lines of C++/MPI code, coordinating several programmers working into a cvs
repository, and research collaboration for the design of new parallel Data
Warehousing and OLAP methods. This project is part of an international
collaboration between Griffith University, Dalhousie University in Canada
and Purdue University in USA on parallel Data Warehousing and OLAP for
Beowulf cluster type parallel machines. A 128 processor cluster at
Griffith is currently being installed for this project. For more details

PhD scholarship: Parallel Computing for Bioinformatics (3 years)
Applications are invited for a full-time PhD scholarship in the area of
Parallel Computing for Bioinformatics. The scholarship is worth AU$16k per
annum for three years. This PhD scholarship is co-funded between Griffith
University (www.griffith.edu.au) and the Queensland Parallel
Supercomputing Foundation (QPSF, www.qpsf.edu.au/) for research into
parallel algorithms and parallel software for Bioinformatics. Research
will involve work on parallel code for multiple sequence alignments
(Clustal XP, http://clustalxp.cgmlab.org) and other Bioinformatics
applications. The research is of an interdisciplinary nature and will be
done within an international team from Australia, Canada, USA, and Europe
(see http://www.cit.gu.edu.au/hpcvis/ and http://www.cgmlab.org). The
successfull applicant will have a solid background in Computer Science and
an interest in research that spans the development of larger parallel
software packages, algorithmic research, and interaction with researchers
in the Biosciences. Applicants should have a good academic record and be
willing to work in a multidisciplinary field.
Application Process: Send CV, transcripts, two letters of reference, and
samples of research and development work to Professor Frank Dehne,
