Moin moin,

Our group (where I am doing my PhD) is currently looking for PhD or Postdoc
candidates. Our research spans an extremely wide area from math/theoretical
computer science to low noise electronics and ASICs. One of our main focus
is fault-tolerant clock synchronization in the low ps level. We would
like to especially encourage people with a solid background in
electrical/electronics engineering to apply. Even more so, if you know
how to deal with precision time and frequency generation and/or measurement. 

On a personal note: because our research is on such a wide field, you
are free to pursue your own research and are encouraged to do so, as
long as it fits somehow within the general topic (which is not hard at all).

If you have questions, feel free to contact either Christoph or me

Subject: Ph.D. and Postdoc Positions at MPI for Informatics, Saarbrücken, Germany

The Theory of Distributed and Embedded Systems group
) in the Department for Algorithms & Complexity of the MPI for
Informatics invites Ph.D. and Postdoc applications. Our research spans
a broad range. At one end of the spectrum, we are interested in all
aspects of the theory of distributed systems. At the other end, we
apply these principles in the development of fault-tolerant hardware,
including FPGA and analog/mixed-signal ASIC prototypes. Accordingly, we
welcome all applicants with a background in computer science,
electrical engineering, mathematics, computer engineering, or related

Successful applicants will take part in an ERC Starting Grant project,
which has the ambitious goal of devising highly robust, yet efficient
systems that do not rely on centralized clocking methods. The teaching
load is low and there is room to explore other research avenues;
especially postdocs are encouraged to follow their own research agenda
next to the ERC project.

For informal inquiries as well as filing an application, please send me
an email (clenzen at mpi-inf.mpg.de). A typical application should contain
your CV, publication list, a brief statement (up to about one page) of
your motivation and research interests, and your two most interesting
publications (links suffice).

The Max Planck Society is committed to employing more individuals with
disabilities and expressly welcomes these to apply. The Max Planck
Society seeks to increase the percentage of women in the areas where
they are underrepresented and expressly encourages these to apply.

It is upon moral qualities that a society is ultimately founded. All 
the prosperity and technological sophistication in the world is of no 
use without that foundation.
