PhD studentships: Reasoning about Relaxed Memory Models

Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge


We have a number of PhD studentships available for people to work on
the semantics of concurrent programs, focussed especially on the
relaxed memory models of real-world multiprocessors and programming
languages, funded by EPSRC grant EP/H005633 ("Semantic Foundations for
Real-World Systems"):

  http://gow.epsrc.ac.uk/ViewGrant.aspx?GrantRef=EP/H005633/1

Initial results from the project can be found here:

The grant can provide maintenance and fees for Home or EU students.
Applications should be received as soon as possible, and at least by
mid-February 2010.  Overseas (non-EU) students may wish to apply to
the Gates/CISS/Cambridge Trusts for the additional costs of overseas
fees, for which the deadline is December 1st/15th 2009:
