General events may be found in the Upcoming Events section.
We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher who will join the research group of Prof. Sonja Smets. Preference will be given to a candidate who is active in one of the following areas:
- Logic and its applications to formal epistemology or multi-agent systems. In particular we are interested in the use of logical methods to study the dynamics of information. Topics of interest can relate to belief revision theory, social network theory, epistemic game theory, truth approximation or formal learning theory.
- Logic and its applications in the area of quantum mechanics or quantum information theory. In particular we are interested in quantum logic and its use in quantum information theory (e.g. logics used for the formal verification of quantum information protocols).
Deadline for applications: 15 June 2016. For more information, see https://www.uva.nl/en/about-the-uva/working-at-the-uva/vacancies/item/
