Apologies for multiple postings
Please distribute to potential candidates

Recently, I advertised a postdoc position on the EPSRC-funded project
"Coalgebras, Modal Logic, Stone Duality".

Additionally, there is now a departmentally funded PhD studentship
(GTA) available. The GTA scheme involves some teaching and runs for 4
years. Unfortunately, the position is probably only of interest to
students with an EU nationality: the university seems to be unwilling to
waive the fees for non-EU nationals.

The topic of the PhD will be in the area of "Coalgebras, Modal Logic,
Stone Duality". Repeating from my previous mail:

>From the point of view of computer science, the project is about
logics for transition systems (coalgbras). From the mathematical point
of view, the project will explore the dualities arising from extending
basic, Stone-type dualities via an algebra-coalgebra duality. This
draws on results and concepts from modal logic, domain theory,
universal algebra and category theory. A background in one (or more)
of the above areas is desirable.

The official announcement and application form is available at (Ref


The applications should be submitted no later than 18 October 2005.

If you have any questions please contact me via email.

Best wishes,
