Postdoc position in computational geometry at The University of Sydney

by , under Positions

We are advertising a 2 years (1+1) postdoctoral research fellowship in
computational geometry at University of Sydney, Australia.
Expected start date is the 1st of October 2018 (can be negotiated).

The successful applicant will conduct research with Joachim Gudmundsson
and André van Renssen in the Sydney Algorithms and Computing Theory
(SACT) group. The aim will be to design effective algorithms and data
structures in the area of computational movement analysis (funded by the
Australian Research Council).

Collaboration with other members of the SACT group is encouraged.
The SACT group at USyd currently includes Julián Mestre, Lijun Chang,
André van Renssen, William Umboh and Joachim Gudmundsson.

We are looking for outstanding PhD graduates (expected to have a PhD by
the start date) with a track record in the field of algorithms and data
structures, ideally with an emphasis on computational geometry. Experience
in experimental algorithmics is an advantage but not essential.

Salary Package: AUD 90,276 – AUD 96,905 pa plus superannuation

Please send applications by email to, including:
– a letter of application,
– a research statement, and
