NYU faculty positions in circuits, devices, computing systems, and machine learning.

Position in Industrial and Systems Engineering at Rutgers

The Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Rutgers University-New Brunswick invites applications for faculty positions, at all ranks, with a start date of fall 2019.

PhD positions (2) in information theory

There is vacancy for two PhD positions in information theory at the Department of Informatics. The positions are for a fixed-term period of 4 years with 25% compulsory other work (e.g. teaching duties). The workplace is the research center Simula UiB AS. Simula UiB is a research center owned by Simula Research Laboratory and the University of Bergen. The goal of Simula UiB is to increase the security expertise in Norway through research and education. The positions are within the Information Theory Section of Simula UiB. The successful candidates will use advanced information-theoretic and coding-theoretic tools to design new security and privacy schemes and derive fundamental performance bounds for such schemes applied to future distributed information systems. Distributed information systems include, but are not limited to distributing storage systems and distributed computing systems.
