[Haskell-cafe] Any ideas how to go about doing a phd in threading?

Really interested in doing a phd on threading.  Any ideas how I'd go about
doing/applying for that?  Basically, threading seems to be the cutting-edge
right out (for a while) as processor frequencies top out, and multicores

I dont have any formal CS training, but I do have a degree in natsci from
Cambridge, quite a few years experience in industry, and anyone who knows me
can attest that I'm highly motivated; a string of opensource work shows that
I'm more interested in having fun than earning money, for a geek's
definition of having fun :-)

No particular preference for language, whatever it takes ;-)   The Haskell
group seems to have a high percentage of phds, and Haskell is a candidate
language for automatic thread management, so seems an appropriate group to
ask about this?

Here's my cv in case it's useful: http://manageddreams.com/CV_PERKINS.pdf
