## PhD student positions in theoretical computer science, Birmingham (U.K.)

Dear all,
We invite applications for PhD study at the University of Birmingham. We
are a group of (mostly) theoretical computer scientists who explore
fundamental concepts in computation and programming language semantics.
This often involves profound and surprising connections between different
areas of computer science and mathematics. From category theory to
?-calculus and computational effects, from topology to constructive
mathematics, from game semantics to program compilation, this is a diverse
field of research that continues to provide new insight and underlying
structure. See our webpage, with links to individual researchers, here:
http://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/research/groupings/theory/
Information about PhD applications may be found here:

If you are considering applying, please contact any of us. We will be very
happy to discuss the opportunities available.
Best regards,
The Birmingham CS theory group
Martin Escardo (topology, computation with infinite objects, constructive
mathematics, intuitionistic type theory)
Dan Ghica (game semantics, heterogeneous computing, model checking)
Achim Jung (mathematical structures in the foundations of computing:
logic, topology, order)
Paul Levy (denotational semantics, lambda-calculus with effects,
nondeterminism, category theory, game semantics)
Uday Reddy (semantics of state, separation logic)
Eike Ritter (security protocol verification)
Hayo Thielecke (abstract machines, concurrent and functional programming,
software security)
Steve Vickers (constructive mathematics and topology, category theory and
