[isabelle] Multiple Postdoc Positions on Formal Methods for Cyber Security



[Apologies if you received multiple copies of this message]

=====================================================================
Nanyang Technological University and  Singapore University of Technology
and Design

Highly motivated applicants are sought to work on developing and
applying verification
techniques for infinite state systems in the project on Building Security
Verified System. The project aims to fully verify the execution stack of a
cyber-physical system: i.e., hardware, operating system, system libraries
and applications, using model checking and theorem proving technologies.

The postdocs will work with the PAT formal methods research group (
www.patroot.com) and other researchers at NTU and SUTD in Singapore. They
will also have the opportunity to travel overseas to collaborate with
partners of the project, including ETH Zurich, Oxford University, Royal
Holloway University of London, University of Luxembourg, Hong Kong
University of Science and Technology.

Positions for Research Fellow and Senior Research Fellow are available for
the following topics:

1. Hardware Verification.
   The preferred candidates are those with experience in one or more of the
following areas:
      - Formal methods, model checking, theorem proving.
      - Temporal logics, Higher order logic.

7. Secure Code Generation.
   The preferred candidates are those with experience in one or more of the
following areas:
      - Formal methods, model checking, theorem proving.
      - Temporal logics, Higher order logic.
      - Model driven development.

   Contact: Yang Liu (yangliu at ntu.edu.sg)

The position involves conducting basic research, developing tools, working as
part of a research team, travelling, and giving presentations. The working
language is English.

Apart from specific requirements to each topic candidate general
requirements are:
- A PhD in Computer Science or related areas is required.
- Strong background in logic and discrete math.
- Strong programming skills.
- An established research record.

The term is currently one to three years starting as early as January 2015
till all positions are filled. The salary range is 4000 SGD - 6000 SGD per
month for Research Fellows and 6000 - 8000 SGD per month for Senior
Research Fellows. Yearly bonus is 1 to 3 month salary based on the
performance. Singapore’s tax is around 3%-5% of the annual salary. 1USD =
1.25 SGD.

Candidates interested in a particular topic or topics should contact the
contact person(s) listed in the respective topics above for more details.

General inquiries can be directed at either Yang Liu, Jun Sun and Alwen Tiu.
