[DMANET] Open post-doc positions in ERC StG PAAl project

The PAAl project (ERC Starting Grant 259515 : Practical Approximation
Algorithms) has open positions for 2 post-doctoral researchers.

The goal of PAAl project is the development and study of practical
approximation algorithms. We will base our study on theoretical
models that can describe requirements for algorithms that make them
practically efficient. We plan to develop an efficient and useful
programming library of approximation algorithms. A more detailed
information about the project can be found at http://paal.mimuw.edu.pl.

The positions are available at University of Warsaw (project host) and
''Sapienza'' University of Rome (partner). Applications are sought from
candidates with expertise in approximation algorithms and algorithmic
aspects of networks. For Warsaw we seek candidates with special emphasis
on algorithmic and software engineering. On the other hand, for Rome
experience in approximation algorithms for network problems is considered
an advantage.

Although these are the main areas of interest, ALL candidates with
strong qualifications in algorithmic research are encouraged to
apply and will be carefully considered.

Applicants should have a PhD degree or being close to completing it.
Knowledge of Polish or Italian language is not necessary, but
good knowledge of English is required. Salary is competitive at the
European level.

Successful candidates can start between December 2010 and April 2011
(negotiable). Funding is available for up to 4 years and different
durations are possible. Travel support is available for all research
members and no teaching duty is required.

Applications (including curriculum vitae, list of publications, research
plan, names of references with their e-mail addresses, and intended period
of stay) should be sent, by email if possible, by December 15, 2010 to both:
