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 

We are looking for a researcher who can work with categorical models of proofs 
and who has an interest in 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.

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.

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.
