The Architecture and Language Implementation group of the Department of
Computer Science, University of Massachusetts at Amherst seeks a
post-doctoral researcher to join our laboratory. Our current researcher,
Dr. Stephen Blackburn, will be leaving in about a year and we would prefer
a person who could overlap with him, starting sometime between June 2001
and January 2002. We have funding for about 2.5 - 3 years.

We are engaged in work on garbage collection, compiler optimization, and
persistent and distributed systems. We have our own compiler infrastructure
(Scale, written in Java) as well as a source license to IBM's Jalapeno Java
Virtual Machine. Focus for this researcher is to be Java performance, for
garbage collection, persistence, or distributed shared memory -- or,
something else if you can convince me :-). We have a group of about 15,
including 3 professors, a staff programmer, and graduate student research
assistants, a significant portion of which are engaged in Scale or Jalapeno
work. We are also concerned with developing and simulating new hardware
architectural ideas, simulators to support such work, dynamic management of
energy/power, and dynamic and adaptive performance improvement
(particularly of memory accesses) in general.

We have a good track record in developing and evaluating gc, persistence,
and OO language implementation mechanisms, including the Mature Object
Space (Train) algorithm used in some commercial Java systems.

If you have a serious interest, send me email and I'll forward application
