Dear friends,

We are hiring for several faculty position at the University of 
Cambridge. One of our target areas is logical foundations and formal 
methods. This is intended to be construed very broadly, to cover almost 
everyone working in programming languages, logic, semantics, proof 
assistants, and verification -- if you think your research area might be 
in scope, it almost certainly is!

If you have any questions, please do feel free to contact me 
<nk480 at cl.cam.ac.uk> or the committee chair, Prof. Marcelo Fiore 
<marcelo.fiore at cl.cam.ac.uk>.



The Department of Computer Science and Technology is seeking to recruit 
a new faculty member at the Assistant or Associate Professor level who 
can contribute to research and teaching in the area of Logical 
Foundations and Formal Methods.

The Computer Science department in Cambridge has a long history of 
research in logical foundations and formal methods, from groundbreaking 
work on higher-order logic and the proof assistant Isabelle, through to 
a wide range of important semantic frameworks, such as bigraphs, event 
structures, and nominal sets. Today logical foundations and formal 
methods is a thriving area of activity, which is explored with a wide 
variety of mathematical and logical tools, including category theory, 
domain theory, finite model theory, linear logic, operational semantics, 
proof assistants, and type theory.

We seek to appoint a new member of faculty to complement and enhance our 
research in this area. The position is open to researchers working in 
the area of formal methods and logical foundations of computer science, 
broadly conceived. While no list of topics could be exhaustive, 
potential candidates might work in the areas of automata theory, 
automated deduction, categorical syntax and semantics, descriptive 
complexity, homotopy type theory, modal or temporal logic, rewriting, or 
type theory, as could researchers applying formal or logical tools in 
concurrency theory, databases, networks, programming languages, quantum 
computing and other emerging models of computation, or verification.

The ideal candidate for this position will have a strong international 
track record of publication and impact commensurate with their research 
area and experience. They will have the ability, or potential, to secure 
research funding to support their research vision and build a 
world-class team of researchers. We welcome applications from 
researchers with interdisciplinary interests who will collaborate with 
people across different subdisciplines in Computer Science and 
Technology and with other academic disciplines. Collaborations outside 
academia are also highly-valued, including with industry and 
third-sector organizations.

The University actively supports equality, diversity and inclusion and 
encourages applications from all sections of society.
