I am looking for a PhD student in mathematics. Full tuition & stipend will be provided for a period of three years, which is also the official length of the programme. The topic of research is somewhat flexible and varies from constructive models of homotopy type theory to development of a programming language for a proof assistant based on dependent type theory, see the short summary of the Effmath project for a more detailed description.
The candidate should have as many of the following desiderata as possible, and at the very least a master’s degree (or an equivalent one):
- a master’s degree in mathematics, with good knowledge of computer science
- a master’s degree in computer science, with good knowledge of mathematics
- experience with functional programming
- experience with proof assistants
- familiarity with homotopy type theory
The student will officially enrol in October 2015 at the University of Ljubljana. No knowledge of Slovene is required. However, it is possible, and even desirable, to start with the actual work (and stipend) earlier, as soon as in the spring of 2015. The candidates should contact me by email as soon as possible. Please include a short CV and a statement of interest.
Update 2015-03-28: the position has been taken.
