In addition to our previous announcement of a minimum of 15 PhD Funded 
positions (http://cdt.cs.manchester.ac.uk/), we are pleased to announce 
further PhD funding available:
- One PhD studentship on Managed Runtime Environments for Many-core 
Architectures (EU citizen required).
- Up to 5 EPS PhD studentships (no nationality restriction) covering the 
interest of the Advanced Processor Technologies Group. 

The Advanced Processor Technologies (APT) group has a wide range of 
activities related to Computer Architecture and Systems research. APT 
continues to influence industry with commercialisation examples such as 
the ICL Goldrush Database server, Amulet processors (Low-power 
architectures) bought by ARM Ltd., Transitive Corporation 
(Virtualization and Binary Translation) bought by IBM and Silistix Ltd 

The School of Computer Science was ranked first in England as measured 
by research strength in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise. It is 
also ranked 4th in Europe in the most recent ranking of world 
universities in Computer Science by the Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
The University has a long and distinguished record in the fields of 
Computer Architecture, Computer Systems and Parallel Computing. A number 
of groundbreaking developments have taken place in Manchester including 
the world’s first stored program computer, the invention of virtual 
memory, the compiler-compiler and the building of the first practical 
dataflow computer.

If you are interested in Virtualization technologies or Just-in-Time 
compilation, there is one funded position starting between April & July 
2011. Send an email, including CV, to mikel.lujan at machester.ac.uk with 
subject "APT MRE PhD [your surname]" to express your interest. The
