Responsibilities*
The assistance is necessary because the Hazel programming environment, the primary research artifact being developed by the group, requires additional research and development effort in order to serve as a suitable foundation for a number of ongoing and future research projects being conducted and planned by the group. The addition of a research scientist with an interest in programming language design will also help to grow and strengthen the community of researchers interested in this important topic in the College.

The research scientist will participate in all aspects of the research group's activities, including designing and implementing new features for Hazel, investigating the theoretical foundations for these features, and evaluating these features by assisting in the design, execution and evaluation of empirical studies. The research scientist will also participate in sponsor relations, student mentoring, and in organizing local events and external meetings. Furthermore, the research scientist will develop new projects and collaborations, and the associated proposals for funding.

Estimated distribution of effort:
60% primary research, in collaboration with Prof. Omar and students

20% service (sponsor relations, presentations, organizing local events and external meetings, etc.)

20% new collaboration and proposal development

Required Qualifications*
The position is best suited for a computer scientist approximately 2-10 years post-PhD with expertise in programming language semantics, language design, and language implementation using typed functional programming languages such as Standard ML, OCaml, or Haskell.

U-M EEO/AA Statement
The University of Michigan is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
