Research Fellow in Proof Theory - University of Birmingham, UK.

The School of Computer Science at the University of Birmingham is 
seeking to appoint a Research Fellow (postdoc) in Proof Theory, to be 
employed until (at least) the end of April 2024. 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:


This position is 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, programming languages, and structural proof theory. The 
principal responsibility of the fellow will be to conduct research, both 
collaboratively with Dr Das and other researchers at Birmingham, and 
independently. The fellow 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, cyclic proofs, and/or 
computational interpretations).
* Automata theory (in particular, infinite word and tree automata).
* Mathematical logic (in particular, fragments of arithmetic or set 


Informal inquiries prior to application are encouraged and should be 
directed to Dr Anupam Das <a.das at bham.ac.uk>. You may find further
