[DMANET] Postdoc at North Carolina State University in Practical Parameterized Algorithms

The Department of Computer Science at North Carolina State University
invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Scholar. The researcher
will focus on obtaining results in theoretical computer science and
graph theory
relevant to the initiatives engaged by Dr. Blair D. Sullivan's group
(Theory in Practice), currently funded by the Army Research Office and the
Moore Foundation's Data Driven Discovery Initiative. For more information,
please see http://www.csc.ncsu.edu/faculty/bdsullivan.

Research areas may include (but are not limited to) parameterized
algorithms, approximation schemes, and applied structural graph theory. The
scholar will help identify and tackle key challenges in improving the
practicality of structural graph approaches and fixed parameter algorithms
for complex network analysis. Position will include a mix of traditional
theoretical computer science results and more domain-focused
collaborations. There is no teaching requirement, but by mutual consent the
postdoc may teach a theory-related course in the department (additional
compensation available). This is an excellent opportunity for a dynamic
junior researcher who is interested in engaging in algorithms research with
an interdisciplinary component.

A PhD in computer science or mathematics is required before the starting
date of the position. A successful candidate will have demonstrated
expertise in theoretical computer science including parameterized
algorithms/complexity, experience in at least one programming language
(e.g. C/C++, Python), and excellent writing and communication skills. Women
and members of under-represented minority groups are particularly
encouraged to apply. The position is for a period of up to two years, and
is available starting immediately.

Official applications consisting of a CV, research statement, and reference
information must be submitted via:
https://jobs.ncsu.edu/postings/87136. Applications
will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the position is filled. Informal
inquiries are welcome via email (blair_sullivan@ncsu.edu) - please use
a subject of "Postdoc Inquiry."
