PhD student positions in theoretical computer science, Birmingham (U.K.)


Dear all,

We invite applications for PhD study at the University of Birmingham. We 
are a group of (mostly) theoretical computer scientists who explore 
fundamental concepts in computation and programming language semantics. 
This often involves profound and surprising connections between different 
areas of computer science and mathematics. From category theory to 
?-calculus and computational effects, from topology to constructive 
mathematics, from game semantics to program compilation, this is a diverse 
field of research that continues to provide new insight and underlying 
structure. See our webpage, with links to individual researchers, here:

http://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/research/groupings/theory/

Information about PhD applications may be found here:

http://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/admissions/postgraduate-research/

If you are considering applying, please contact any of us. We will be very 
happy to discuss the opportunities available.

Best regards,

The Birmingham CS theory group

mathematics, intuitionistic type theory)

logic, topology, order)
