- Algorithms for Distributed Systems
- Operations Research
- Algorithmic Game Theory
- Models for Continuous Time Computations
- Constraint Satisfaction Problems
Further information about the research teams at LIX can be found at http://www.lix.polytechnique.fr/
The LIX-Qualcomm postdoctoral fellowship provides young scientists of outstanding quality an opportunity to advance their academic career as resident research fellows in one of these research teams. The fellow is free to continue his/her own research, however expected to identify and integrate with a LIX research team in his/her area of interest. Applicants are strongly encouraged to make contact with staff researchers in their team(s) of research in advance, before submitting their application. Applicants should clearly identify the team(s) they would like to join, and the researcher(s) that they would like to collaborate with, in their application documents.
The fellowship will be for one year, with an opportunity for a fellow to present candidature for renewal for one additional year. The fellowship is supported by a competitive stipend. Applicants must have received a PhD degree after January 2012 or should expect to receive one before the fellowship commences in fall 2013. Candidates with PhDs awarded in 2011 or earlier will not be eligible.
Applications will be accepted until Friday May 31, 2013, and must be submitted on-line.
