Tenure track and postdoctoral positions in Computer Science at CIMAT, Guanajuato, Mexico
The Centro de Investigación en Matemáticas (Mathematical Research Center - CIMAT) invites applications for a tenure track position and two postdoctoral positions in its Computer Science Department.
CIMAT is a federal research center in Pure and Applied Mathematics, Probability, Statistics, and Computer Science, and depends on the National Council of Science and Technology of Mexico (CONACYT). Its main office is in the city of Guanajuato, a quiet, colourful UNESCO world heritage site in central Mexico.
The Computer Science Department has 17 full-time researchers working in numerical methods, optimization, parallel computing, robotics and automatic control, signal and image processing, machine learning and statistical pattern recognition, and multimedia transmission. The department builds upon a solid research infrastructure, an extensive network of collaboration and international visibility. It is embedded in the rich academic life of CIMAT with visitors and specialized academic events all year round. The department’s postgraduate program is one of the leading programs in Computer Science in Mexico. It is also involved in consultancy and software development.
The tenure track position is aimed for researchers working on state of the art topics in Computational Mathematics or Computer Science in general, with the potential to become leaders in their specialty fields. This position can also be used for visiting researchers as part of a sabbatical leave. The postdoctoral positions are aimed for young researchers at the beginning of their research career with a solid background in Computational Mathematics.
The starting date of the postdoctoral positions is January 2018 (or shortly after), and the duration for them is up to 16 months. The tenure track position can start at any time in 2018.
Applications will be accepted and reviewed until the available positions are given. The first selection round will start on October 12th, 2017 (postdoctoral positions) and November 10th, 2017 (tenure track position).
