Research Position at the Object Systems Group of the University of Geneva

One research position is available at the Object Systems Group in
Geneva, Switzerland. The position is available immediately for an
initial period of six months.

The Object Systems Group was founded in 1986 by Prof. Dennis
Tsichritzis. It is part of the Centre Universitaire d'Informatique at
the University of Geneva. The OSG carries out research in
object-oriented technologies with a strong emphasis on programming
languages and multimedia applications. The group has strong links with
the GMD in Germany and collaborates with numerous research groups in
European and Swiss projects.

The OSG is starting a research track on Mobile Object Systems (also
called mobile software agents). A mobile object system allows webs of
objects to move from node to node over a network carrying state and
some portion of their code. The project involves the development and
implementation of a programming language which provides linguistic
support for mobile object systems while avoiding the restrictions and
inefficiencies of languages such as Java or Telescript.

The individual will will work with other research scientists, and
graduate students on the design and implementation of the programming

The successful applicant will have completed a PhD in Computer Science
(M.Sc. may be acceptable in special cases), and will demonstrate
experience in the following areas:

* OO programming language implementation and compilers,
* distributed systems,
* UNIX and C.

Working language is English. Starting salary for applicants with a
PhD is around 60K $US / year. Applicants with a M.Sc. may be
considered for acceptance in the PhD program.

Subject: Compiler position in RTP

I am looking for an individual with a good knowledge of context free
grammars, compiler tools (in this case, the pcyacc parser generator is
used), and code generation and optimization techniques. Getting good
performance from the code gen in the presence of some interesting
constraints is one of the challenges of the immediate project at hand.
This is a full time, regular job, for a strong compiler designer who
has the right to work status in the US and at least a good 3 year work
history in the commercial marketplace in compiler design. Interested
individuals should contact me.
