programming language mechanisation, design and implementation, formal
semantics, type theory and concurrency theory.

Interested candidates are encouraged to send an informal message to Prof.
Nobuko Yoshida:

Please find the full detail of the open position below.


Department of Computing, Imperial College London

Research Assistant/Associate Position (Full Time)
36,394 GBP to 49,210 GBP per annum
