I'm the author and maintainer of ftnchek, a venerable static analysis program for finding bugs in Fortran code. In its heyday, ftnchek was quite popular with Fortran programmers. However, for some time now ftnchek has been kind of moribund due to its only accepting Fortran 77 syntax with some Fortran 90 extensions.
This situation is about to change. I have been awarded a grant that can support a graduate research assistant for one calendar year, including a stipend and 1/3 of tuition. The project will involve rebuilding ftnchek to accept the full current Fortran standard syntax.
If you are or know of a graduating senior who is planning to begin a master's degree program in computer science this September, with a good background and interest in compilers, please contact me for details on the assistantship and how to apply to Fordham's M.S. program in computer science.
