Hi folks,

The SFI Hive is looking to hire a programmer to help move Swarm closer
to the goal of a usable, distributed, and flexible simulation package.
Anybody interested?

JOB DESCRIPTION: Kernel Programmer
  Reports to:      Vice President of Academic Affairs
  Salary Level:    Exempt, Research Technician (37.5 hours per week)
                   $45,000-$50,000 depending on experience

  Integrates Swarm with popular distributed object systems to
  facilitate object-oriented language interoperability and inter-Swarm
  (coarse-grained) parallelization.  Implements and extends
  design for intra-Swarm (fine-grained) parallelization of the Swarm
  kernel.  Helps to implement language and interface support for
  making Swarm usable in popular integrated development environments.
  This is an SFI full-time position for one year only, but
  extension may be possible.
  Seven years of programming experience
  Demonstrated experience in some of the following:
     o Implementation of high-level programming languages
     o Distributed systems
     o Concurrent systems
  Prepared to take on any tasks on the critical path
  This a software development position. 

  Work to be done includes:
     o Implementation of support for network distribution of hierarchial
       temporal spaces (Swarms).
     o Kernel enhancements for fine-grained parallelization of Swarm
     o Enhancements for multi-processor and multi-host distribution
       of agents spanning configurable multidimensional environments.
     o Development of a hierarchical browser for building and
       inspecting temporal data structures.
     o Enhancements to one or more CORBA implementations to support
       Objective C.
     o Integration of Swarm with popular integrated development environments
       (especially Java-based environments). 

  The successful candidate will be skilled at identifying,
  understanding, fixing, and preventing performance problems.

To apply for this position, please send us by August 30, 1998 a copy of
your resume and a letter describing the experience that you think
qualifies you for the position:
