Position Description:

The Department of Computer Science is seeking applications for a post-doctoral scholar to join the Computational Logic Center (CLC) within the department of computer science. The CLC performs research across programming languages, formal verification, and automated reasoning, and includes J. Garrett Morris, Cesare Tinelli, Katherine Kosaian, as well as several research scientists, post-doctoral scholars, and graduate student researchers. The scholar will have the opportunity to collaborate with other CLC members, as well as participating in joint seminars and other activities. We study extensibility and modularity in high-level typed functional programming languages, particularly Haskell. The post-doctoral scholar will contribute to an NSF-funded project exploring a new semantic foundation for type classes and type families in Haskell. Their work will include formalizing the new approach in Agda, implementing it in GHC, and evaluating that implementation.

To apply, or with questions about the position, please email Garrett Morris with your CV (including a list of publications), a letter of interest explaining your suitability for the role, and the names and contact information of at least two references.

Education Requirement:

A PhD in computer science or a closely related field, with a strong background in programming languages and logic, is required.

Required Qualifications:• Knowledge of and experience with Haskell programming, including the use of type classes and type families
• Experience with mechanized theorem proving in Agda
• Good English writing and speaking skills
• Ability to work in a collaborative environment
• A strong commitment to research excellence
