This is a gentle reminder that the dead-line for the PhD position is
today (June 1st).
Applications will be considered until the position is filled, though.
Candidates interested in a PhD in formal and algebraic methods for
concurrent, reversible computation in Augusta University (Georgia, USA),
starting in January 2024 are invited to apply by June 1st, 2023. A
post-doctoral position will open shortly after, but interested
candidates should feel encouraged to reach out to
<[log in to unmask]> informally.
In addition to accepting applications, I will be very happy to respond
to informal inquiries about any aspect of the position, from technical
ones to ones about life in the US "Garden City".
Thanks for forwarding this offer or the link
potentially interested candidates.
Expanded version (PhD position)
The Concurrency In Reversible Computations (<https://github.com/CinRC>)
project is actively seeking a PhD student to fund starting Spring 2024.
The funding for an admitted PhD student includes waiver of most tuition
(only $25--$640 / semester is due by the student), a stipend ($29K /
year), health benefits for the individual, (international) conference
travel and possibly equipment (laptop). Funding is currently available
for the first three years of the appointment through a new NSF funded
The main goals of this project are to improve existing process calculi
formalizing reversible computations. In the past, reversible calculi
have shed a new light on the correctness and adequation of CCS,
π-calculus and other formalisms for concurrent computation, but they
still miss crucial features. Contextual equivalences, observable
behaviors, set of operators and infinite behavior, to name a few, are
still in the flux and in need of formal definitions that adequately
models interesting systems. The original project encompasses many
different dimensions, and will be tailored based on mutual interests,
capacities, and recent progresses.
The successful applicant will be advised by Clément Aubert, and benefit
from an international network of collaborators, as well as from a local,
lively, group of PhD students (including but not limited to students
working on related formal methods). In addition, they will have the
opportunity to help mentoring undergraduate research assistants if they
wish to do so.
Interested students should meet the following:
- Be interested in the overall project as stated above. A complete
project description or selected publications are available upon request.
- Have or are about to complete a Bachelor or (preferably) a Master
of Science in Computer Science, Mathematics, or a related field
(Computer Engineering, etc.).
The successful applicant will additionally need to be admitted to the
PhD program by the school's review committee and the Graduate School,
but will receive help in completing their application, which should only
be a formality.
Students from all origins are welcome, and the University has support
for issuing documents for student visa for the successful applicant and
If you are interested in being considered for this opportunity please
begin by contacting Clément Aubert (<[log in to unmask]>) with
the following information:
- A brief introduction of yourself and if you have conducted any
Applications will be reviewed starting June, 1st, 2023
Interviews will be conducted in June 2023
Successful applicant will be selected in July 2023
Formal application to the PhD program will be due by September, 1st 2023
Expanded version (Post-doctoral position)
This NSF-funded project also includes funding for a post-doctoral
researcher position. The duration of the position is initially one year,
with guaranteed continuation by mutual agreement. The position will
start at a mutually agreeable date, but probably not before July 2024.
However, interested persons should feel encouraged to share their
graduation plan or professional trajectory if they believe they can
align particularly well with this project, in which case the starting
date may be significantly shifted.
