One postdoc position within the ERC Advanced Grant project “Algorithmic and Mechanism Design Research in Online Markets” (AMDROMA) led by Stefano Leonardi is available at Sapienza University of Rome.
The project AMDROMA considers research questions in algorithms and mechanism design that are central for large-scale online markets. The focus of the work will be on the development of new algorithmic data analysis methods for online and streaming computation in clustering and matching. The project also intends to apply these new methods to provide algorithmic solutions for online market applications under various constraints such as fairness, privacy, truthfulness, etc. The research will focus on theoretical investigation, data driven modeling, and experimental validation.
The research work will be carried on under the supervision of Prof. Stefano Leonardi and Dr. Chris Schwiegelshohn.
Postdocs of AMDROMA are expected to contribute in defining research problems of interest of the project, finding and analyzing novel solutions, writing research papers, and collaborating with PhD students and other postdoctoral researchers. Applicants should hold a PhD or be close to complete a PhD in computer science, computer engineering, or related fields.
There are two levels for the position: Junior and Senior Postdoctoral Researcher. Fresh PhDs will be considered for the first level and everybody else for both levels.
The position can start as soon as possible. The position can be extended up to three years. Salary is competitive at the European level.
Applications including a CV and a statement of research should be sent to
