[DMANET] Ph.D positions available, CUNY, New York

Applications are invited for fully-funded Ph.D. positions in the Department
of Computer Science at the City University of New York (CUNY). The selected
candidate(s) will collaborate with Prof. Mayank Goswami (
http://eniac.cs.qc.cuny.edu/mgoswami/) on algorithms for big data, with an
emphasis on algorithms with theoretical and approximation guarantees for
problems arising in databases, social networks, computational geometry, and
machine learning. Candidates who like algorithmic problem solving and have
theoretical computer science/mathematical backgrounds are strongly
encouraged to apply.

Most of the research will be conducted at the CUNY graduate center (
) in Manhattan, New
York. The position pays for a modest but sufficient (by NYC standards)
stipend. Throughout your tenure, you will conduct original research that
will be published in highly ranked computer science conferences and
journals. The objective is to 1) spend four to five years solving cool
algorithmic problems in one of the leading hubs for high-tech , and 2) to
prepare you for a career in either industry or academia at the completion
of your dissertation.

Interested candidates should email Prof. Mayank Goswami at
mayank.isi@gmail.com with a summary of their backgrounds and interests.
Applications will be received through the graduate center website, at
