     Algorithms Postdoc Position at BRICS, University of Aarhus, Denmark

A postdoctoral position at the level of Research Assistant Professor of
Computer Science is available at BRICS ( at the
Department of Computer Science, University of Aarhus 
(, Denmark. The position, under the supervision 
of Professor Lars Arge (, is in the project
entitled "Algorithms for Processing Massive Datasets: Theory and 
Practice" funded by the Danish National Science Research Council. 
Initially, the position is for one year, starting September 2004 or 
later, but it can be extended for an additional year by mutual consent. 
Applications are welcomed from researchers with clearly demonstrated 
experience and skills in the design and analysis of algorithms and data 
structures. Applicants with experience with external memory, 
cache-oblivious and spatial database algorithms, as well as with 
implementation of such algorithms (algorithms engineering experience), 
will be preferred.

The responsibilities of the candidate include work on external memory 
and cache-oblivious geometric data structures (spatial indexes), as well 
as on external memory algorithms for various problems on massive terrain
models. The candidate is also expected to play a vital role in algorithm
engineering work (including interacting with practitioners), as well as 
in the general development of the TPIE programming environment for 
external memory computation. Modest teaching responsibilities will also 
be expected.

Please send a letter of interest and your CV, as well as at least two 
names of referees for recommendations, by mail or email to:

     Professor Lars Arge
     Department of Computer Science
