            Optimisation Techniques for High Performance Computing

Applications are invited for a research position, at the level of
either Postdoctoral Research Associateship or Postgraduate Research
Studentship, to work on the EC funded Long Term Research project
"MHAOTEU". The goal of this research project is to develop methods and
tools for interactive optimisation of memory hierarchy behaviour in
computationally-intensive applications. This 3-year project is a
collaboration between academic institutions and industrial partners
from the UK, France and Spain.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, self-motivated candidate, with a
good first degree in Computer Science, and a strong interest in one or
more of the following topics:

        program analysis and optimisation
        program transformations
        dynamic program behaviour
        caches and memory hierarchies
        interactive software engineering tools

Applicants for the Postdoctoral Research Associateship will also hold,
or be nearing completion of, a PhD in an area closely related to one
of the above topics.

This dynamic project involves close interaction with our European
partners at Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (Barcelona), INRIA
and University of Versailles (Paris), EPC Ltd (Edinburgh), and ONERA
(Paris). Please refer to the web page : ml for further
