INRIA RMoD is looking for a full-time young engineer for helping with developing our research infrastructure. Young engineer means someone who finished with a degree (Master or Engineer) not longer than 2 years ago.
The engineer position is focussed on virtual machine related work. As researchers, we need a system to explore new ideas with. The job of the engineer is to help us by improving the infrastructure we use for our daily work.
What this of course means is that it's kind of a cool job: work in a research lab, but no paper writing, no teaching, no administration. In addition:
Lille is an active city but not expensive (lot of students...), centrally located with good connections by train to everywhere (including CDG and Brussels airports).
The idea of the job is to strengthen RMoD with regard to virtual machine development and improve our research infrastructure. In research we are often faced with doing experiments that need VM changes. We want to be able to make these changes as easy as possible so researchers can focus on trying out new ideas.
In particular we are working on an easy to understand and modify research virtual machine that is implemented in Smalltalk. The goal here is not a fast production VM but instead infrastructure that is easy to learn and extend for research experiments.
The job will include working on the research VM as well as helping with Pharo related VM level development:
Therefore we are looking for a candidate with some prior experience with Smalltalk (Pharo/Squeak) and possibly some background in implementation of dynamic languages.
