The Manticore project at the Rochester Institute of Technology
(Rochester, NY, USA) is seeking applicants for both a PhD student
position and a 2-year post-doctoral research position.  The Manticore
project (joint with the University of Chicago) is exploring the design
and implementation of a functional programming language with a rich
collection of explicitly- and implicitly-parallel programming
features.  Our research thus far has delivered a compiler and runtime
system capable of demonstrating good parallel speedups on our 16- and
48-core test systems.  See http://www.cs.rit.edu/~mtf/manticore for
papers and more information.

The goal of our next stage of research is to develop declarative
language mechanisms for the controlled use of shared state and
nondeterminism in implicitly-threaded parallel programs in order to
increase their parallel efficiency.  The successful applicants will be
expected to contribute to this research effort, which will include
both semantic foundations and efficient implementations.
