JRuby related PhD position

I hope this fits within the list’s tolerance for job postings. It is
is really looking like the performance of JRuby will be one of the
main focuses of the project.

One funded Ph.D. position at CAS Atlantic 1 (a joint project of UNB
and IBM) is available January 1, 2013 in the general area of dynamic
language support for the Java Virtual Machine. Topics of interest
include high performance implementations strategies for JSR 292, and
more generally the performance of dynamic languages such as JRuby,
Jython/JPython, Clojure, and PHP on the JVM. The ideal applicant
would have background in programming languages, virtual machines, and
low-level programming in C/C++.

Applicants should have a Master’s degree or a strong Bachelors degree
in Computer Science or a related discipline. PhD student funding is
approximately CAD 24,000 per year, with higher funding available for
exceptional candidates. The position will be on the campus of the
University of New Brunswick, in Fredericton, New Brunswick Canada. We
have a growing team with expertise in JVM internals, and we are
working closely with key people at IBM.
