The IT University of Copenhagen invites applications for several Postdoctoral 
fellow positions on trustworthy electronic election technology.  The positions 
are part of the DemTech project, a larger effort to prove that it is possible 
to modernize the democratic process without losing the trust of the voters.  We 
plan to use epistemic logical framework technology and cryptographic methods, 
such as full homomorphic encryption.  The research will be conducted under the 
supervision of Profs. Joseph Kiniry and Carsten Schürmann.   A successful 
applicant will be hired initially for one year with the option to renew.  The 
start date is flexible, but the position cannot be filled before 1 July, 2011. 
Candidates are also encouraged to explore research ideas beyond the project 
description. The positions provide significant opportunities for professional 

Postdoctoral candidates should have a Ph.D. in Computer Science or Mathematics 
and an established research record in one or more of the following fields:

applied formal methods
electronic voting systems (of primary importance)
rigorous software engineering
trust and trustworthiness
logic and semantics
logical frameworks and type theory
proof theory and higher-order theorem proving
program verification
Early expressions of interest are encouraged: Carsten Schuermann ( 
cars...@itu.dk), Joseph Kiniry (kin...@itu.dk).

The application deadline May 15. 2011.  Please follow this link Post doc in 
Computer Science to file your application.

Best regards,
-- Carsten Schuermann and Joseph Kiniry
