[PhD position]Studentship in logic and systems verification at UCL

发布时间:2019-05-13 来源:本站原创 作者:本站编辑   浏览次数:

We are looking to hire an exceptionally able and highly-motivated PhD student in the area of logic and verification to work in UCL's PPLV group. We are particularly keen to find someone who is interested in systems modelling and verification and their underlying logical theory: 

- Logic

767彩票大全下载- Verification

- Systems modelling.  
The studentship is aligned with the IRIS project (), --- which is focussed on understanding and reasoning about the compositional structure of systems models and the supporting idea of an interface --- and will be supervised by Professor David Pym () and Dr. James Brotherston (). 


In more detail, area of the studentship is in logic and its application to program and systems verification, with a particular interest in the development and application of logical tools based on bunched logic, separation logic, and concurrent separation logic (and related ideas) and their use to reason about the correctness of interfaces between programs, systems, and organizations. The project may range from theoretical work 
in logic (semantics and proof theory) through the theory of system modelling tools to the design and implementation of modelling and verification tools. 

The PPLV group conducts world-leading research in logical and algebraic methods and their applications to program and systems modelling and verification. The Interface Reasoning for Interacting Systems (IRIS) project, led by Prof. David Pym, uses logical and algebraic methods to understand the compositional structure of systems and their communications, seeking to develop analyses at all scales, from code through distributed systems to organizational structure, generically and uniformly. 

The IRIS project, funded as a UK EPSRC Programme Grant, is a collaboration involving James Brotherston, Byron Cook, George Danezis, Peter O’Hearn, and David Pym at UCL, Alastair Donaldson at Imperial College, Will Venters at LSE, and Edmund Robinson at QMUL. Industry partners include Amazon AWS, BT, Facebook, HP Labs, GridPP, and Methods Group. 

Candidates should normally have or be about to complete a Master's level qualification in mathematics or computer science, with a strong component in logic or theoretical computer science. 

The student is available with an earliest start-date of October 2018. Candidates should be UK or EU nationals. 

Interested candidates may contact David Pym (d.pym@ucl.ac.uk) or James Brotherston (j.brotherston@ucl.ac.uk) for more information.
