Postdoc position in ANR project MAGNUM
The French National Research Agency (ANR) is supporting a four-year
project called “MAGNUM : Algorithmic Methods for Non Uniform Random Generation, Models and
Applications”. Within this project, we offer one or two 12-month postdoctoral research
positions (which could be extended to a duration of 18-24 months). These positions should
start between January 1st, 2012 and January 1st, 2014.
The central theme of the MAGNUM project is the elaboration of complex discrete models that are of broad
applicability in several areas of computer science. A major motivation for the development of such models is
the design and analysis of efficient algorithms dedicated to simulation of large discrete systems and random
generation of large combinatorial structures. Another important motivation is to revisit the area of averagecase
and probabilistic complexity theory under the angle of realistic data models.
The project proposes to develop the general theory of complex discrete models, devise new algorithms for
random generation and simulation, as well as bridge the gap between theoretical analyses and practically
meaningful data models.
