Announcement for two 11-15-month postdoctoral positions funded by the ANR

Project summary : LambdaComb is an interdisciplinary project financed by
the French Agence Nationale de la Recherche. Broadly, the project aims to
deepen connections between lambda calculus and logic on the one hand and
combinatorics on the other. One important motivation for the project is the
discovery over recent years of a host of surprising links between
subsystems of lambda calculus and enumeration of graphs on surfaces, or
"maps", the latter being an active subfield of combinatorics with roots in
W. T. Tutte's work in the 1960s.  More informations can be found on the
project webpage:

We seek candidates holding or soon to receive a PhD in Computer Science or
Mathematics and with expertise in one or several of the following areas:

- The application should contain a CV, a brief research statement (1-2
pages) & at least two contacts of reference persons (or reference letters
if available).

- The salary and precise length of the contract will depend on the
successful candidate's prior research experience, with a guaranteed minimum
