To follow up the earlier announcement: in addition to a PhD studentship in
any research area, advertised below, we now have confirmed funding from
Microsoft Research for the following project:

Provenance for Configuration Language Security

Ideal candidates would have a background in programming languages, security
or databases, and a strong interest in combining foundational and practical
research techniques.

The application deadline for full consideration is January 28; all
applications by this date will be considered for full funding.
Applications will be accepted until the position is filled or March 1,
whichever is earlier.

Prospective applicants are strongly encouraged to contact me (
jcheney at inf.ed.ac.uk) or Paul Anderson (dcspaul at ed.ac.uk) to discuss their
suitability for the project before applying.  If you have already applied
and are interested in this position please let us know (it is not necessary
to re-apply).
