The Compositional Systems and Methods group at the Tallinn University of 
Technology, Estonia (https://compose.ioc.ee) is seeking highly qualified 
PhD candidates.

The ideal student should have a solid grounding in category theory, and in 
at least one of the following areas: programming languages, concurrency 
theory, quantum computing, database and information systems, or machine 

The group’s lingua franca is category theory and our research concerns 
mathematical foundations, as well as various applications in computer 
science and related disciplines. We are working on relational algebra and 
functorial semantics, open games, process languages for smart contracts, 
string diagrams, compositional descriptions of models of computation and 
concurrency, lenses and optics in functional programming, type theory, and 
several other topics.

The group is led by Pawel Sobocinski, has two postdoctoral researchers, 
Edward Morehouse and Fosco Loregian, and four PhD students: Elena Di 
Lavore, Nathan Haydon, Chad Nester and Mario Román. One additional 
postdoctoral researcher will be recruited in the autumn of 2020. Our 
research is supported by the ESF funded Estonian IT Academy research 

The group’s ethos emphasises openness, and inter-group collaboration is 
highly encouraged. We maintain an active member-led seminar series and hold 
regular group meetings, research retreats in the Estonian countryside, and 
various cross-cutting research activities.

The successful students will be awarded a generous stipend and be provided 
with computing equipment and resources for travelling to conferences, 
summer schools, and other events relevant to their projects.

Applicants should hold a Masters degree in Computer Science, Mathematics or 
a closely related field. To apply, send a CV and a motivation letter 
outlining your research interests to Pawel Sobocinski 

STARTING DATE: November 2020 or as per agreement

Fosco Loregian
