Subject: [pop-users] RA and PhD in concurrent garbage collection (Kent, UK)

Hi all,

Research Assistant and PhD studentship in concurrent garbage collection

The School of Computing at the University of Kent at Canterbury is looking for
a Research Assistant and a PhD student to work in the area of concurrent
garbage collection under the supervision of Richard Jones and Fred Barnes on
the EPSRC-funded project:

  MirrorGC: Garbage Collection for Multicore Systems

The aim of the project is to explore how we can exploit hardware parallelism on
current and emerging platforms, paying particular attention to locality.
Candidates for the Research Assistant post should have experience of designing
and implementing concurrent algorithms, knowledge of modern garbage collection
techniques, and experience of working with large open source systems such as

Applicants for the PhD studentship should have a very good degree in computer
science or a related subject, and a strong interest in programming languages
and their implementation.  Good Java programming skills, and knowledge of
concurrent systems and/or garbage collection would be an advantage. The PhD
studentship covers both fees and maintenance.
