Position Title: Algorithms and CS Theory - Postdoc and Ph.D. positions
Position Type: Postdoctoral
Position Location: Ramat Gan, 5290002, Israel [map] sort by distance

Application Deadline: (posted 2023/08/31, listed until 2024/06/30)
Position Description:    

Professor Ely Porat is recruiting postdoctoral researchers and Ph.D. students for the Theory and Algorithms Group at the Computer Science Department of Bar-Ilan university in Ramat Gan, Israel.

The main fields of the group research are algorithms, data structures, pattern matching and streaming algorithms.

The group is partially funded by an ERC Grant (MPM 683064) and other competitive grants, hence, Prof. Porat can provide suitable students with generous scholarships.

For postdoctoral researchers, we are looking for researchers in a mature stage of their academic capabilities, with a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science or Mathematics and with a strong publication record in Theoretical Computer Science. Our threshold for applicants is at least three papers accepted to top tier conferences (e.g. STOC, FOCS or SODA). The positions will be for at least one year (preferably two years of advance commitment) with the possibility of extension.

For Ph.D. programs we require students with M.Sc. Degree in Computer Science or related field which has at least one publication in an international peer reviewed conference or journal.

For both kinds of positions (Ph.D. students and postdoctoral researchers) there's a possibility to start at any stage of the year (any synchronization with academic years is not necessary). Researchers and graduate students that will be accepted to the group may pursue their own line of interest but a focus related to the existing research areas of the group is very encouraged.

Please send your application (including a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, and the names and contact information of at least two references) to Please attach relevant documents as pdf files.
