[Apologies to subscribers of haskell at haskell.org, where this message
already appeared, but it was suggested that haskell-cafe might be a
better place to reach potential applicants.]

The Stanford Secure Computer Systems research group seeks an experienced
Haskell programmer to participate in research on secure, robust software
systems. The primary responsibility will be to collaborate closely with
other researchers in building a Haskell web framework that achieves
security through a novel approach to dynamic information flow control.

The job will provide access to Stanford's world-leading Computer Science
faculty and students; it will furthermore allow considerable freedom to
pursue other collaborations and side projects that advance the state of the
art in host security and produce scientific publications. To maximize
impact, software developed as part of these efforts will be released under
a free-software license; moreover, duties may include developing
documentation or educational materials that promote adoption of the
research output or of Haskell in general.

The position requires significant Haskell expertise, including knowledge of
the Glasgow Haskell Compiler (ghc), optimization pragmas, the foreign
function interface, debugging, and performance-tuning. In addition, while
not required, any of the following qualifications will be helpful and
should be highlighted in applications:

- Experience publishing or maintaining a package on hackage.
- Experience programming in C.
- Knowledge of web programming and JavaScript.
- A broad understanding of operating systems and networking concepts.
- A Ph.D. in Computer Science.
- Previous research or peer-reviewed publications.

This is a two-year fixed-term position with the possibility of
extension. While the position can potentially become permanent, we also
welcome applicants who view it as a stepping stone to a research or faculty
career elsewhere or to a start-up company. The faculty members involved in
this project have a track record of placing students, staff, and
post-doctoral researchers at prestigious institutions and will provide a
level of mentoring appropriate to the successful candidate's qualifications
and ambitions.

Note that Stanford can sponsor visas for foreign nationals when necessary.
