The Lab for AI and Verification (laiv.uk) at Heriot-Watt University,
Edinburgh is looking to fill one PhD post and one postdoctoral post. We are
looking for candidates with solid knowledge of Theorem Proving and/or
Functional/Logic programming, and enthusiasm to apply this knowledge in the
domain of Artificial Intelligence.
The PhD post is for 4 years, starting in October 2022. It covers full
stipend and PhD fees and is sponsored by the UKRI (ukri.org) and
Schlumberger Cambridge (slb.com). The company will provide additional
training and support during the PhD studies. This post needs to be filled
in as soon as possible.
We are also looking to employ a postdoctoral researcher for a 6-12 months
project to formalise Criminal law in the Functional Language Catala
<https://catala-lang.org/>. Formalising criminal law for autonomous cars is
of particular interest. This project will be in collaboration with Jonathan
Protzenko, Microsoft Research and the School of Law, Edinburgh University.
This project has a flexible starting date.
