[DMANET] Deadline approaching: Postdoctoral positions at MPII and U. de Chile in Algorithms

A joint postdoctoral fellowship will be available at MPII (Saarbruecken)
and Universidad de Chile (Santiago) starting in August 2016, or by mutual
agreement at any date thereafter. The position is funded by the MPII-UChile
collaborative grant "Fast algorithms for Massive Data Set", therefore we
are looking for applicants with interests in the design and analysis of

The position is for 12 months renewable by mutual agreement. The selected
candidate will spend 6 months at U. de Chile working with Jose Correa, Jose
Soto, Jose Verschae and/or Andreas Wiese and 6 months at MPII working with
researchers from the Algorithms and Complexity group (e.g., Parinya
Chalermsook, and/or Antonios Antoniadis). Travel support is available.

Applicants must hold a recent PhD or be close to finishing their thesis.
Applications including curriculum vitae, list of publications, research
plan (1 page), and names of references with their e-mail addresses, should
be sent electronically to Jose Soto . To ensure full
consideration the application should be sent before the deadline of June
1st, 2016. Late applications might be considered on a case by case basis.

The Max-Planck-Institute for Informatics (MPII) is located on the campus of
the Universitaet des Saarlandes in Saarbruecken, Germany. Currently, around
40 researchers of several nationalities work in the Algorithms and
Complexity Department. The working language is English. The group
collaborates with several of the major research institutions in Europe and
the U.S. and has high international visibility.

The University of Chile is the main research institution in Chile. Its
school of Physical and Mathematical Sciences gathers 200+ full time
professors together with a large number of postdocs and researchers. The
school provides one of the very best research environments in Latin America
for exact sciences and technology.
