The research groups of Jukka Suomela and Jara Uitto at Aalto University (Helsinki, Finland) are 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 groups are now looking for several postdoctoral researchers and/or doctoral students to work on the foundations of distributed and parallel computing. The candidates are funded by the following research projects supported by the Academy of Finland:

“Local Checking, Solving, and Mending—New Perspectives on Distributed Computing”

“Massively Parallel Algorithms for Large-Scale Graph Problems”

“Parallel and distributed computing for Bayesian graphical models”.

The candidates for the postdoctoral researcher positions 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 3660 and 3840 EUR per month depending on experience and qualifications. These are fixed-term contracts typically for 1–2 years.

The candidates for the doctoral student positions are expected to have a Master's degree and a good command of English. The starting salary for the position is 2537 EUR per month. The expected length of the doctoral studies in Finland is 4 years.

The starting dates of the contracts are also 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.

To apply for the positions, please send an email to both [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> and [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> by the end of August 2020. Your application should be a single PDF file that contains a cover letter, your CV and list of publications, a brief research statement, and the relevant transcripts of studies and certificates of the degrees. Please also ask two or three senior academics to send their recommendation letters to the same email addresses, by the same deadline. While all applicants who have submitted an application by the deadline will be appropriately considered, Aalto University reserves the right to consider also other candidates for the announced positions.
