[DMANET] Postdoctoral position in Algorithms/Lower Bounds at Bristol University, UK


Application deadline June 6, 2016. Start date negotiable but
ideally by September 2016.

Salary: 35,609 to £40,082 UK pounds (approx 52k to 59k US dollars).

This is a fixed term appointment terminating end of December 2017.

The Algorithms team in the Department of Computer Science at Bristol
University is looking to hire a postdoctoral researcher in the areas
of algorithms research and/or lower bounds. The post will require a
high level of expertise in areas which may include but not be limited
to data structures/algorithms, discrete probability, discrete
mathematics and combinatorics.

Our current work focuses on pattern matching in dynamically changing
data however we also have a broader interest in other aspects of
algorithms/theory research.

The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in theoretical computer science
("Track A") or closely related mathematical area together with a
strong track record of international publications in algorithms or
theoretical computer science ("Track A") venues. This may include for
example, ICALP/SODA/STOC/FOCS. We welcome applications from talented
computer scientists whose main interest has been in mainstream "Track
A" theory rather than specifically pattern matching.

Please see for full details both of the post and
the application process.
