The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Southern Denmark, Odense, invites applications for postdoctoral research fellowships in programming languages. The positions can have a duration of up to 4 years. The hired candidates will be part of the section of Artificial Intelligence, Cybersecurity, and Programming Languages (ACP,, an ambitious group that fosters collaboration, research excellence, and quality education.

The proposed starting time is Autumn 2024, with room for flexibility.

This position is tied to the ERC Consolidator Project “Choreographies for Distributed Systems: Reasoning, Expressivity, and Development (CHORDS)”. The project aims at introducing new language abstractions, formal models, and software tools for radically changing how we can reason about and develop realistic distributed systems. To this end, the project will establish a collaborative team that will investigate novel theoretical foundations and a formally-verified toolchain for the new paradigm of choreographic programming. The successful candidate will work with the project’s principal investigator (Prof. Fabrizio Montesi), who is a pioneer of the paradigm, and join one of the most prominent international research groups in the topic (the ACP section).

The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science is an inclusive and international working environment with state-of-the-art facilities and strong traditions for collaboration across sections, departments and faculties, and with other educational institutions, municipalities, and industries. The degrees offered by the department include BSc, MSc, and PhD degrees in computer science, a BSc in artificial intelligence, and an MSc degree in data science.

Candidate Profile

* Theory of programming languages.
* Compilers.
* Concurrent and distributed systems.
* Logical methods in computer science.
* Interactive theorem provers.
