, and thus put tremendous
pressure on conventional memory systems. Performance of these
applications is memory-bound, often far from the peak potential
performance available for a given microprocessor. Impulse is
generously sponsored by DARPA (the Defense Advanced Research Projects
Agency) and AFRL (the Air Force Research Laboratory).

WHAT OPENINGS ARE AVAILABLE? We have 3 student and 2-3 staff/post-doc
positions available immediately. We are looking for people with
skills in a number of areas, including: VLSI/ASIC design, memory
architecture design, compiler development, and data intensive
applications (e.g., databases, multimedia, and sparse matrix codes).
We are especially interested in people with real hardware design and
implementation skills, because unlike many research projects, we are
planning to actually implement Impulse in custom VLSI and build a
working prototype. Although the above skills are at the top of our
needs list, we can train interested and intelligent people with skills
in other areas and a strong CS or EE background.

HOW CAN I LEARN MORE? Check out for a more complete technical,
list of key personnel, and downloadable publications related to

UTAH?!? Despite its reputation as a desert, Utah is by no means
`dry', in any sense of the word. Salt Lake City, at the foot of the
Wasatch Front along the western edge of the Rocky Mountains, is the
heart of a large metropolitan area -- easily large enough to offer
diverse cultural resources (i.e., there are lots of people here like
you). On top of Salt Lake City's metropolitan attractions, the area
has truly unparalleled outdoor recreation opportunities, ranging from
seven world class ski resorts within 45 minutes, to rock climbing,
mountain biking (*real* mountain biking), and white water rafting in
the spectacular red rock country of Southern Utah. Ten national parks
lie less than a day's drive away, and numerous recreation and
wilderness areas are even closer. Check out for details on life here,
including some cool pictures (yes, those mountains are real, and are
immediately off campus!).

FOLLOWING UP: If you are interested in applying for a staff or postdoc
position on the Impulse project, send a resume with at least 3
references and a brief cover letter describing your interests and
talents to John Carter. If you are interested in pursuing an MS or
PhD in a topic related to Impulse, send a brief description of your
background and interests, including your previous education background
and any research experience you have. Postcript, ASCII, or paper are
all fine. Snail mail, email, and fax contact information is listed

Subject: Consumer electronics Garage Startup needs compiler/interpreter help

This product relates to the set top box/digital television space,
though it is not a set top box(and its not a card that makes your PC a
set top box).Our company has several patents pending and believes the
product's technology will be one of the core elements in the next
generation of digital home technology.

We are developing a consumer electronics product for the home related
to the set top box space. We are about to produce our first
prototypes, and need help developing a small piece of code. It is a
small HTML type interpreter. It is not HTML, but that is the closest
thing I can refer to in public.

This project has not yet been venture funded. We are fininshing up the
hardware prototype, and now need to begin working on the software
layer. You would be offered defered cash compensation and an equity
position in the project.

If you have the resources to work uncompensated for a period of time,
and the inclination to work on something amazingly cool, drop me a
line at

University of New Mexico
Department of Computer Science

Faculty Position Available

Applications are invited for a senior-level systems position in the
Computer Science Department to begin in Spring 1999. Applicants must
have a doctorate in Computer Science or a closely related field,
strong research accomplishments, proven track record of building a
research-oriented systems group, and a commitment to teaching
excellence at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.

The department offers B.S. (accredited by CSAB), M.S., and
Ph.D. degrees; it has 15 tenure-line faculty, with 85 graduate and 120
undergraduate students. The department has a special emphasis on
interdisciplinary research. Active research programs include:
adaptive computation, artificial intelligence, automated reasoning,
computer security, data mining, distributed operating systems,
experimental algorithmics, and scientific visualization. The
department has two NSF Young Investigators, an NSF Infrastructure
grant, and close ties to the Maui High-Performance Computing Center.

UNM also provides unique research opportunities for faculty and
students due to its close proximity to the Santa Fe Institute, Sandia
and Los Alamos National Laboratories, and the USAF Research Laboratory
(Phillips). Albuquerque offers a high quality of living, including
the amenities of New Mexico's major metropolitan area, easy access to
outdoor activities and rural living, and a moderate year-round
climate. See for additional information.

Applications must be received by August 21, 1998. Inquiries and
applications (including vita, personal statement, and names of at
least three references) should be addressed to:
