Job Description: 


Applications from well-qualified candidates are sought for one or more postdoctoral research associate positions in the School of Computational Science and Engineering within the College of Computing at Georgia Institute of Technology. The positions are in the group led by Prof. Srinivas Aluru. We are an interdisciplinary research group in parallel and high performance computing focusing on applications-driven algorithmic research, primarily in the area of bioinformatics and systems biology. Required qualifications include an earned Ph.D. degree in computer science or in an equivalent discipline (computer engineering, computational science/engineering, bioinformatics, etc.), and a good publication record in high quality journals and conferences. Our group has a diverse research agenda and draws upon expertise in several areas. Successful candidates will have a strong background and expertise in one or more of the following areas:

  1. Parallel algorithms – scalable distributed memory algorithms, combinatorial algorithms, parallel graph algorithms, data intensive computing.
  2. Bioinformatics – next generation sequencing, metagenomics, biological networks, precision medicine. Emphasis lies on ability to design new algorithms, not on using existing tools to study biology.
  3. Knowledge and capability to exploit modern processors and co-processors – in particular, Xeon, Xeon Phi, and GPUs.

Postdoctoral research associate positions are suitable for candidates with recent Ph.D. degrees who are interested in a full time research position to further their research portfolio for more permanent positions.

Application Procedure: To apply, please send your application (cover letter, CV, and 2-3 reference letters) via email to Arlene Washington at The positions remain open until suitable candidates are found.
