[DMANET] Post-doc position announcement in Pisa

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of a
fully-funded, one-year post-doc (Assegno di Ricerca) position at the
Department of Computer Science of the University of Pisa. This
position is funded by the research project

Mathematical models and computational methods for complex networks.

This is an interdisciplinary effort between the Department of
Computer Science and the Department of Mathematics of the University
of Pisa to foster stricter collaboration between Numerical Analysis
and Operations Research experts, for the solution of complex
numerical and optimization problems related to todays' networks
(telecommunication, transportation, energy, social, ...).

The candidate should hold a Ph.D. degree in Numerical Analysis,
Operations Research or Computer Science. She/he is expected to choose
and carry forward two different lines of research among the several
ones proposed by the 14 participants to the project, bringing
together aspects of Numerical Analysis and Operations Research, and
possible also of Computer Science. The participants to the project
span several areas of Numerical Analysis and Operations Research, so
finding good matches is not expected to be hard. Proposing her/his
own research lines with analogous characteristics is also welcome,
provided they pick the (varied) interest of some of the participants
to the project.

The position is funded for one year at the standard rate for Italian
"assegno di ricerca" (23336 Euro gross, with low taxation), and some
extra money is available for travel. Candidates of all nationalities
are warmly welcome.

Information about application can be found at

The deadline for application is May 14, 2015. Interviews with the
candidates are expected to be held on May 28, 2015. Remote interviews
are possible. Formal start of the position is expected on mid June to
beginning of July.
