http://www2.tcs.ifi.lmu.de/~grabow/papers/grabowskietal2011_securecodingguidelines.pdf

We are looking for a

Postdoctoral researcher in programming language theory for up to nine months

to work within a DFG-sponsored project. Concretely, an existing type-based analysis for the 
enforcement of a secure coding guideline (published at
http://www2.tcs.ifi.lmu.de/~grabow/papers/grabowskietal2011_securecodingguidelines.pdf)
should be extended to arbitrary guidelines specified by Buchi automata.

The successful candidate should have a solid background in program analysis ideally but not 
necessarily with type systems.

Given the short duration of the position we especially encourage applicants who can take a leave 
of absence from an existing position. In particular, applications from senior researchers, e.g. 
visiting scientists, are also welcome.

Duration: up to nine months

Start date: as soon as possible but not later than October 2012.

Remuneration: German scale 13 TV-L (38k-54k EUR p.a. according to age, experience, family status)

Principal investigator: Martin Hofmann

Location: The project will be carried out at the Institute for Informatics of Ludwig-Maximilians-
Universitt Munich, Germany. LMU is an equal opportunities employer.

Applications should be sent by E-Mail to Sigrid Roden roden@tcs.ifi.lmu.de as a single PDF file 
containing in particular CV and the names of two potential referees. There is no deadline. 
Applications will be assessed on an on-going basis until the position is filled.

Questions about the position can be directed to the investigator mhofmann@tcs.ifi.lmu.de.
