The post is associated with the three-year EPSRC project "Efficient and Natural Proof Systems". The project is about developing an ambitious, modern semantic-motivated proof theory for representing natural proofs of minimal complexity.

We are looking for a researcher who can work with categorical models of proofs and with an interest towards geometric proof representations such as proof nets and atomic flows. The main focus of this position will be in the semantic aspects of the new proof theory, working mainly with Guy McCusker, Alessio Guglielmi and Paola Bruscoli.

The post will be available for up to 3 years,  with effect from 1st February 2013.

We are part of the Mathematical Foundations group of the Computer Science Department of the University of Bath. We study the mathematics of logical reasoning, of programs, of processes and of programming languages. In our research we use and develop category theory, game theory, model theory, proof theory, type theory and complexity theory.

The postholder will require enhanced crb clearance.

Our department has an outstanding research profile: in the most recent national Research Assessment Exercise our research output was ranked fourth out of 81 university submissions in the UK. This year our university has been recognised as third in the country in The Sunday Times University Guide.
