Two Pos-Doc positions are offered at the Mathematics
Department, at University of Campinas
– Unicamp, Brazil, for young researchers in Coding
Theory and Discrete Geometries.
of Campinas is one of the leading universities in Brazil and the
Mathematics Department is one of the leading departments in Latin America,
with a strong graduate program.
grants are offered by Prof. Marcelo Firer (firstname.lastname@example.org), who is currently
interested in research in coding theory in spaces endowed with poset metrics, in the relation between metric and
probabilistic decoding criteria and possible applications using unequal
error protection. Representative recent works on those subjects may be
found here: [2014-A], [2014-B], [2013-A], [2013-B], , .
position includes a monthly grant of R$ 6,143.40 (Brazilian Reais, equivalent to US$ 2.450, approximately,
tax-free), air-tickets for the researcher, an additional payment in the first
month to cover moving expenses and an additional of 15% of his/her
monthly stipend that can be used to support research activities
(acquisition of equipment, books, participation in conference and so on).
The position is offered for two years.
