Three PhD student positions in "Logic & Games"

The Research Training Site GLoRiClass ("Games in Logic Reaching Out for Classical Game Theory") invites applications for 3 PhD positions in the field of Logic and Games (starting as soon as possible; at the lastest on February 1, 2007).

We are looking for candidates with a strong background in mathematical logic, philosophical logic, theoretical computer science, or theoretical linguistics (or in another area related to the project topic such as game theory), and an interest in writing a dissertation on Logic and Games. There will be one position each in the themes "Games in Mathematics", "Games in Linguistics", and "Games and Social Interaction". The successful candidates are expected to develop their thesis topic within the first six months in collaboration with the researchers at the ILLC.

The candidates are expected to have a strong interdisciplinary interest and be open minded. While the focus of the appointment is on research training, it will include moderate teaching duties in logic-related courses. Successful candidates will have a research-oriented Master's degree (MSc/MA) or equivalent qualifications by the time of appointment.

DEADLINE: November 30, 2006
For more information (including detailed information about how to apply and information on formal eligibility for EU-funded projects), please refer to the website at http://www.illc.uva.nl/GLoRiClass/index.php?page=2 or contact Dr B Löwe ().
