Postdoc and PhD Positions in Coding Theory for Distributed Systems at Bar-Ilan University (Israel)

Jump to other IT Society Websites:
A postdoctoral position and a PhD position are open in the coding group in the faculty of engineering at Bar-Ilan University, hosted by Dr. Ran Gelles.

The positions  involve performing theoretical research in coding theory
focusing mainly on:

  • coding over networks
  • coding in interactive settings
  • applications to secure coding over networks 
  • reliability of computations in noisy environments.

The postdoctoral position is for 1 year and can be extended by an additional year
contingent upon funding and satisfactory performance.

The PhD position is for the entire course of a PhD degree, with an expected duration of 4 years.

Applicants should ideally have background in coding theory, information theory, and algorithms,
be highly motivated and mathematically capable.

Applications should include

  1. a CV with a list of publications, 
  2. a short research statement,  
  3. names and contact information of 2–3 potential references.

Applications should be emailed to ran.gelles@biu.ac.il
