[ The Types Forum (announcements only), http://lists.seas.upenn.edu/mailman/listinfo/types-announce ]
Dear all, starting next academic year (2011/2012) I plan to have the School of Mathematics of the Institute for Advanced Study to host a small number of people working in type theory and related areas. I am especially but not exclusively interested in the development of type-theoretic foundations of mathematics, connections to homotopy theory, various generalizations of inductive types and classification of type theories by proof-theoretic strength. In the academic year 2012/2013 the institute will host a special programs on type-theoretic foundations of mathematics and quite a few positions in the related fields will be available. In the coming, 2011/2012 academic year no special activities related to type theory are planned and applications in the related areas will be considered as a part of the general application process. For the basic info see https://www.math.ias.edu/ and in particular https://www.math.ias.edu/administration/how-to-apply . A description of the 2012/2013 program will be on the web site in a few weeks. When applying, please state "type theory" as the general area of interests to make it easier for me to identify all the relevant applications. With any questions e-mail me at vladi...@ias.edu . Vladimir.
