PhD studentship: Logic and Computation group, U. Liverpool, UK

   PhD Position: 3 years, starting October/November 2009
      Logic and Computation Group, Department of Computer Science
             University of Liverpool, United Kingdom

          Closing date for applications: 6th July 2009

The "Verifying Interoperability Requirements in Pervasive Systems"
research project [ ] is an EPSRC-funded
collaboration between the universities of Birmingham, Glasgow and
Liverpool. As part of this project we are supporting a three year PhD
studentship to tackle relevant aspects in logic and formal verification.

The PhD project is intended to start in October/November 2009 and will
include full payment of fees at EU rate and a maintenance grant 13,290
per annum. Applicants must be EU citizens and should have, or expect to
obtain, either a degree at grade 2(i) or above, or an MSc, in Computer
Science or Mathematics. Experience with research in logic, formal
verification or formal methods in general would be an advantage.

The project will involve one or more of: formal specification; automata;
non-classical logics; model-checking; infinite-state systems; executable
specifications; deductive verification; organisational/context models;
security; autonomous systems; or fault tolerance. The particular project
undertaken depends on the background of the student.

You will study under the supervision of Michael Fisher in the Department
of Computer Science [ ], and will work
within the Logic and Computation group, which has an international
reputation for research in the areas of formal logics, verification, and
execution [ ].

Applications for this studentship should be made, by the closing date,
