                                                    250 University Ave.
                                                    Palo Alto, CA 94301

The Western Research Laboratory is a computer systems research group
that was founded in 1982. At present we have a total of 21 full-time
researchers. Our focus is computer science research relevant to the
design and application of mainstream, high-performance, balanced
computer systems. We test our ideas by designing, building and using
real systems. Our goal is to develop new hardware and software design
principles that are later used in Digital's products. Examples of
recent lab projects that you may have heard of include the AltaVista
Web Search Engine, and the ATOM program instrumentation system.

Every summer WRL employs several graduate students on projects related
to our research efforts. We are now accepting applications for
positions during the upcoming summer (1997). The positions usually
involve work which is of use to the full-time researchers and of a
scope that can reasonably be completed during the summer months.

To qualify, a student should be enrolled in a PhD program, although
exceptional Masters students will also be considered. While the
starting and ending times for these jobs are flexible and will depend
on a student's individual schedule, individuals will typically be
expected to spend 3 months at WRL.

WRL is located in the heart of charming downtown Palo Alto, within
walking distance to a variety of restaurants and shops, and next to
the Stanford University campus. Palo Alto is situated 30 miles south
of San Francisco.

Ongoing research projects span the following areas:

            Performance Studies of User and System Code (esp. database applications)
            Parallel Applications
            Architectural Simulation
            Hardware and Software for Distributed Shared Memory
            Memory Hierarchies and Superscalar Processor Microarchitecture
            Scalable Computer Systems
            Small Portable Computer and Communications Systems
            Distributed Systems
            Operating Systems
            File Systems
            Internet Performance
            Innovative WWW Applications
            Graphics Hardware
            Interprocedural Compiler Optimizations
            Dynamic Code Generation

The above list is not necessarily complete and we encourage excellent
students interested in related areas to apply.

See or send mail to for more information about our lab.


1. E-mail your resume to with "INTERN RESUME"
      in the subject line. Please ensure that your resume is in plain
      ASCII, not PostScript, and includes the names and e-mail addresses of
      three technical references. It will be helpful if your message
      specifies two or three research areas listed above that you are
      most interested in. You are also encouraged to provide URLs to
      related information and/or to Postscript copies of your resume.

2. Arrange to have each of your references send a letter of recommendation
      to ASCII is preferred, but PostScript is
      acceptable too. It is your responsibility to ensure that the letters
      are sent to us; WRL will not contact your references for you.

For full consideration, your resume and recommendation letters must be
received by February 14th. We expect decisions will be made on or
before March 31st.
