We are seeking a Post-Doctoral Research Associate to work on a project
funded by the EPRSC grant Reasoning with Relaxed Memory Models
(EP/F036345, http://gow.epsrc.ac.uk/ViewGrant.aspx?GrantRef=EP/F036345/1), 
led by Peter Sewell and Matt Parkinson.

The scope of the grant includes development of accurate and rigorous
memory models for real-world multiprocessors and programming
languages, semantics and verification tools, and verified compilation;
you would work on one or more of these.

You should have a keen interest in applying rigorous semantic
techniques to real-world systems, with a strong background in one or
more of the following:

  * Relaxed Memory Models

  * Programming Language Semantics

  * Automated Proof Assistants

  * Program Verification

Enquiries about the project should be addressed to Dr Peter Sewell
(http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~pes20/). Initial work on processor models
can be found here: http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~pes20/weakmemory/.

Applications should include:

  * a Curriculum Vitae

  * a brief statement of the particular contribution you would make to
    the project

  * a completed form PD18 (downloadable from the Personnel
