[DMANET] Associate Professor Position in Aix-Marseille University (French)

A research and teaching position at the level of assistant professor
(French: maître de conférences) in Theoretical Computer Science is
available in the Aix-Marseille University in the south of France. This
is a full time and permanent faculty position. Teaching is in the French
language so the candidate should be able to communicate and teach in
French. The preferred research profile is in the area of Distributed
algorithms (see details below).

Interested candidates are expected to contact members of the appropriate
research group before making a formal application.
Application deadline: 30 March 2017.

Additional information about the position (in French) is available at
the link below and on the online application portal (GALAXIE) used for
all university positions in France.

Full Profile Information:
The recruited associate professor will join one of the 7 research groups
of the Theoretical Computer Science Laboratory (LIF). There is a
priority for the DALGO (Distributed Algorithms) research group.

The DALGO research group, created in January 2014, performs research on
fundamental aspects of distributed computing. Understanding the
functioning of distributed systems is fundamental for practical
applications as well as in theoretical computer science. The members of
DALGO are interested in the computational power of many models of
distributed computing, as well as on the distributed complexity of
solving problems in these models. The four main research topics studied
by the group are: the design and the analysis of distributed algorithms;
the study of mobile agent systems; the modelling and analysis of dynamic
networks; sensors networks and synchronous distributed programming.

The candidate should have an expertise on additional aspects of
distributed algorithms, or in some of the topics already studied by the
group. He or she should have demonstrated a strong record of
contributions in fundamental aspects of distributed computing.
