Research Fellow in Proof Theory - School of Computer Science, University of Birmingham, UK. The School of Computer Science at the University of Birmingham is seeking to appoint up to 2 Research Fellows (postdocs) in Proof Theory, for a duration of 2 years (with possibility of extension). The theory group at the University of Birmingham is one of the leading groups in logical foundations of computer science, with expertise not only in Proof Theory but also related areas such as Type Theory, Category Theory and Mathematical Logic: <https://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/research/groupings/theory/> These positions are funded by a UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship "StrIP: Structure vs Invariants in Proofs", led by Dr Anupam Das. The project aims to develop the theory of 'cyclic proofs' and their connections to automata theory. The principal responsibility of the fellow(s) will be to conduct research, both collaboratively with Dr Das and other researchers at Birmingham, and independently. The fellow(s) will also be supported in career development and encouraged to pursue independent opportunities. Qualifications and expertise You will have (or be close to completing) a PhD in Logic (computer science, mathematics or philosophy), or equivalent qualifications. You will have an excellent research record, with expertise in some of the following areas: * Proof theory (in particular, deep inference or cyclic proofs). * Automata theory (in particular, infinite word and tree automata). * Mathematical logic (in particular, fragments of arithmetic or set theory). Application Informal inquiries prior to application are encouraged and should be directed to Dr Anupam Das <a.das@bham.ac.uk>. You may find further details on the positions and instructions for applying here: <https://www.jobs.ac.uk/job/CAD990/research-fellow-in-proof-theory> Practical information Starting salary range: £30,942 - £40,322 (potentially progressing to £42,792). Application deadline: 24 June 2020. Starting date: As soon as possible, but ideally no later than October 2020. Duration: 2 years (with possibility of extension) [For admin and other information see: http://www.mta.ca/~cat-dist/ ]
