The Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing invites applications for Simons-Berkeley Research Fellowships for the Fall 2019 and/or Spring 2020 semesters. The Institute will host programs on “Proofs, Consensus, and Decentralizing Society” in Fall 2019, and on “The Quantum Wave in Computing” and “Lattices: Algorithms, Complexity and Cryptography” in Spring 2020.
The Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing invites applications for Simons-Berkeley Research Fellowships for the Summer 2019. The Institute will host programs on “Deep Learning: From Practical Challenges to Theoretical Foundations” in Summer 2019.
A 1-year postdoc position at Sorbonne university is open. The position is funded on the ANR project FOCAL. The project aims at designing approximation algorithms for clustering problems in different settings such as online, beyond worst-case, embedded graphs. Possible Collab. with Varun Kanade at Oxford or Arnaud de Mesmay in Grenoble.
Start date in 2019. Send CV and email of 3 references.
LECTURER, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS), to serve as a lecturer on discrete mathematics, algorithms, and machine learning. Will participate in educational activities during the fall and spring terms and the January Independent Activities Period (IAP).
The Department of Computer Science, University of Toronto invites applications for tenure-stream positions at the rank of Assistant Professor, starting July 1, 2019. Areas of interest include, in the broadest possible sense: Computational Geometry, Mathematical Aspects of Computer Science, Data Science, joint position with the Department of Mathematics.
The project focuses on computational geometry such as visibility problems in the plane (e.g. art gallery problems) and discrete geometric optimization problems in low-dimensional spaces (e.g. clustering problems). Furthermore, problems in discrete geometry can be considered such as questions about geometric intersection graphs.
Six faculty positions, including one focused search in all aspects of Theoretical Computer Science. Department of Computing at Imperial College London has ambitious plans of expansion in all areas, including theory. Academics in the department enjoy a mild teaching load, which is currently up to 1.5 one-term courses per year. Each term amounts to about 10 weeks of teaching.
