The Fox project on Advanced Language Technology for Extensible Systems
under the direction of Robert Harper, Peter Lee, and Frank Pfenning is
looking for a postdoctoral researcher.  Applicants should have
background and interests in one or more of the following areas:

  - design and implementation of ML and related languages
  - advanced type systems, proof-carrying code and certifying compilation
  - embedded systems, network software and safety infrastructure

The ideal candidate will have credentials in system building and a
lively interest in language theory.  Participation in teaching
activities is also encouraged.  The appointment is initially for one
year with a potential renewal for a second year.  Salary is negotiable
and commensurate with experience.

The Fox project is working to demonstrate the viability and benefits of
advanced languages for programming real-world systems, with an emphasis
on networking, mobile code, and related safety and efficiency problems.
