[DMANET] Postdoctoral Positions at IST Austria

The Distributed Algorithms and Systems Group at IST Austria has two open
postdoctoral positions. We are broadly interested in distributed computing
and its applications to distributed systems, with a focus on distributed
optimization and machine learning.

The positions are part of the ScaleML ERC Starting Grant project, whose
goal is to develop new theory, algorithms, and systems for scalable machine
learning. The ideal candidate would have a strong background in CS, with a
PhD in distributed computing or a related field. Applicants with experience
in optimization theory or distributed systems implementation are
particularly encouraged, although all strong applicants will be given
proper consideration.

For questions about the positions and the application process, please
contact dan.alistarh@ist.ac.at. The application should contain a CV,
publication list, a 1-page statement describing motivation and research
interests, and links to your top two or three publications.

The Institute of Science and Technology Austria (IST Austria) is a young
international institute dedicated to basic research and graduate education
in the natural and mathematical sciences, located on the outskirts of
Vienna. IST Austria is committed to equality and diversity.
