Postdoctoral position in reverse and computable mathematics, Udine, ITALY

There is a call for a postdoc position (formally assegno di ricerca = research check) in Udine 
(Italy) about "Reverse mathematics and computable mathematics". The position will be for 12 
months starting in September or October 2012. The yearly amount, after all taxes, is 17577 Euros 
(about 1464 Euros per month). We'll try to help with a bit of research money for attending 
conferences, etc.

I am sending out this message in advance because the deadline for applications will be about 
10 days from the call, and there will be no online applications. Feel free to circulate this information.

I recommend the potential applicants to get in touch with me as soon as possible: I'll try to 
answer their questions and send them timely information about the application procedure. At
they can find information about the last call (that did not concern logic): you can get an idea 
of what you need to do in order to apply (for people living abroad it is possible to send the 
application by courier).

Best wishes,
