[DMANET] Joint postdoctoral fellowships at MPI-INF and Universidad de Chile

Up to three joint postdoctoral fellowships will be available at the
Max-Planck-Institute for Informatics in Saarbrücken (MPII) and the
Universidad de Chile in Santiago (UChile) starting in March 2018, or by
mutual agreement at any date thereafter. The position is funded by the
MPII-UChile collaborative grant "Fast algorithms for Massive Data Set",
therefore we are looking for applicants with interests in the design and
analysis of algorithms.

The position is for 12 months renewable by mutual agreement. The
selected candidate will spend 6 months at the Universidad de Chile
working with Jose Correa, Jose Soto, Jose Verschae and/or Andreas Wiese
and 6 months at the MPI for Informatics working with researchers from
the Algorithms and Complexity Department, e.g., Kurt Mehlhorn and
Antonios Antoniadis. Travel support is available.

Applicants must hold a recent PhD or be close to finishing their thesis.
Applications including curriculum vitae, list of publications, research
plan (1 page), and names of references with their e-mail addresses,
should be sent electronically to Andreas Wiese To
ensure full consideration the application should be sent before the
deadline of June 30th, 2017. Late applications might be considered on a
case by case basis.

The Max-Planck-Institute for Informatics is located on the campus of the
Universität des Saarlandes in Saarbrücken, Germany. Currently, around 30
researchers of several nationalities work in the Algorithms and
Complexity Department. The working language is English. The group
collaborates with several of the major research institutions in Europe
and the U.S. and has high international visibility.

The Universidad de Chile is the main research institution in Chile. Its
school of Physical and Mathematical Sciences gathers 200+ full time
professors together with a large number of postdocs and other
researchers. The school provides one of the very best research
environments in Latin America for exact sciences and technology.
