2 Postdoctoral Researcher/Visiting Assistant Professor Positions

So you want to become a research leader at a research university or lab? The Distributed Programming Group at Purdue University has two open postdoctoral researcher positions in networks and distributed systems, effective immediately, that allow you to showcase your abilities. Positions are for 2 years with possibility of extension.


The postdoctoral positions involve a number of projects funded by/in collaboration with various partners (e.g., NSF, DARPA, Google, Cisco, Northrop Grumman, NetApp, HP Labs, IBM Research, TU Darmstadt). Examples are: Candidates will have the possibility to set their priorities between supervising of students in these projects, and proposing new projects. In addition, if a candidate is willing to teach a class in distributed systems (other topics may be possible too) in 1 out of 2 semesters, the position can be upgraded to a visiting assistant professor position, which entails higher salary and other benefits.




The Distributed Programming Group at Purdue University conducts research mainly in the areas of networked distributed systems, middleware, and programming languages and models for distributed systems. Former group members have gone on to successful researcher careers (e.g., at HP Labs, IBM Research, Samsung Research, IMDEA Networks). The department offers a wealth of training opportunities for postdoctoral researchers. The position also includes ample opportunities for co-advising graduate students and co-authoring grant proposals.

Positions last two years with possibility of extension in case of successful collaboration. Compensation is competitive.

Prospective candidates are requested to send an email containing a 1-page research statement, a CV, and 3 references. Application screening will start immediately and continue until the positions are filled.
