Postdocs in the theory of distributed & parallel computing
The research group of Jukka Suomela at Aalto University (Helsinki, Finland) is among the leading research groups in the areas of theory of distributed and parallel computing. Our work frequently appears in the top conferences of the field, and we have received a number of awards, e.g. the best paper award at FOCS 2019.
Our research group is now looking for postdoctoral researchers to work on the foundations of distributed and parallel computing, in the project "Limits of Causal Computation" funded by the Research Council of Finland. The candidates are expected to have a doctoral degree and relevant publications in leading conferences or journals. A good command of English is necessary. In addition to research work, postdocs participate in the supervision of students and teaching. The salary for the position is between 3942.55 and 4118.93 EUR per month depending on experience and qualifications. These are fixed-term contracts typically for 1–2 years.
The starting dates of the contracts are negotiable, and we can offer flexible terms of employment. In addition to the salary, the contracts include occupational health benefits. Finland has a comprehensive social security system and is particularly suitable for families. Diversity is part of who we are, and we actively work to ensure our community's diversity and inclusiveness in the future as well; this is why we warmly encourage qualified candidates from all backgrounds to join our community.
