Fixed term contract for 2 years, 36.5 hours per week.
A Postdoctoral Research Fellow position in the area of the dynamic algorithms is available for 2 years. The start date can be negotiated for the successful candidate.
The position is available in connection with an EPSRC research grant of Dr Sayan Bhattacharya on the theory and applications of dynamic algorithms. The primary focus in this research area is to design algorithms that can efficiently maintain (approximately) optimal solutions to classical optimisation problems in a scenario where the input data keeps changing with time. The main objective of the post is to pursue cutting-edge research in this area.
You will need to have a strong background in theoretical computer science, with a specialization either in dynamic algorithms or in related areas such as approximation, online, distributed, streaming and FPT algorithms.
You will need to have (or expect to obtain shortly) a PhD in the relevant area.
You should provide with your application form a CV, including a list of publications and the names and contact details of three references, and a research statement.
You will be formally based in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Warwick, and you will be associated with the Centre for Discrete Mathematics and its Applications (http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/cross_fac/dimap) and the Division of Theory and Foundations at the University of Warwick. For further information, please contact Dr Sayan Bhattacharya (https://www.dcs.warwick.ac.uk/~u1671158/).
Closing Date: 6 October 2019.
