2 × PhD Positions

Applications are invited for PhD study on any aspect of functional programming, type theory, logic, category theory, coalgebra etc. Candidates need not have a topic in mind, as we have plenty of ideas! The positions are expected to start on 1 October 2019, are fully funded for UK or EU students, and will last for 3 years.

The MSP group at the University of Strathclyde contains some marvellous researchers (if we do say so ourselves) and prides itself on its friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Members of the group are Dr Bob Atkey, Dr Ross Duncan, Dr Fredrik Nordvall Forsberg, Professor Neil Ghani, Dr Clemens Kupke, and Dr Conor McBride.

Anyone interested should in the first instance contact Professor Neil Ghani ( and outline their academic background. Applications will be considered on a first come, first served basis.
