A postdoctoral position at the level of Assistant Research Professor is
available starting in September 1999 in the 
Center for Geometric Computing, Department of Computer Science at Duke
University, under the supervision of Profs. Pankaj Agarwal and Jeff Vitter.
Duke is an equal opportunity employer.  The position, which is
contingent upon grant funding, is for one year and can be extended for
one or more additional years by mutual consent.  Applicants must have
clearly demonstrated experience and skills in the design, analysis, and
implementation of combinatorial algorithms, especially in the
area of geometric algorithms. Teaching responsibilities
include one research course per year on a related topic.

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.  (See for more
information on the Center.) 
The problems of interest center around large-scale
geometric computations.  They include development of efficient methods
for the design of geometric data structures, for constructing geometric
configurations, and for geometric visualization.  Issues
involving I/O communication, memory hierarchies, and parallel
models of computation are important.

Apart from pursuing his or her own research interests in geometric
computing, the candidate is expected to play a vital role in 
the center.
Additional responsibilities will include 
interacting with agency scientists and helping prepare contract, technical,
and other reports.  The candidate will interact closely with
geometric computing groups at Brown, Johns Hopkins, and the Army
Research Laboratories.
