Dear all,

I are currently advertising a PhD studentship in functional
programming -- the advert is copied below, and attached.  If
you know of any good candidates who many be interested in this,
or there is a local mailing list for advertising such things,
I would be much obliged if you could pass on the advert.

Best wishes,



             PhD Studentship in Functional Programming

                    School of Computer Science
                   University of Nottingham, UK

Applications are invited for a fully-funded PhD studentship in
the Functional Programming Lab in the School of Computer Science
at the University of Nottingham, starting on 1st October 2011,
under the supervision of Prof Graham Hutton.

The suggested topic for the studentship is to develop a practical
implementation of the worker/wrapper transformation, a simple but
powerful unifying paradigm for program optimisation, but other
ideas for possible topics are welcome too.  The studentship is
for three and a half years, and includes a maintenance grant
of 13,590 UK pounds per year, and tuition fees.

Applicants for the position will require a first-class Honours
degree (or equivalent) in Computer Science and/or Mathematics,
some experience in functional programming, and an aptitude for
mathematical subjects.    Additional desirable attributes include
a Masters degree, and/or some experience in programming language
semantics, implementation and optimisation.  Due to the nature
of the funding, the position is only open to UK citizens, or EU
citizens who have resided in the UK for the last three years.

The successful applicant will work under the supervision of Prof
Graham Hutton in the FP Lab in Nottingham, a leading centre for
research on functional programming.  The group currently comprises
5 academic staff, 1 research fellow, and 10 PhD students.

In order to apply, please submit the following to Prof Graham
Hutton (graham.hutton at nottingham.ac.uk) by 24th June 2011: an
up-to-date copy of your CV (including the results of all your
University examinations to date) along with a brief covering
letter that describes your experience in functional programming,
your reasons for wishing to pursue a PhD in this area, and any
ideas you have regarding possible research directions.

Closing date for applications: 24th June 2011.
