Well, yes. But an LLVM backend in PyPy lingo is different from an LLVM 
backend in LLVM lingo :-). The latter would be a backend to LLVM that 
targets a certain CPU architecture. But it is really the other way 
round: we have a backend that produces _LLVM_ code out of our own IL.

No clue about the Ph.D., sorry.
