In the programming languages research program, we aim at improving the effectiveness and reliability of programming languages and systems. Effectiveness such that programmers can express intent at the right level of abstraction and get actionable feedback that is relevant and timely. Reliability such that programmers can trust the execution and analysis of programs.
In our teaching we emphasize the study of the fundamental concepts of programming languages that prepare students for (contributing to the design and implementation of) the programming languages and systems of the future. Our course topics include algorithms and data-structures, compiler construction, semantics, type systems, static and dynamic analysis, software verification, model checking, and language engineering.
The PL group has an opening for an assistant or associate professor in programming languages (applications are due April 15, 2019)
