I'm not _entirely_ sure what you are saying here.  We have interests
in AOP and interests in LLVM but they are not particularly related,
whereas your interests seem to be intertwined.

But it's late and I am suffering from a stressful trip, so maybe the
confusion is just at my end :)

Well, we certainly hope that there are interesting lines of
investigation in PyPy.  To be more specific, we probably need you to
be more specific about your interests too.

If you are asking "do we have pots of cash lying around to fund PhDs",
then I'm pretty sure the answer is "no".  PyPy's funding from the EU
was not structured in this sort of way (AIUI).
