We have an open  5 year position for an assistant professor.

Current areas of interest are:
   - domain specific embedded languages (especially in the form of  
combinator languages)
   - programming language design and implementation
   - generic programming techniques
   - tools and methods for building complex systems out of a large  
number of artefacts in a controlled way
   - program verification
   - systems for generating informative feedback to users in the case  
of inconsistencies in specifications
   - advanced type systems and their implementation
   - software generation

We strongly believe that the functional programming paradigm is an  
excellent starting point for many new developments in the above  
mentioned areas. In our research we try to identify real problems, to  
find solutions for them, to formalise these, and to build tools in  
order to convey the solutions to the problem holders. Thus we try to  
combine sound principles for solving real-life problems. Given the  
increased pressure on our finances cooperation with industry is of  
growing importance, which will also hold for this position.
