Three postdoc positions in Computer Science at the Gran Sasso Science Institute, L'Aquila

I  have been asked to advertise three postdoc positions in Computer Science that are available at the Gran Sasso Science Institute in L'Aquila, Italy. The  deadline for application is the 2nd of February. I trust that these positions might be of interest to some of the readers of this blog. 

The Gran Sasso Science Institute currently hosts a little under 20 PhD students in Computer Science and there will be about ten more joining the institute in November 2015. The PhD students from there with whom I have had the pleasure to interact are highly motivated and have good potential. The successful applicants will have a good chance to get some of them involved in their own research. 

L'Aquila lies in my home region, Abruzzo, and  is surrounded by beautiful mountains, national parks and many historical sites. 

The Gran Sasso Science Institute (GSSI - http://www.gssi.infn.it/), a recently established international PhD school and a Center for advanced studies in L'Aquila (ITALY) offers 12 postdoctoral research positions. Three of these positions are dedicated to Computer Science and more specifically to themes that are strongly connected to the pillars of the PhD program in Computer Science (http://cs.gssi.infn.it), namely:

 * Foundations of social and computer networks
 * Software systems and services
 * Specifications and analysis of concurrent reactive systems

Apart from pursuing their own research agenda, the successful candidates will have the opportunity to take part in the supervision of the roughly 20 PhD students in Computer Science and to cooperate with members of the research group and of the Scientific Board (http://cs.gssi.infn.it/phd-program/information/), as well as with the frequent guests of the institute.

The deadline for application is:

*February 2, 2015 at 6:00 pm (Rome time)*

The annual gross salary is EURO 40K and lunch tickets are provided for working days. The positions are for two years. Candidates must have earned their doctoral degree not earlier than  January 1, 2008.

Selected candidates are expected to start their appointments not later than *September**1st, 2015. *

For information see http://www.gssi.infn.it/postdoc/ and http://www.gssi.infn.it/postdoc//doc01856420141216105324.pdf

For any further information feel free to contact Rocco De Nicola (rocco.denicola@imtlucca.it rocco.denicola@imtlucca.it
