[DMANET] Open Ended Research Associate Position - Time Complexity Analysis of Bio-inspired Computation


The Department of Computer Science, The University of Sheffield, offers a
Research Associate position to work on the time complexity analysis of
bio-inspired computation techniques. The position is part of an EPSRC
funded project entitled "Rigorous Runtime Analysis of Bio-inspired
Computing" started on March 31st 2015. The project is based in the
Computational Biology Group at the Department of Computer Science and
reports to Dr. Pietro Oliveto.

The Research Associate will work in a well-connected international team
with expertise in bio-inspired computing, to develop the research
objectives of the project and to contribute to its administration under the
supervision of the Principal Investigator. The Research Associate will
collaborate closely and drive the interaction with several national and
international project partners. She/He will also contribute to the
organisation of activities aimed at maximising the dissemination and impact
of the results as well as developing further research objectives and
contributing to future bids for research funding.

To apply you should have completed, or nearly completed, a PhD in computer
science. You should have good knowledge and strong experience of either the
theoretical analysis of bio-inspired computation techniques or of the
computational complexity analysis of problem specific deterministic and
randomized algorithms or other stochastic processes. You should have high
level analytical and computational skills and the ability to co-supervise
PhD students in bio-inspired computation.

These posts offer a competitive salary. For the duration of the project
funding is readily available for conference attendance and research visits
to partner organisations. Project partners include, amongst others,
research groups at the University of Birmingham, UK, at the Technical
University of Denmark (DTU) in Lyngby, Denmark and at the University of
Adelaide, Australia.
