Postdoctoral / Junior Researcher position in Logic

A postdoc or junior researcher position is available to join the Logic Group at the ICS for the project Metamathematics of substructural modal logics funded by the Czech Science Foundation.

[ Other job opprtunities ]

The goal of this theoretical project is to advance three underdeveloped areas of substructural modal logics, not only by obtaining new particular results, but mainly by creating general theories of algebra-valued frames and logics with layered syntax, and by establishing the foundations of quantified substructural modal logics.

We are looking for junior researchers ready to conduct unsupervised research in close collaboration with members of the project team and the Logic group, within the area of the project.
