A post-doc position is available at LORIA, Nancy, France in logic, proof theory and semantics, supported by the ANR DynRes project „Dynamic Resources and Separation and Update Logics” held by a group of three teams of researchers of three French laboratories of computer science, the IRIT – L’Institut de Recherche en Informatique de Toulouse in Toulouse, the LORIA – Laboratoire lorrain de recherche en informatique et ses applications in Nancy and the LSV – Laboratoire Spécification et Vérification in Paris (ENS Cachan).
More information on the ANR DynRes is available at http://anr-dynres.loria.fr.
The successful candidate will be working within the TYPES team at LORIA and will have access to the resources of the team through the ANR DynRes.
The scientific goal of the project consists in investigating logics that deal with resources and dynamic properties of resources, like for example variants of separation logic.
The postdoc will be to carry out research within the project DynRes by focusing on some topics. For instance, the candidate could work on the study of the links between various resource logics using tools like translations, embeddings, etc.
But other topics of the DynRes project are open to candidates. Any questions are welcome on this matter.
Requirements are a PhD degree in Computer Science or Mathematics and a strong background in some of the following topics:
- formal logic (non-classical, sub-structural, modal, …);
- proof theory (sequents, tableaux, natural deduction …);
- logical semantics (translations, embeddings, bisimulations …);
- computability theory (decidability, complexity …).
The position is for one year with a starting date between September and December 2013. The position holder will work in the TYPES team at LORIA and will be paid by the University of Lorraine. The monthly salary will be around 2000 euros free of charge.
The deadline for application is June 15th, 2013, but an email to inform about the intention of application is welcome as soon as possible.
Applications should be sent in electronic form, including a CV, publication list, title and summary of the PhD, reports on the PhD if available, a research statement with a short description of a scientific project (1-2 pages) related to the DynRes project, and one or two recommendation letters.
They should be sent by email to either/both
