Design a PL for Knitting at Disney Research Pittsburgh!

My friend Jim just told me about an exciting-sounding internship opportunity for Ph.D. students in programming languages! Check it out:

Disney Research Pittsburgh seeks a PhD student with experience in Programming Languages or Compilers for a summer internship. The student will be expected to apply programming language methods to the analysis and control of knitting machines, with potential topics including:
  •   developing a semantics for machine knitting
  •   formally describing a notion of machine knittability
  •   inverse knitting
  •   knit scheduling
  •   knitting pattern optimization
  •   knitting failure analysis and robustness estimation
  •   translation from hand knitting to machine knitting
As part of the internship, the student will write up their work for submission to an appropriate top-tier venue; applicants with prior publications in such venues will be strongly favored.
Interested students should contact Jim McCann ( to arrange a further conversation. Please include or link to a description of your current research area and previous publications.
