Research Fellow in Verification at the University of Surrey, UK

by Brijesh Dongol, Sept. 4, 2018

We are seeking a post-doctoral research fellow for the EPSRC-funded research project "Verifiably Correct Transactional Memory" at the University of Surrey, UK. The position is fixed-term for 3 years.

The main responsibility of the post holder will be the verification of transactional memory implementations, examining their relationship with weak memory in both hardware (ARM, Intel TSO) and programming languages (C++, Java). We will also consider the interaction between transactional and non-transactional code, and explore the design space for hybrid transactional memory in the context of modern multi-core architectures. The post holder will be working closely with researchers at partner universities (Sheffield and Kent) and industry (ARM and Mozilla), as well associated partners (University of Augsburg, University of Paderborn, DePaul University, the University of Queensland, and Victoria University of Wellington). Further details of the project are available here:

The post holder will benefit from the research environment provided by the Surrey Centre for Cyber Security, an Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Research recognised by the British Government. The Centre’s research focus is on the design and analysis of security protocols, data privacy, access control, privacy preserving security, trustworthy systems, and distributed ledger technologies.
