PhD position in software verification, Paris, FRANCE

http://www.liafa.univ-paris-diderot.fr/index_en.php

===============================
  A PhD position in LIAFA 
==================

Contact: Tayssir TOUILI  
(touili@liafa.univ-paris-diderot.fr)

A PhD position is   available in the "Verification" team in LIAFA, Paris.


*Subject: Software  verification**
**------------------------------------------*

The subject of the thesis is about concurrent programs verification. The 
PhD student is expected to investigate and develop novel techniques, 
algorithms and tools for the analysis of software.

Indeed, nowadays, software is everywhere: in telecommunication, in 
navigation, in nuclear plants, etc. The tasks that software deal with are 
becoming more and more complex and critical, in the sense that any small 
error can cause huge human and/or economical damages. Therefore, it is 
crucial to be sure that a software does not contain any error before using 
it.  Programmers need then to have rigorous formal mathematical techniques 
that allow to verify and check their programs. Unfortunately, programs 
present several complex features that make their analysis very complex: 
concurrency, synchronisation, recursion, procedure calls, pointers, 
manipulation of integer and real variables, etc. Thus, the objective of 
this thesis is to develop new techniques for software model-checking that 
can deal with all these complex features.

*How to apply:** **==========* The position is available immediately. 
Candidates must have a master in computer science. The candidate must send 
a CV, university grades, recommendation letters, and a motivation letter 
to Tayssir TOUILI (touili@liafa.univ-paris-diderot.fr)
