Supported by a generous Villum Investigator Grant from VILLUM FONDEN, the Center for Basic Research in Program Verification (CPV) opened in September 2019 at Department of Computer Science, Aarhus University, Denmark.

Software systems are an integral part of modern society, and software errors and security breaches pose enormous costs and risks. Center for basic research in Program Verification (CPV) develops fundamental mathematically based models and logics for rigorous mathematical reasoning about correctness and security of software systems.

We are currently looking for Postdocs to do research in Center for Basic Research in Program Verification.

We expect that you hold a Ph.D.. degree within the field of computer science and that your profile shows the potential to do promising research within topics: extensions of higher-order concurrent separation logics (such as our Iris logic, see iris-project.org), e.g., to reason about distributed systems; probabilistic program logics; logical relations for relational reasoning about safety and security properties; formal modeling of low-level capability machines, and secure compilation; guarded cubical type theory; and Coq formalizations.

Lastly good communication skills in written and spoken English are essential to the position.

Contact information
Interested candidates are welcome to contact Professor Lars Birkedal via birkedal@cs.au.dk. For more information about Lars Birkedal’s work, see https://cs.au.dk/~birke/.

Application procedure
Shortlisting is used. This means that after the deadline for applications – and with the assistance from the assessment committee chairman, and the appointment committee if necessary, – the head of department selects the candidates to be evaluated. All applicants will be notified whether or not their applications have been sent to an expert assessment committee for evaluation. The selected applicants will be informed about the composition of the committee, and each applicant is given the opportunity to comment on the part of the assessment that concerns him/her self. Once the recruitment process is completed a final letter of rejection is sent to the deselected applicants.

Letter of reference
If you want a referee to upload a letter of reference on your behalf, please state the referee’s contact information when you submit your application. We strongly recommend that you make an agreement with the person in question before you enter the referee’s contact information, and that you ensure that the referee has enough time to write the letter of reference before the application deadline. Unfortunately, it is not possible to ensure that letters of reference received after the application deadline will be taken into consideration.

Formalities and salary range
Natural Sciences refers to the Ministerial Order on the Appointment of Academic Staff at Danish Universities under the Danish Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation.

The application must be in English and include a curriculum vitae, degree certificate, a complete list of publications, a statement of future research plans and information about research activities, teaching portfolio and verified information on previous teaching experience (if any).

Further information on qualification requirements and job content may be found in the Memorandum on Job Structure for Academic Staff at Danish Universities.

Salary depends on seniority as agreed between the Danish Ministry of Finance and the Confederation of Professional Associations.

All interested candidates are encouraged to apply, regardless of their personal background. Research activities will be evaluated in relation to actual research time. Thus, we encourage applicants to specify periods of leave without research activities, in order to be able to subtract these periods from the span of the scientific career during the evaluation of scientific productivity.
