[DMANET] Postdoctoral position in Distributed Algorithms, Loughborough University Computer Science

<>Applications are
invited for a postdoctoral research associate position in the area of
distributed algorithms in the research group of Dr. Amitabh Trehan
at Loughborough University Computer Science.

The position is funded by an EPSRC first grant to work on an exciting new
project called *COSHER: Compact Self-healing Routing (COSHER) *(RCUK link
<>) that aims to combine
research on compact routing with resilience (self-healing) using the
standard message-passing modelling of networks (as graphs) and mathematical
analysis of proposed algorithms. The position is for a one-year fixed term
in the present instance providing a competitive 12 month salary with
standard benefits. The expected start date is Fall 2017 (Available to
begin as early as July 1, 2017).

The successful candidate should have a PhD in Computer Science, mathematics
or related disciplines with knowledge and understanding of algorithms and
CS theory and/or networks. Experience in designing distributed/network
algorithms is highly desirable.
