Applications are invited for the post of Post-Doctoral Research Assistant in the Computer Science Department at Royal Holloway, University of London. 

Successful applicants will be working under the direction of Dr. Matteo Sammartino on the EPSRC-funded "Verification of Hardware Concurrency via Model Learning" (CLeVer) project (EP/S028641/1)

Project Description. Digital devices increasingly rely on multi-threaded computation, with sophisticated concurrent behaviour becoming prevalent at any scale. As the complexity of these systems increases, there is a pressing need to automate the assessment of their correctness, especially with respect to concurrency-related aspects. Formal verification provides highly effective techniques to assess the correctness of systems. However, formal models are usually built by humans, and as such can be error-prone and inaccurate.

The CLeVer project aims to:

  • develop a novel verification framework that relies on learning techniques to automatically build and verify models of concurrency, with a particular focus on multi-core systems.
  • apply the framework to real-world verification tasks, in collaboration with ARM.

This is a joint research endeavour involving Royal Holloway University of LondonUniversity College London (Prof. Alexandra Silva), and ARM, world-leading designer of multi-core chips.

The ideal candidate. We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher with a PhD in one of the following areas: model-based testing and verification, formal methods for concurrency, automated analysis of hardware systems. Experience in multiple areas will be valued. Candidates ideally should also have strong  programming skills.

In return we offer a highly competitive rewards and benefits package including:

  • Generous annual leave entitlement 
  • Training and Development opportunities
  • Pension Scheme with generous employer contribution 
  • Various schemes including Cycle to Work, Season Ticket Loans and help with the cost of Eyesight testing.
  • Free parking

The post is based in Egham, Surrey where the College is situated in a beautiful, leafy campus near to Windsor Great Park and within commuting distance from London.
