Check out the funded doctoral program in logic in computer science!

Funded Doctoral Positions

TU Wien, TU Graz, and JKU Linz are seeking exceptionally talented and motivated students for their joint doctoral program LogiCS. The LogiCS doctoral college focuses on interdisciplinary research topics covering

(i) computational logic, and applications of logic to
(ii) databases and artificial intelligence as well as to
(iii) computer-aided verification.

LogiCS is a doctoral college focusing on logic and its applications in  computer science. Successful applicants will work with and be supervised by leading researchers in the fields of computational logic, databases and knowledge representation, and computer-aided
verification.

We are looking for 1-2 doctoral students per faculty member, where 30%  of the positions are reserved for highly qualified female candidates. The doctoral positions are funded for a period of 3 years according to the funding scheme of the Austrian Science Fund (details: http://www.fwf.ac.at/de/projects/personalkostensaetze.html) The funding can be extended for one additional year contingent on a
placement at one of our international partner institutions.

The applicants are expected to have completed an excellent diploma or master’s degree in computer science, mathematics, or a related field. Candidates with comparable achievements will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Applications by the candidates need to be
submitted electronically.

bpextra: entire deductions in bussproofs.sty

The LaTeX package bussproofs.sty for typesetting natural deduction/sequent calculus proofs is nifty especially for its nice alignment of sequents.  By contrast to the proof.sty package, it doesn’t allow you to typeset missing parts of a proof, though. proofs.sty has the \deduce command for that; it typesets vertical dots instead of a horizontal inference line.

I wrote an add-on for bussproofs.sty that does the same.  Not quite ready for prime time yet, but if you like playing with bleeding-edge stuff, you can get it here.  Feedback? Please file an issue on github.
