We are looking for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to work on an EPSRC-funded project Recursion, Guarded Recursion and Computational Effects.
We shall be investigating fine-grained typed calculi and operational, denotational and categorical semantics for languages that combine either guarded or general recursion and type recursion with a range of computational effects. This will build on existing work such as call-by-push-value and Nakano's guarded recursion calculus.
The successful candidate will have a PhD in programming language semantics or a related discipline, and an ability to conduct collaborative mathematical research. Knowledge of operational and denotational semantics, category theory, type theory and related subjects are all desirable.
You will work with Paul Levy (principal investigator) and Neelakantan Krishnaswami (co-investigator) as part of the Theoretical Computer Science group at the University of Birmingham.
The position lasts from 1 October 2016 until 30 September 2019.

Don't hesitate to contact us (particularly Paul Levy) informally to discuss this position.
The closing date is soon: 22 May 2016.
