I have an opening for a postdoc, as described in the ad below. In
addition to accepting applications, I will be very happy to respond to
informal enquiries about any aspect of the position, from technical
ones to ones about life in a beautiful, "alternative" mountain town in
western North Carolina.
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral researcher position in the
Computer Science Department at Appalachian State University. The
position is part of an NSF-funded project on the categorical semantics
of advanced data types, such as nested types, GADTs, and other
higher-kinded data types. The project aims to build on recent work on
higher-kinded data types to understand the categorical settings in
which they have initial algebra semantics. One primary goal is to
classify such types according to the complexity of the categorical
settings in which they have well-defined initial algebra
semantics. Another is to understand what parametricity means,
practically speaking, for them.
The ideal applicant will have a strong background in functional
programming, type theory, and category theory, although more expertise
in one area may, together with a commitment to developing the required
competencies, compensate for less in another. The successful applicant
will also be excited about working on fundamental research questions
on the themes of categorical semantics of data types and
parametricity. Interests in applications and/or formalizing computer
science theory in, e.g., Agda, are also welcome.
The successful hire will work on the funded project with
Prof. Patricia Johann at Appalachian State University, her students,
and collaborating researchers. (Due to COVID-19, remote work may be
possible for some initial portion of the position.) The duration of
the position is initially one year, with guaranteed continuation by
mutual agreement. The position will start at a mutually agreeable
date, ideally on or around 1 July 2021. Compensation will be
competitive and commensurate with experience.
Interested persons should first contact Patricia Johann at
joha...@appstate.edu, briefly outlining their academic background and
research interests, and why they are interested in the position. A
complete application will consist of a cover letter and CV, including
contact information for three academic references. Complete
applications should be made online at
Review of applications will begin on 15 February 2021 and continue
until the position is filled.
