Description of the Position

      A research position is available working on modular reasoning and
      compositional analysis for computer systems and software with special
      interest in mobility and concurrency at Heriot-Watt University [1]
      working with Joe Wells [2]. The position is in the ULTRA (Useful
      Logics, Types, Rewriting, and their Automation) group [3] in the
      Computer Science Department [4] in the School of Mathematical and
      Computer Sciences [5] at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh [6], the
      capital of Scotland [7]. The position involves collaboration with the
      EC, EPSRC, NATO, and NSF-funded Church Project [8] as well as various
      contacts in the European Global Computing community.

      The research will include collaboration on the Poly* [9] polymorphic
      retargetable type system for process and mobility calculi, but is not
      limited to that topic.

      It will be helpful if the researcher is competent in 1 or more of the
      following knowledge areas which are likely to be used in the project.

          * Formal calculi for reasoning about the meaning of computer systems
              (including computer programs), especially those dealing with
              aspects of (a) concurrency and (b) mobility, but also those
              dealing with aspects of (c) modules, linking, and loading, (d)
              resource usage, (e) components, (f) staged compilation, (g)
              classes and objects, etc.
          * Analysis of systems represented in formal calculi.
          * Constraint solving and unification.
          * Type systems, especially those with features similar to
              intersection and union types.
          * Programming languages good for use for any of the above.

      The duration of the position is from 6 months to 1.5 years, depending
      on the circumstances of the researcher, with possible extensions up to
      3 years total depending on salary, experience, performance, and
      funding. Applications to spend a shorter period (e.g., the sabbatical
      leave of an established academic) will be considered. The initial
      salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience in the
      range from 22289 GBP to 30002 GBP per year. The position is available
      immediately. It is preferred that before starting the researcher will
      have completed a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline within Computer
      Science. Very good Ph.D. students elsewhere who want to spend part of
      their studies visiting Heriot-Watt will be considered. Applicants from
      outside the European Economic Area (EEA) will be considered.

      The researcher will probably collaborate on 1 or more of the following
      activities. The specific activities will be matched to the strengths
      of the researcher.

          * Designing new type systems for compositional (modular) analysis of
              systems that may involve one or more aspects of mobility,
              concurrency, and modularity, as well as other features such as
              resource awareness, components, run-time code generation, objects,
          * Designing analysis algorithms for the new type systems.
          * Designing theories (e.g., "calculi") for reasoning about the
              meaning of computer systems with some of the features mentioned
          * Making software systems incorporating the new type systems,
              algorithms, and calculi.
          * Writing scientific reports on the work done.

Applying for the Position

      Please use the reference code 142/05/L to help prevent your
      application from getting mixed up. Please convert Microsoft Word
      documents to a public, standard, and non-proprietary format. The best
      format is PDF, because some of our staff will encounter difficulties
      with HTML or PostScript.

      To formally apply for this position, please do as many as possible of
      the items in the following list by 2005-11-11. The first 2 are
      absolutely necessary and the 3rd is quite important. If you expect
      trouble meeting the deadline, please ask Joe Wells what to do.

          * Cause 3 recommendation letters to be sent by their writers. Do not
              send the letters with your application. (If someone tells you the
              letters are not needed yet or that less than 3 are needed, this is
              a mistake. We want to see the letters before choosing who to
          * Send the following yourself:
                    + your complete curriculum vitae, and
                    + contact details for the 3 people writing your recommendation
          * Get the Heriot-Watt Human Resources Office to send you an
              "application pack". (This contains an application form, an equal
              opportunities monitoring form, information for applicants with
              disabilities, and some additional information about Heriot-Watt
              and the position.)
          * Fill out and return by post the application form and the equal
              opportunities monitoring form. If your curriculum vitae is well
              constructed, then some information requested will be redundant, so
              just write "see c.v." in those blanks, but please return the
              application form anyway. Although the application form requests
              only the addresses of 2 references, please follow the instructions
              above instead and supply 3.
          * Optionally, also send either of the following:
                    + a brief statement about why your research accomplishments and
                        interests are a good match for the position, and
                    + up to 3 relevant publications of yours.
          * It is helpful to inform Joe Wells that you are applying so that he
              knows to ask our human resources office for your application
              materials. It is helpful to send copies to Joe Wells of any
              electronic files you submit.
          * Anyone who might need a work permit if hired (usually someone who
              is not a citizen of an EEA country) should also do the following.
              In addition to possibly being e-mailed or faxed, each letter of
              reference should also be sent by post on official-looking headed
              stationery paper and should include details on your whereabouts
              over the last two years. A work permit application also needs
              copies of any degree certificates, so it is a good idea to send
              those also at the same time as you send the rest of your
              application. Work permit applications can take quite some time for
              the UK's Home Office to process, so please avoid delays.

      For your information, it is helpful if the writers of reference
      letters provide details of:

          * the capacity in which they know the candidate,
          * the candidate's skills, abilities and performance in relation to
              the post applied for,
          * the candidate's employment record including details of the
              candidate's role and service dates,
          * their view of the candidate's suitability for the post as a whole,
              in light of the attached details and their knowledge of the
              candidate's experience and abilities,
          * any further relevant information which would assist us in making
              an appointment.
