The Distributed Algorithms and Systems Group at IST Austria has two open postdoctoral positions. We are broadly interested in distributed computing and its applications to distributed systems, with a focus on distributed optimization and machine learning.
The positions are part of the ScaleML ERC Starting Grant project, whose goal is to develop new theory, algorithms, and systems for scalable machine learning. The ideal candidate would have a strong background in CS, with a PhD in distributed computing or a related field. Applicants with experience in optimization theory or distributed systems implementation are particularly encouraged, although all strong applicants will be given proper consideration.
For questions about the positions and the application process, please contact [log in to unmask]. The application should contain a CV, publication list, a 1-page statement describing motivation and research interests, and links to your top two or three publications.
