                  Post-doctoral position
               at LIPN, Université Paris 13

   Implicit computational complexity and linear logic

A 12-month post-doctoral position is vacant at the Laboratoire 
d'Informatique de Paris Nord (LIPN), Université Paris 13, within 
the research project COMPLICE (Implicit Computational Complexity, 
Concurrency and Extraction, 
http://www-lipn.univ-paris13.fr/complice/), funded by the French 
national research agency (ANR).

Please note that the position is to be filled relatively quickly, 
so the deadline is quite short:

   deadline for applications : 12 July 2011 (next week!)
                notification : 13 July 2011
               starting date :  1 October 2011 (no later than 1 
Dec 2011)

________________ Scientific context ___________________

COMPLICE is a four-year project whose partner sites are ENS Lyon, 
Université Paris 13 and LORIA-Nancy.  The project's goal is to 
investigate the foundations and applications of implicit 
computational complexity (ICC), along the lines of semantics and 
logic, functional programming, program extraction from proofs, 
quantitative properties and ICC for concurrent systems.

______________________ Location _______________________

LIPN (http://www-lipn.univ-paris13.fr/?lang=uk) plays a major role 
in research in computer science within the northern Paris area. 
The post-doc researcher will work within the Logic, Computation 
and Reasoning group 
(http://www-lipn.univ-paris13.fr/LCR/?lang=uk), among whose main 
research directions there are proof theory, linear logic, 
lambda-calculus, implicit computational complexity, denotational 
semantics, and system specification and verification.  LIPN is 
situated in Villetaneuse, in the northern suburbs of Paris, within 
the campus of the University Paris 13 (about 45 minutes from the 
city center by public transportation).

Interaction with the other sites of the COMPLICE project is
possible, as with other sites in the Paris area (PPS, LIX, etc.).

________________ Salary and benefits __________________

The monthly salary will be around 2000 EUR.  This is then subject 
to income tax.  The position is for 12 months.

The post-doc researchers will be affiliated to the French social 
security system, and will be entitled to unemployment benefit at 
the end of the contract.

____________________ Requirements _____________________

The applicants must hold a PhD.  We are especially interested in 
candidates with background in one or several of the following fields:
- linear logic (proof nets, geometry of interaction, ludics)
- rewriting theory (lambda-calculus, interaction nets)
- denotational semantics (category theory, games semantics, 
vectorial semantics)
- implicit computational complexity (light logics, type systems 
for complexity)

_______________ Application procedure _________________

Applicants should send a detailed resume by email EXCLUSIVELY, to 
the addresses

   Damiano.Mazza at lipn.univ-paris13.fr
   Virgile.Mogbil at lipn.univ-paris13.fr

preferably with the subject containing the words "Complice 
Application" (to be sure that the application is not accidentally 
eaten by spam filters...).
