The Chair for Foundations of Software Reliability of the Technical University of Munich (TUM), led by Javier Esparza, is inviting applications for a doctoral and a postdoctoral research scholar.
The positions are funded by the ERC Advanced Grant "Parameterized Verification and Synthesis". We are looking for excellent junior researchers in any of the following areas: algorithmic analysis of systems (model checking, static analysis); logical and automata-theoretical approaches to formal verification and automatic synthesis; and concurrency theory, in particular the theory of Petri nets and Vector Addition Systems. For one of the positions we are especially interested in candidates with experience in tool building.
The positions are funded for 2 years with the option of an extension for another two. Applicants must have completed a degree in computer science, mathematics, of electrical engineering, and must have demonstrated strong interest in research. In addition to pursuing a strong research program, the scholars are expected to contribute to mentoring students.
TUM provides excellent working conditions in a lively scientific community. The Chair for Foundations of Software Reliability maintains an open, international, and diverse work environment. Current members come from six different countries in three continents. There is generous travel support available for all chair members. Our working language is English.
For your application send your CV and 3 references to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. For the postdoctoral position add a summary of your current reseach ideas. Please contact Javier Esparza at email@example.com with any questions.
The positions are available from September 1, 2018, but a later start is possible. Reviewing of applications will commence on 15 June, 2018 and applicants are encouraged to apply by this deadline. However, applications will be accepted until the positions are filled.
