Dear all,
We invite applications for PhD study at the University of Birmingham.  
We are a group of (mostly) theoretical computer scientists who explore  
fundamental concepts in computation and programming language  
semantics. This often involves profound and surprising connections  
between different areas of computer science and mathematics. From  
category theory to ?-calculus and computational effects, from topology  
to constructive mathematics, from game semantics to program  
compilation, this is a diverse field of research that continues to  
provide new insight and underlying structure. See our webpage, with  
links to individual researchers, here:

If you are considering applying, please contact any of us. We will be  
very happy to discuss the opportunities available.
Best regards,
The Birmingham CS theory group
