at the University of Wisconsin.    We currently have several on-going projects in the 
areas of parallel database systems, advanced storage technologies for database 
systems, energy-aware database systems, and the design and implementation of 
database systems for multicore CPUs.

experience doing so, please apply by sending a copy of your resume to Jenna
