[DMANET] Two postdoc positions on Algorithmic and Mechanism Design Research in Online Markets at Sapienza University of Rome

*Two postdoc positions within the ERC Advanced Grant project "Algorithmic
and Mechanism Design Research in Online Markets" (AMDROMA) led by Stefano
Leonardi are available at Sapienza University of Rome. The project AMDROMA
considers research questions in algorithms and mechanism design that are
central for today's Internet economy. The focus of the work will be on the
development of new methods in research areas such as algorithmic mechanism
design, online and approximation algorithms, modelling uncertainty in
algorithms and mechanisms, and large-scale algorithmic data analysis. The
project also intends to apply the new methods to solve specific problems in
Internet advertisement, sharing economy, and online labour
marketplaces.Each postdoctoral researchers will be associated to one or
more of the three areas of investigation of AMDROMA: i) market and auction
design, ii) models of uncertainty and algorithmic learning, iii)
large-scale matching and clustering methods. The research will primarily
focus on theoretical investigation, data driven modeling, and experimental
validation. Postdocs of AMDROMA are expected to contribute in defining
research problems of interest of the project, finding and analyzing novel
solutions, writing research papers, and collaborating with PhD students and
other postdoctoral researchers. Applicants should hold a PhD or be close
to complete a PhD in computer science, computer engineering, or related
fields. There are two levels for the position: Junior and Senior
Postdoctoral Researcher. Fresh PhDs will be considered for the first level
and everybody else for both levels.The position can start as soon as
possible. The positions can be extended up to three years. Salary is
competitive at the European level. Applications including a CV and a
statement of research should be sent to Stefano Leonardi <>preferably before
September 30th, 2018.*
