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 2 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.
