We are looking for a full-time research scientist in formal verification to
join us, the Trustworthy Systems group, at Data61, CSIRO. Our highly
international team is located on the UNSW campus, close to the beautiful
beaches of sunny Sydney, Australia, one of the world's most liveable cities.
Our vision is a world in which computer users can choose all three: correct,
secure, and fast. We believe that most current approaches to building systems
are fundamentally flawed. We aim to demonstrate a better way. Our approach is
rooted in foundational, formal verification using theorem provers (e.g.,
Isabelle, HOL4), and high-performance system design. If you find this vision
appealing, and have ideas about how to pursue it, we want to hear from you.
Our team brings together a unique combination of expertise in systems,
security, formal verification, and programming languages. We are the creators
of seL4, the world's first operating system microkernel with a
machine-checked proof (in Isabelle/HOL). seL4 boasts both extreme performance
and foundational binary-level correctness and security proofs. We are also
involved in CakeML, the most realistic verified compiler for a functional
programming language, and a promising approach to scaling full verification
up to applications code.
We are building on these successes in various directions, including
concurrency (formal reasoning and implementation), timing (real-time
guarantees and timing channels), and whole-system verification using
component systems (e.g., CAmKES) and code+proof co-generation.
We publish in top conferences, and are involved in multiple international
research collaborations. You will have the opportunity to teach at UNSW
should you wish to take it. We have a flexible, friendly, and intellectually
stimulating work environment.
We value diversity in all forms and welcome applications from people of all
ages, including people with disabilities, and those who identify as LGBTIQ.
