Dear all,

We would like to invite applications for both:
    - an up to 3 years fully-funded postdoctoral position
    - a fully-funded PhD position

within the School of Computer Science at the University of Birmingham (see below for details on how to apply).

The postdoctoral researcher and PhD students will contribute to an EPSRC-funded project aiming at designing and formally verifying distributed systems, in particular Byzantine fault-tolerant distributed systems as used for example in blockchain technology.

The start date is flexible, ideally around October 2022.

The environment:

The School of Computer Science has large and thriving Security and Theory research groups. Among our research interests related to this project are for example:
   - Blockchain Technology
   - Security & Privacy
   - Formal verification
   - Proof assistants
   - Model checking

Both groups are very active, organising regular seminars, informal meetings, and actively participating in many events such as the Midlands Graduate School or the Cyber Security PhD Winter School. For more information see and
