A position as post-doctoral researcher is available in the group for
Computational Logic (http://www.dmg.tuwien.ac.at/fg2/) at the Faculty
of Mathematics of the Vienna University of Technology. This position
is part of a research project on the proof theory of induction. The
aim of this project is to further deepen our understanding of the
structure of proofs by induction and to develop new algorithms for the
automation of inductive theorem proving. Techniques of relevance
include cut-elimination, witness extraction, Herbrand's theorem.

The sucessful candidate is expected to have (or be close to
completing) a PhD in mathematics or computer science and a strong
background in proof theory. Experience in one or more of the following
areas is an advantage: formal languages, complexity, automated theorem
proving, unification theory. The ability to work in a team is an
important prerequisite.

The employment is full-time (40h / week). The salary is EUR 37.400,-
after taxes per year. The position is initially for 1 year - an
