Center for Massive Data Algorithmics (MADALGO), is a basic research center funded by the Danish National Research Foundation. The center is located in the Department of Computer Science, Aarhus University, Denmark, but also includes researchers at CSAIL, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics and at Frankfurt University. The center covers all areas of the design, analysis and implementation of algorithms and data structures for processing massive data (interpreted broadly to cover computations where data is large compared to the computational resources), with focus on I/O-efficient, cache-oblivious and streaming algorithms. The center also emphasizes work on the boundary between the algorithms and database areas, in particular work in relation to efficient indexing and query and update processing. See www.madalgo.au.dk for more information.
Starting August 1, 2013 or later, several positions are available at MADALGO under the supervision of Professor Lars Arge (www.madalgo.au.dk/~large), Professor Christian S. Jensen (www.cs.au.dk/~csj) and Associate Professor Gerth S. Brodal (www.madalgo.au.dk/~gerth):
Several PhD student positions are available. The positions are administered through Graduate School of Science and Technology at Aarhus University (talent.au.dk/phd/scienceandtechnology) and include full tuition waiver and a very competitive scholarship. Applications are welcomed from students with at least three years of full-time study by August 2013. Students with a strong background in the design and analysis of algorithms will be preferred. Students with background in databases and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are also very welcome to apply.
One or more MADALGO postdoc positions at the level of Research Assistant Professor of Computer Science may be available. Postdoc positions are initially for one year, but can be extended with an additional year by mutual consent. MADALGO welcomes postdoctoral researchers with clearly demonstrated experience and skills in the design and analysis of algorithms and data structures. Researchers with experience with I/O-efficient, cache-oblivious or streaming algorithms, as well as with implementation of such algorithms (algorithm engineering experience), or with experience in design and implementation of database indexing structures, are preferred. The responsibilities of MADALGO postdocs include work on algorithms for massive dataset problems in collaboration with center researchers, along with modest teaching responsibilities.
The application deadline for both PhD student and postdoc positions is May 1, 2013. Applicants for PhD student positions should apply using the Aarhus Graduate School of Science and Technology application system also accessible from www.madalgo.au.dk. Applicants for postdoc positions should apply by uploading a letter of interest and a CV, as well as indicate at least two names of references for recommendations, using the application form available at www.madalgo.au.dk.
