The Manticore project at the Rochester Institute of Technology (Rochester, 
NY, USA) is offering 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 

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 applicant will be expected to contribute to 
this research effort, which will include both semantic foundations and 
efficient implementations.
