[DMANET] PostDoc position in Algorithms at IDSIA, Lugano, Switzerland

The Algorithms and Complexity Group of IDSIA, USI-SUPSI, Lugano
(Switzerland), opens one PostDoc position.
The position is initially for 1 year, with the possibility of an
extension by 1 extra year.
This position is supported by the Swiss National Foundation Excellence
Grant "Approximation Algorithms for Network Problems II".
The main goal of this project is to design improved approximation
algorithms for a wide family of Graph, Scheduling and Geometric
(offline, centralized) problems. The group is also interested in
approximation algorithms for distributed, dynamic and online settings.

The appointment is for one year with the possibility of an extension
by one extra year.
The position is available from December 1st 2018, but there is some
flexibility on the starting date.

The gross salary is roughly 80.000 CHF per year (low taxes, around 15%).
There are no teaching duties and there is generous travel support.
The ideal candidate should hold (or be close to obtaining) a Ph.D. in
Computer Science or related fields, and should have a solid
publication record in the area of algorithms and complexity (with a
preference for approximation algorithms). Top conferences in this area
include STOC, FOCS, SODA, ICALP, and ESA.

The Algorithms and Complexity group at IDSIA currently counts 8
researchers. The group has several world-wide collaborations and it
has frequently visitors.

IDSIA offers an international working environment. Lugano is a tidy
and lively town, with a wonderful view on Ceresio lake and mountains
around. Ticino Canton offers many opportunities for hiking, biking,
skiing, etc. Local restaurants serve very good (Italian style!) food.

The interested candidates should email to Prof. Fabrizio Grandoni,
- A detailed CV, including a list of publications and contacts of 2-3
- A short summary of past and current research interests.

Applications should be sent as soon as possible, possibly within the
30th of November 2018.
For any question, do not hesitate to contact:

Prof. Fabrizio Grandoni
