A postdoctoral position at the level of Visiting Assistant Professor
of Computer Science is available in the Department of Computer Science
at Duke University, under the supervision of Prof. Jeff Vitter.
Duke is an equal opportunity employer.  The position is for one year
and can be extended for additional years by mutual consent.
Applicants must have clearly demonstrated experience and skills in
systems development.  Familiarity with external memory algorithms and
database algorithms is a definite plus.  Teaching responsibilities
include one research seminar per year if desired. 

The position will include membership in the Center for Geometric
Computing, a collaborative effort funded by the Army Research Office
with participation from researchers at Brown, Duke, and Johns Hopkins
Universities.  The problems of interest center around high-performance
geometric computations.  They include development of efficient methods
for spatial databases and geographic information systems, especially
those dealing with massive amounts of data.

The candidate is expected to play a vital role in the development
and/or use of the TPIE programming environment for external memory
computation (  Issues involving memory
hierarchies and parallel communication will also be considered.
Additional responsibilities will be to interact with agency scientists
and to help prepare contract, technical, and other reports.
The candidate will interact closely with geometric computing 
groups at Brown, Johns Hopkins, and the Army Research Laboratories.
