Postdoc position in Coding Theory and Finite Geometries


            Two Pos-Doc positions are offered at the Mathematics Department, at University of CampinasUnicamp, Brazil, for young researchers in Coding Theory and Discrete Geometries.

University 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.

The grants are offered by Prof. Marcelo Firer (mfirer@ime.unicamp.br), 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], [2011], [2009].


The 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.


Candidates should send a short Working Project (at most 4 pages) including the following items: 1) Title; 2) Name of the program supervisor; 3) Institution (IMECC – UNICAMP); 4) Abstract; 5) Description of Research Goals; 6) Working plan including working schedules and expected results. Beside the Working Project candidates must send a detailed curriculum. Candidates may send also complementary documentation, including copies of published and submitted papers, a detailed research project, recommendation letters and any other document that the applicant believes that may enhance his application.


Candidates must send all documents, until February 28th, 2014, to Marcelo Firer, to the email mfirer@ime.unicamp.br. Questions are welcome.


This position is supported by FAPESP – the research agency of state of São Paulo, within a larger project that involves researchers in Error Correcting Codes, Cryptography and Discrete Math, from the institutes of Mathematics, Computer Science and Electrical Engineers of UNICAMP.
