The Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing is an exciting new
venue for collaborative research
in theoretical computer science and related fields. The Institute will
be housed in a dedicated building
on the UC Berkeley campus, and will act as a vibrant and welcoming
environment for visiting researchers.
In each academic semester the activities of the Institutes are largely
focused on specific research programs,
each of which attracts thirty to forty participants ranging from
senior scientists to graduate students.
The Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing was created in 2012
through a ten-year grant
from the Simons Foundation (more information can be found at
http://simons.berkeley.edu).

The joint postdoctoral position would start in the Fall 2013.
The joint post-doctoral fellow will first spend a semester (Fall 2013)
at the Simons Institute,
and then will continue at the I-Core in Algorithms for the remainder
of the academic year.

The topics of the research programs for Fall 2013 in the Simons Institute are
Real Analysis in Computer Science" and "Theoretical Foundations of Big
Data Analysis."

The topics of research in I-CORE in Algorithms include (but are not
limited to):
all variety of algorithms (optimization, online, streaming,
approximation, randomized, geometric and more),
cryptography, security and privacy, algorithmic game theory, quantum computing,
networking and distributed computing, databases, machine learning and
computer vision

(The research interests of potential candidates should match the
research interests of both institutions).

Salaries and benefits are competitive and assistance with visas and
housing will be provided.
We particularly encourage applications from outstanding women and
minority candidates.
In addition, the I-CORE in Algorithm would provide some support to
travel to and from Israel.

Leonardo Fibonacci fellowships - a joint postdoctoral program of
I-CORE Algo, CNR and ENEA
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I-CORE Algo  the Israeli Center of Research Excellence in algorithms,
CNR  the National Research Council of Italy and ENEA  the Italian
National agency for new technologies,
Energy and sustainable economic development are seeking excellent
candidates for postdoctoral fellowships.

The joint program is supported by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs,
and one of its objectives is strengthening the bi-national cooperation in
science and technology between Italy and Israel, under the auspices of the
Italian-Israeli Agreement on Industrial, Scientific and Technological
Cooperation.
CNR and ENEA participate in the program to help open new paths towards
excellence for young researchers,
some of whom will eventually join the Italian research system.

The Leonardo Fibonacci fellowships are named after the Italian
mathematician Leonardo Fibonacci,
arguably the greatest European mathematician of the middle ages.

The Fellowships will be awarded initially for a period of up to twelve
months, and they may be prolonged,
after consideration, within the same program or other programs of the
I-CORE center.

The Leonardo Fibonacci fellows will perform their postdoctoral
research in one of the I-CORE in Algorithms institutions.
Salaries and benefits are competitive and assistance with visas and
housing will be provided.

The selection Committee (3 members, from the CNR, the I-CORE in
Algorithms and the Embassy of Italy in Israel)
will choose between applicants, on the basis of the above criteria.

The selected candidates will submit a brief activity report to the
Committee every three months.

RESEARCH SCOPE:
