Three Research Assistant/Research Associate positions are available in the foundations of distributed computation, funded by EPSRC grants EP/C510712 (Sewell, Gibbens, Norrish) and GR/T11715 (Sewell, Pitts).
The work spans several areas:
It builds on previous work on the experimental Acute programming language, on the NetSem semantics of real-world network protocols, and on the concerns of the POPLmark challenge problem in semantic mechanisation. Details of all these can be found at http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/users/pes20/index.html#PAPERS.
For the two-year positions you should have (or expect soon to obtain) a PhD in Computer Science, with a strong background in one or more of the following:
The one-year appointment may be either at the postdoctoral level (Research Associate) as above, or at a post-graduate level (Research Assistant). For the latter you should have a good first-class degree in Computer Science. For a suitably experienced candidate it may be possible to upgrade to a Senior Research Associate appointment.
Enquiries about the project should be addressed to Dr Peter Sewell, http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/users/pes20/.
