Jump to other IT Society Websites:
A postdoctoral research position in the field of information theory is now available in the Department of Electrical Engineering - Systems at Tel Aviv University, Israel. Starting in October 2017 (or later) for up to two years. Funded by the European Research Council (ERC).

We offer one postdoctoral fellowship for researchers in the broad area of information theory, with special emphasis on interactive communications. Specific topics of interest include communications with noisy feedback, iterative-refinement coding for two-way channels, interactive coding and its relations to dynamical systems and stochastic control, resource-limited interactive communications, distributed function computation, and combinatorial aspects of communications. The research will be conducted in collaboration with Prof. Ofer Shayevitz and his group, and is funded by a grant from the European Research Council (ERC). 

The position is available starting October 2017 or later, for a period of up to two years. Applicants should hold a PhD in either electrical engineering, computer science, or mathematics, and are expected to have a strong background in information theory or closely related fields. Remuneration is highly competitive and commensurate with skills and track record. To apply, please send your CV along with a short statement of research interests to Prof. Ofer Shayevitz at
