### Postdoc at Macquarie

#### Posted by Tom Leinster

Posted on behalf of my friends in Sydney

The Centre of Australian Category Theory at Macquarie University is advertising a 2-year postdoc in relation to a project entitled “Working synthetically in higher categorical structures”. It would be particularly suitable for people who work in higher categories, 2-categories, or homotopy type theory.

Further information is available here, or feel free to get in touch with Richard Garner (richard.garner@mq.edu.au) or Steve Lack (steve.lack@mq.edu.au).

Sorry to hear that. What operating system, browser and browser version are you using?

My Firefox sometimes thinks the charset is UTF-8 while the content is declared as latin1.

I passed this on to Jacques Distler, who runs this site. He says this problem shouldn’t be happening; the charset is being declared directly.

According to about:config the Accept header is

text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8

Your server responds with a Content-Type of “application/xhtml+xml”.

When I remove “application/xhtml+xml,” your server delivers the page with Content-Type “text/html; charset=iso-8859-1”. This charset declaration is always correctly detected.

### Re: Postdoc at Macquarie

When served as application/xhtml+xml, the charset should be read from the XML declaration,

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='iso-8859-1'?>

which is the first line of the response body.

I have never seen anyone complain that Firefox fails to process that declaration.
