Subject: Positions in the Compose group at IRISA
Date: Tue, 24 Mar 1998 15:25:01 +0100
Organization: Irisa, Rennes (FR)

The Partial Evaluation Group at INRIA/IRISA (Rennes, France) is
offering two positions to participate in the design and developpement
of the partial evaluation system called TEMPO.


          [*] Post-doctoral (Qualification: Ph.D. in Computer Science)

          [*] Programmer (Qualification: M.SC. in Computer Science)

The post-doctoral position is funded for one to two years and the
programmer position for one year. After one year, the programmer
position could lead to a Ph.D. These positions are not restricted by
citizenship. They are starting as soon as possible.



The research work is to be done in the Compose Group at INRIA/ IRISA
(Rennes, France). This group mainly consists of 1 faculty member, 5
research scientists, 4 Ph.D. students, and 1 research assistant. More
information about the place and the research topics of the group can
be obtained from our home page.

Research Area

The Compose group at IRISA focuses on the development of Adaptive
Software. Adaptive software is an approach aimed at reconciling
generality and performance. It is based on a program transformation
technique called Partial Evaluation which consists of specializing
programs with respect to invariants. Utilizing these invariants allows
a general system to be instantiated for a particular environment. The
instantiated system is optimized in the sense that all the operations
that depended on the invariants have been performed. Our work is being
applied to various areas including operating systems, computer
graphics, and scientific code.

Research Project

The research project is aimed at improving and extending Tempo. The
successful candidate for the post-doctoral position will conduct
research in program transformation, and program analysis. The
programmer will provide support for the development of
prototypes. Good programming skills in SML and C are required.

Applicants should have a solid background in some of the areas
mentioned above. To apply, please send a resume, the name of three
references, and a statement of purpose. Applications will be reviewed
as they arrive. Positions are subject to final authorization.

Please contact us at if you need further
