[DMANET] Last Call: Postdoctoral Position in Algorithmic Engineering at University of Warsaw

Postdoctoral Position in Algorithmic Engineering at University of Warsaw

A postdoctoral position in the area of algorithmic engineering is
available in the Department of Mathematics, Informatics and Mechanics
at University of Warsaw under the guidance of Prof. Piotr Sankowski.
Although algorithmic engineering is the main area 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 language is not necessary, but a good knowledge of
English  is required. Salary is competitive at the European level. The
position is supported by the PAAl project (ERC Starting Grant 259515 :
Practical Approximation Algorithms).

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. The project is
executed in cooperation with Prof. Stefano Leonardi from Sapienza
University of Rome. A more detailed information about the project can
be found at http://paal.mimuw.edu.pl.

Successful candidates can start after July 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 July
1st, 2011 to:

Prof. Piotr Sankowski
