[DMANET] Postdoc at North Carolina State University

The Department of Computer Science at North Carolina State University
invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Scholar. The researcher
will focus on obtaining results in theoretical computer science and graph
theory relevant to the initiatives engaged by Dr. Blair D. Sullivan's group
(Theory in Practice), currently funded by DARPA and the Moore Foundation.
For more information and current projects, please see

Research areas may include (but are not limited to) fixed-parameter
algorithms, approximation schemes, and applied structural graph theory.
The scholar will help identify and tackle key challenges in improving the
practicality of structural graph approaches and fixed parameter algorithms
for network data analysis. There is no teaching requirement, but by mutual
consent the postdoc may teach a theory-related course in the department
(additional compensation available). This is an excellent opportunity for
a dynamic junior researcher who is interested in
engaging in algorithms research with an interdisciplinary focus.

A PhD in computer science, mathematics, or related field is required before
the starting date of the position. A successful candidate will have
demonstrated expertise in theoretical computer science, experience in at
least one programming language (e.g. C/C++, Python), and excellent writing
and communication skills. Women and members of under-represented minority
groups are particularly encouraged to apply. The position is for a period
of up to two years, with a start date anticipated between May 1 and
September 1, 2016.

Official applications consisting of a CV, research statement, and reference
information must be submitted via: Applications
should be received by January 1, 2016 for full consideration.

Informal inquiries are welcome via email ( -
please use a subject of "Postdoc Inquiry."
