    CALL FOR POST-DOC POSITIONS IN DISTRIBUTED COMPUTING AND DISTRIBUTED SYSTEMS


In the context of Web-Alter-Ego, a new project just awarded by Google to INRIA (ASAP team in Rennes) and EPFL (LPD team in Lausanne), post-doc positions in distributed computing and distributed systems are available for several years.

Web-Alter-Ego addresses the problem of extracting the alter-egos of a Web user, namely profiles of like-minded  users  who share similar  interests, across various Internet-oriented applications, in real time and in the presence of high dynamics. Beyond their intrinsic social interest, the profiles of alter-egos of a user are crucial to identify a personalized  slice  of the Internet that can be leveraged to personalize the Web navigation of that user,  from recommendation to browsing and search. More specifically, the aim of the project is to design and formalize a generic architecture of a Web-Alter-Ego service that can run on  various devices and use, as well be used for, various web applications. The challenges underlying identifying Web-Alter-Egos include privacy and scalability.

APPLICATIONS :
The candidates should have a PhD in computer science with a
strong background either in theoretical distributed computing or distributed
systems. Applications should contain :
- a curriculum vitae  and
- the name and contact information of two reference persons.

The SUBMISSION DEADLINE is June 15, 2013
To send your application or ask for additional information, please send
an email to both following addresses :
[log in to unmask] or [log in to unmask]

Practical Information :
The position is at least for two years and the location of the position will be either Lausanne or Rennes, to be
discussed with the applicant.
