Research Fellow position, University of Birmingham, UK

We (Colin Rowat - economics - and Manfred Kerber - computer science) are looking for an RA 
(research assistant) with strong background in theorem proving, logic, mathematical knowledge 
representation, and/or economics for a project to apply automated theorem proving techniques to 
economics. 

In the project we want to bridge between computer science and economics, reach out to the two 
communities and explore in a wide range of ways (by applying Isabelle, Theorema, sTeX, Leo inter 
alia) how formal and semi-formal methods can be applied to particular problems in the field of 
economics.

The job ad can be found at: http://tinyurl.com/5tnv4u5 (closing date 30 November 2011).

The project starts early 2012 (1 January the earliest) and runs for 30-36 months.

The EPSRC research grant details are at: 
http://gow.epsrc.ac.uk/NGBOViewGrant.aspx?GrantRef=EP/J007498/1

Three papers that exemplify the work we are going to automate and extend:
