Disclaimer: This message does NOT include the word "types" in it, as requested on the types list webpage,
but the successful candidate will also need to define a static semantics of C/LLVM.


The Formal Systems Laboratory at UIUC is looking for an excellent postdoc or
researcher to work on the formal K semantics of C/LLVM and/or other low-level
languages.  The semantics will then be used for program analysis and
verification, using the novel matching logic approach and mechanical
translations of K into Coq/Isabelle/ACL2.

If interested, please contact Grigore Rosu (grosu at illinois.edu).
