MRes Studentship on
              Algebraic modelling of test data

Swansea University invites applications for an industrial funded
studentship for studying a Master of Research in Logic and Computation
at the department of Computer Science, Swansea, see

The successful candidate will be awarded the home fee and a 6,000 per
annum bursary, to commence in September 2010. [Oversea students will
have to cover the difference to the home fees themselves.]

The studentship is dedicated to an industrial related research project
under the supervision of Dr Roggenbach
( in the Processes and Data Group

The objectives of this project are

- to provide a model of test data in the algebraic specification
language CASL and

- to utilise this model for decision table based testing.

Besides data modelling in CASL, the project will involve automatic and
interactive theorem proving.

Required qualification is a Bachelor / Master (or equivalent) in ComputerScience or Mathematics.
