Applications are invited for the post of Post-Doctoral Research Assistant in the Computer Science Department at Royal Holloway, University of London. 

Successful applicants will be working under the direction of Dr. Matteo Sammartino on the EPSRC-funded "Verification of Hardware Concurrency via Model Learning" (CLeVer) project (EP/S028641/1)

For an informal discussion about the post, please contact Dr. Matteo Sammartino on Matteo.Sammartino@rhul.ac.uk.

Project Description. The CLeVer project aims to develop novel verification methods for hardware systems, with a particular focus on important components such as CPUs, DRAMs, and similar. 

As the complexity of these systems increases, there is a pressing need to automate the assessment of their correctness. Formal verification provides highly effective techniques to assess the correctness of systems. However, formal models are usually built by humans, and as such can be error-prone and inaccurate.  The CLeVer project will explore the use of model learning to automatically build and verify models of hardware behaviour. This research will be informed by our collaboration with ARM, world-leading designer of processors.

This is a joint research endeavour involving Royal Holloway University of London, University College London (Prof. Alexandra Silva), and ARM.

The ideal candidate. We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher with a PhD in one of the following areas: model-based testing and verification, model learning, automated analysis of hardware systems. Experience in multiple areas will be valued. Candidates ideally should also have strong  programming skills.

In return we offer a highly competitive rewards and benefits package including:

  • Generous annual leave entitlement 
  • Training and Development opportunities
  • Pension Scheme with generous employer contribution 
  • Various schemes including Cycle to Work, Season Ticket Loans and help with the cost of Eyesight testing. 
  • Free parking 

The post is based in Egham, Surrey where the College is situated in a beautiful, leafy campus near to Windsor Great Park and within commuting distance from London.
