[DMANET] Postdoc position in algorithms for big data, University of Warwick UK

We are seeking to recruit a Post-doctoral Research Fellow to work in the
area of algorithms for analysing large data sets. The position is based
at the University of Warwick, in the United Kingdom (UK).

You will be expected to perform high quality research under the
supervision of Professor Graham Cormode, as part of the ERC funded
project 'Small Summaries for Big Data'. This can encompass streaming
algorithms, sketching and dimensionality reduction, distributed
monitoring and mergable summaries, verification of outsourced
computation, or other related topics. The expectation is that you will
produce breakthough research results in the summarisation of large
volumes of data, and publish these results in top rated venues.

You will possess a PhD or an equivalent qualification in Computer
Science or a very closely related discipline (or you will shortly be
obtaining it). You should have a strong back ground in one of the
following areas: algorithm design and analysis; randomised and
approximation algorithms; communication complexity and lower bounds;
streaming or sublinear algorithms. The post is based in the Department
of Computer Science at the University of Warwick, but collaborations
with closely related research organisations such as the Centre for
Discrete Mathematics and its Applications (DIMAP), the Warwick Institute
for the Science of Cities (WISC) and the newly formed Alan Turing
Institute (ATI) will be strongly encouraged.

Candidates should provide with their application form a CV, a list of
publications and a research statement.

Closing date: 26th April 2017
