The IT University of Copenhagen invites applications for several Postdoctoral fellow positions on trustworthy electronic election technology.  The positions are part of the DemTech project, a larger effort to prove that it is possible to modernize the democratic process without losing the trust of the voters.  We plan to use epistemic logical framework technology and cryptographic methods, such as full homomorphic encryption.  The research will be conducted under the supervision of Profs. Joseph Kiniry and Carsten Schürmann.   A successful applicant will be hired initially for one year with the option to renew.  The start date is flexible, but the position cannot be filled before 1 July, 2011. Candidates are also encouraged to explore research ideas beyond the project description. The positions provide significant opportunities for professional development.

Postdoctoral candidates should have a Ph.D. in Computer Science or Mathematics and an established research record in one or more of the following fields:

applied formal methods
electronic voting systems (of primary importance)
rigorous software engineering
trust and trustworthiness
logic and semantics
logical frameworks and type theory
proof theory and higher-order theorem proving
program verification
Early expressions of interest are encouraged: Carsten Schuermann ( carsten at itu.dk), Joseph Kiniry (kiniry at itu.dk).

The application deadline May 15. 2011.  Please follow this link Post doc in Computer Science to file your application.

Best regards,
-- Carsten Schuermann and Joseph Kiniry
