## PhD funding opportunities in theoretical computer science, Birmingham (U.K.)

* Imminent funding deadline - please contact us immediately if you are
interested. *
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
lambda-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:

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
