2018 Post-Doctoral Researcher Opening (distributed algorithms and 
distributed computing) in School of Computing, National University of 
Singapore (NUS), Republic of Singapore (http://www.comp.nus.edu.sg/)

Background on NUS and Singapore:

According to QS World University Rankings 2012, NUS ranks 9th worldwide in 
Computer Science and Information Systems. NUS School of Computing has 
around 80 faculty members and constantly publishes in top venues, with 
some highlight publications such as Best Paper in SIGCOMM and STOC.

Singapore is an English-speaking developed country, whose per capita GDP 
ranks among top 5 in the world. Living cost is quite reasonable (unless 
you want to buy a house or a car), and Singapore has an exceptionally good 
public transportation system. The crime rate in Singapore is one of the 
lowest in the world.

Details of the Position:

An opening is available for the position of Research Fellow (post-doctoral 
researcher) in the area of distributed algorithms and distributed 
computing. The appointee is expected to work closely with Associate Prof. 
YU Haifeng (http://www.comp.nus.edu.sg/~yuhf) and his research team on 
issues related to distributed algorithms and distributed computing. The 
most important goal of the research will be to produce high-impact 
academic publications in the very best conferences (such as PODC and 
SIGCOMM) and journals (such as JACM and Transactions on Networking) in the 
area. The duration is negotiable, but ideally at least 1 year (multiple 
years possible). The starting date is negotiable, and ideally should be no 
later than the end of 2018. The salary is generous and is internationally 
competitive (compared to the US).
