Postdoctoral Researcher

The Automated Formal Verification Group is advertising a post for a Grade 7 Research Assistant to work on the automated verification of concurrent programs that make use of shared memory under the direction of Daniel Kroening and Jol Ouaknine in the Oxford University Computing Laboratory.

Applicants should have (or shortly expect to receive) a PhD in Computer Science or a closely related field. The primary selection criteria are strong programming and systems skills, some experience of tool construction, and basic knowledge of program analysis. A background in theoretical computer science or mathematics is desirable. Candidates with prior experience with programming for the x86 memory model are especially encouraged to contact us, although this is by no means a necessary requirement.

The work will take place within the Verification group in the Oxford University Computing La bo ratory, which comprises, in addition to the two investigators, world-leading experts in software verification and model checking such as Marta Kwiatkowska, Tom Melham, Luke Ong, and Bill Roscoe. The posts will have a salary on the University grade 7 scale (currently 28,839 to 35,469 pa). The official ad for the post and instructions for applying can be found here:
