[DMANET] DEADLINE APPROACHING: MADALGO PhD student and Post Doc positions

MADALGO PhD student and Post Doc positions

Center for Massive Data Algorithmics (MADALGO), is a basic research
center funded by the Danish National Research Foundation. The center is
located in the Department of Computer Science, Aarhus University,
Denmark, but also includes researchers at CSAIL, Massachusetts Institute
of Technology, at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics and at
Frankfurt University. The center covers all areas of the design,
analysis and implementation of algorithms and data structures for
processing massive data (interpreted broadly to cover computations where
data is large compared to the computational resources), with focus on
I/O-efficient, cache-oblivious and streaming algorithms. for more information.

Starting August 1, 2015 or later, several positions are available at
MADALGO under the supervision of Professor Lars Arge
(, Associate Professor Gerth S. Brodal
(, Associate Professor Peyman Afshani
(, and Assistant Professor Kasper Green Larsen

Several PhD student positions may be available. The positions are
administered through Graduate School of Science and Technology at Aarhus
University ( and include full
tuition waiver and a very competitive scholarship. Applications are
welcomed from students with at least three years of full-time study by
August 2015. Students with a strong background in the design and
analysis of algorithms will be preferred.

One or more MADALGO postdoc positions at the level of Research Assistant
Professor of Computer Science are also available. Postdoc positions are
initially for one year, but can be extended with an additional year by
mutual consent. MADALGO welcomes postdoctoral researchers with clearly
demonstrated experience and skills in the design and analysis of
algorithms and data structures. Researchers with experience with
I/O-efficient, cache-oblivious or streaming algorithms, as well as with
implementation of such algorithms (algorithm engineering experience) are
preferred. The responsibilities of MADALGO postdocs include work on
algorithms for massive dataset problems in collaboration with center
researchers, along with modest teaching responsibilities.

The application deadlines for PhD student and postdoc positions is May
1, 2015. Applicants for PhD student positions should apply using the
Aarhus Graduate School of Science and Technology application system also
accessible Applicants for postdoc positions
should apply by uploading a letter of interest and a CV, as well as
indicate at least two names of references for recommendations, using the
application form available
