Researcher on Verification of Linear Dynamical Systems
University of Oxford - Department of Computer Science
|Salary:||£30,738 to £37,768|
|Contract Type:||Contract / Temporary|
|Placed on:||11th October 2016|
|Closes:||10th November 2016|
Wolfson Building, Parks Road, Oxford.
A vacancy has arisen for a full-time researcher on the topic of Verification of Linear Dynamical Systems, led by Professor James Worrell. The overall aim of the project is to develop techniques to solve fundamental computational problems arising in the verification of discrete and continuous linear dynamical systems, including Markov chains, linear recurrence sequences, linear while loops, and linear differential equations.
Building on recent progress in this area, you will develop algorithms to solve reachability, termination, and synthesis problems for these models by combining a range of computational techniques, including quantifier elimination and lattice reduction, and using results from number theory (particularly lower bounds in Diophantine approximation).
The primary selection criteria are a doctoral degree in a relevant area of science, and a documented track record of the ability to conduct and complete research and programming projects in relevant fields (automated verification, automata theory, dynamical systems, or computational number theory), as witnessed by published material or well-documented sources.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 10 November 2016.
