The team Logique de la Programmation (LDP) of the Institut de Mathématiques
de Luminy (IML) in Marseille, France, is inviting applications for a
postdoctoral position in proof theory.
Do not hesitate to forward the announcement to anyone interested


The team LDP pursues its research mainly in proof theory and theory of
computation. In particular, we are currently involved in two national research

- The LOGOI project pursues the programme of Geometry of Interaction (GoI),
  which aims at a reconstruction of logic from interaction as the primitive
  notion, considered as an abstract counterpart of cut elimination. This
  programme has started together with linear logic and has evolved since its
  early days, from the limited case of multiplicatives to recent developments
  involving the theory of von Neumann algebras and providing a strikingly new
  perspective on implicit complexity via light logics.

- The RECRE project aims at developing a better understanding of the
  computational interpretation of proofs in classical logic, in particular
  using the tools and recent results of classical realizability. This
  relates to a wide range of topics from pure mathematical logic (forcing,
  model theory) to theory of programming languages (type systems, control
  operators), through category theory and type theory.

The common goals of these projects are on one side to better understand and
refine the interactive aspects of proof theory (GoI, game semantics, etc.) and
on the other side to draw on the novel tools and concepts provided by these
domains, in order to propose new structured approaches to proof theory and
strengthen its connections with other areas of computer science.

Post Doctoral Position

This is a full-time research position for one year. It is expected to start at
the beginning of fall 2013 (between 1 Sep. and 1 Oct.). Research will take
place at the IML in Marseille. The successful applicant is of course expected
to participate to the activities of the LDP team (workshops, meetings,


Applicants must hold a PhD degree in computer science or mathematics, and
should have a strong background in logic and proof theory. Skills in an
additional area of computer science (complexity, concurrency, programming
language semantics, etc.) are very welcome.

If the PhD thesis is not defended yet, the candidate must provide the planned
defence date and the composition of the thesis committee.

Knowledge of French is not required.


To apply, please send an email to postdoc-ldp at iml.univ-mrs.fr, including your
current CV, a link to a list of your publications, and a research statement
summarizing your research activities and goals (preferably two pages at most).
You might also include the names of up to two references.

The deadline for applications is 20 june 2013.
