Postdoctoral position in logic, proof theory and semantics, Nancy , FRANCE


-----------------------------------------------------
                             A Post-Doc position
                    within the ANR project "DynRes"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A post-doc position is available at LORIA, Nancy, France in logic, proof
theory and semantics, supported by the ANR DynRes project

  "Dynamic Resources and Separation and Update Logics"

held by a group of three teams of researchers of three French laboratories
of computer science, the IRIT in Toulouse, the LORIA in Nancy and the LSV
in Paris (ENS Cachan).
More information on the ANR DynRes is available at



The successful candidate will be working within the TYPES team at LORIA and
will have access to the resources of the team through the ANR DynRes.

RESEARCH AREA

The scientific goal of the project consists in investigating logics that deal
with resources and dynamic properties of resources, like for example
variants of separation logic.

The postdoc will be to carry out research within the project DynRes by focusing
on some topics. For instance, the candidate could work on the study of the 
links
between various resource logics using tools like translations, embeddings, etc.
But other topics of the DynRes project are open to candidates.
Any questions are welcome on this matter.

background in some of the following topics:
- formal logic (non-classical, sub-structural, modal, ...)
- proof theory (sequents, tableaux, natural deduction ...)
- logical semantics (translations, embeddings, bisimulations ...)
- computability theory (decidability, complexity ...)

VENUE/SALARY

The position is for one year with a starting date between September and 
December
2013. The position holder will work in the TYPES team at LORIA and will be paid
by the University of Lorraine. The monthly salary will be around 2000 euros
