Might I humbly suggest that this is going to severely limit your
hiring options?  You're looking for the intersection of sets of people

- Have a BS in computer science (cuts out a fair number of people)
- Graduated from a "top university" (cuts out a *lot* of people)
- Is familiar with Java (cuts out some people)
- Is skilled with Haskell (a fair bet for many on this mailing list, at least)
- Can work in the Manhattan area (cuts out a *lot* of people)

I'm not sure how many people *exist* who meet all these criteria.  ;-)
 I'd probably start by dropping your "top university" requirement,
since I don't think it's all that relevant if you find your candidate
has the skills you're looking for.  You might even find someone who
fits yet doesn't have a CompSci BS degree; you can phrase it as "a BS
in computer science or an equivalent strong background in theoretical
computer science" or somesuch, as appropriate.
