* PhD positions in Combinatorics, Random Graphs, Logic, Complexity, and
* University of Sheffield, UK
* Fully funded for 3.5 years for both UK Home and Overseas students
* Possible times to start: ASAP/Spring 2024
* Deadline: 17th September 2023
* Details:

Up to four fully funded research positions with the opportunity of
undertaking a PhD are available within the Foundation of Computation (FOX)
Group, Department of Computer Science, at the University of Sheffield:

The FOX research group at Sheffield is growing rapidly. These posts provide
excellent opportunities for graduate students (UK and overseas) to obtain a
PhD in any active research area of the group (see below the research
interests of potential supervisors).

The posts are fully funded for three and half years. Note that
exceptionally strong overseas candidates will be considered as well, with
full cover of tuition fees.

Dr. Charles Grellois is mainly interested in the verification of functional
programs, would they be deterministic or probabilistic. He has worked on
higher-order model-checking in the deterministic case, and on higher-order
termination analysis in the probabilistic case. These approaches use
techniques from linear logic and its models, category theory,
(intersection) type theory, tree automata theory, probabilistic semantics,
realizability… Several interesting questions are still open so that  several
different PhD projects could be discussed on these topics; but he is also
open to other research topics in this area, to be discussed with the
prospective student.

Dr. Maksim Zhukovskii is interested in combinatorics, probability, logic,
computational and descriptive complexity. Currently Maksim is working on
variety of topics including extremal combinatorics (Turan-type questions,
saturation, colourings, etc), random graphs (thresholds, limiting
distributions, logical limit laws, almost sure theories), average-case
complexity (canonical labelling of random graphs, search problems in random
graphs, reconstruction problems), enumerative combinatorics (random regular
graphs, degree sequences), algebraic combinatorics (Cayley graphs,
isomorphism problem for abelian groups, matroids), random walks, first
order logic and expressive power of its fragments, second order logic and
modal logic. See for the
list of publications.

Dr. Jonni Virtema is keen to supervise students in any area of his current
research, which relate to the interplay of logic and complexity theory.
Current topics include logics and complexity theory related to numerical
data, and temporal logics designed to express so-called hyperproperties,
which are important in information flow and security. A further emerging
topic is to study foundations of neural networks using the machinery of
logics and complexity theory related to numerical data. See
for further details.

Dr. Harsh Beohar is broadly interested in comparative concurrency semantics
and in the interplay of category theory, logic, and semantics. Current
topics include expressive modal logics, behavioural equivalence games,
synthesising distinguishing/characteristic formulae all at the level of
coalgebras. See for an uptodate list of
