PhD Opportunities at the University of Birmingham

My university, the University of Birmingham, is looking for applicants to the CS PhD program. I'm putting our advertisement on my blog, in case you (or your students, if you're a professor) are looking for a graduate program -- well, we're looking for students!

Let me just say that my colleagues are a terrific bunch, who know and do work on all kinds of fantastic things. I am very happy to able to work with them, and can confirm that this is a very exciting group to be a part of.

We invite applications for PhD study at the University of Birmingham.

We are a group of (mostly) theoretical computer scientists who explore fundamental concepts in computation and programming language semantics. This often involves profound and surprising connections between different areas of computer science and mathematics. From category theory to lambda-calculus and computational effects, from topology to constructive mathematics, from game semantics to program compilation, this is a diverse field of research that continues to provide new insight and underlying structure.

  • If you are considering applying, please contact any of us. We will be very happy to discuss the opportunities available.
    • Martin Escardo (topology, computation with infinite objects, constructive mathematics, intuitionistic type theory)
