*Application deadline*: March 31 2015

Expeditions in Computer Augmented Program Engineering (ExCAPE

The goal of ExCAPE is to transform the way programmers develop software by
advancing the theory and practice of software synthesis. To achieve this
goal, the ExCAPE team brings together expertise in theoretical foundations
(computer-aided verification, control theory, program analysis), design
methodology (human-computer interaction, model-based design, programming
environments), and applications (concurrent programming, network protocols,
robotics, system architecture).

ExCAPE has funding available for multiple post-doctoral research positions
for the academic year 2015-2016. We seek applicants with domain expertise
necessary to advance the practice of synthesis in one of the challenge
problems <https://excape.cis.upenn.edu/challenge_problems.html> as well as
applicants with expertise in theory and tools for synthesis. Each
post-doctoral researcher will be advised by two PIs
<https://excape.cis.upenn.edu/people.html#PIs>, and will be expected to
split time between the institutions of the two mentors. For more
information, please feel free to contact any of the PIs
