Research Officer - Computer Science (Fixed Term 3 Yrs)
Salary: Starting from £30,424, rising to £36,298
Closing Date: Wednesday 23 January 2013
Interview Date: To be confirmed
The post is associated with the three-year EPSRC
project "Efficient and Natural Proof Systems".
The project is about developing an ambitious,
modern semantic-motivated proof theory for
representing natural proofs of minimal complexity.
We are looking for a researcher who can work with
categorical models of proofs and who has an
interest in geometric proof representations such
as proof nets and atomic flows. The main focus of
this position will be in the semantic aspects of
the new proof theory, working mainly with Guy
McCusker, Alessio Guglielmi and Paola Bruscoli.
The post will be available for up to 3
years, with effect from 1st February 2013.

We are part of the Mathematical Foundations group
of the Computer Science Department of the
University of Bath. We study the mathematics of
logical reasoning, of programs, of processes and
of programming languages. In our research we use
and develop category theory, game theory, model
theory, proof theory, type theory and complexity
Our department has an outstanding research
profile: in the most recent national Research
Assessment Exercise our research output was
ranked fourth out of 81 university submissions in
the UK. This year our university has been
recognised as third in the country in The Sunday
Times University Guide.
