Subject: research position at Nokia Research Center Cambridge US
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.lang.haskell.general
Date: Thursday 22nd February 2007 18:33:49 UTC (over 10 years ago)
Position available: Senior Research Engineer
We seek an exceptional, highly motivated individual who is interested in
a unique opportunity to collaborate with a world-class academic research
community. This position is for the Armo project at NRC Cambridge
using Bluespec
hardware description language (http://www.bluespec.com/) to radically
improve Nokia's ability to develop advanced SOCs and corresponding
software for future mobile phones and mobile computers.  We are
investigating co-development of hardware and software components for
such devices. Success in the project will lead to both academic
publication as well as a significant positive impact on Nokia products
and engineering.
The ideal candidate will have an advanced degree and several years of
industrial research experience. In addition to being expert in one or
more technical areas, a successful candidate must be able to quickly
master new fields of study and new technology. Candidates should be
strong individual contributors with broad Computer Science engineering
background and skills. They must be self-directed and require a minimum
amount of supervision. As an individual contributor the candidate must
be able and willing to work independently as well as participate as a
member of other projects.
In addition, candidates must have strong communication skills. They must
be able to lead technology transfer activities, write research papers
and proposals, participate in industrial standards activities (this may
include international travel), and manage internal and external business

Needed Competencies and Skills
Expertise in computer architecture, parallel programming is required.
Expertise in hardware definition languages such as Verilog, VHDL, and
Bluespec is desired. Expertise in several programming languages and
environments such as Haskell, Lisp, Java, C, C++, Symbian, Unix or Linux
is needed. In depth understanding of operating systems, distributed
systems and network protocols is desired.

Department/Team Description
Nokia Research Center Cambridge is a one year old group of 16
researchers located in Cambridge, Massachusetts. NRCC's charter is to
renew Nokia via open innovation, in particular via joint research
projects with MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence
Laboratory. We are a systems research center, investigating all aspects
of future mobile phones and services. Our goal is to develop new
technologies, applications, and services, and to work with the rest of
Nokia to make these a reality.
