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.
