We welcome applications for two (2) post-doctoral scholarships.

               *** DEADLINE 15 OCTOBER 2009 ****

The positions are funded by the research project "Certified Interfaces
for Integrity and Security in Extensible Web-based Applications", in
the context of the Carnegie Mellon-Portugal partnership, an
international research / educational initiative launched by FCT, the
portuguese national science foundation (see www.cmuportugal.org).

Project partners are CITI FCT UNL (L. Caires), LASIGE FC UL
(V. Vasconcelos), Carnegie Mellon CSD (F. Pfenning), and industrial partner
OutSystems SA. The hosting environment will be the PLT Group at CITI
(leading site) for the first position and the GLOSS Group at LASIGE for the
second position, with extended visits to Carnegie Mellon Department of
Computer Science. More information about the research environment may
be found at websites of the hosting institutions.

The objective of the project is the development of techniques for
enforcing security, integrity, and correctness requirements on
distributed extensible web-based applications by introducing novel,
semantically rich notions of interface description languages, based on
advanced type systems and logics, such as resource / epistemic logics
and behavioral / session types. We seek applicants with strong
interest in some of the following topics: programming language design
and implementation, programming logics and types, verification, and

The contracts are for the 3 years duration of the project.
