PhD positions in Distributed Algorithms, ETH Zurich, Switzerland

The distributed computing group at the department of information
technology and electrical engineering at ETH Zurich is looking for

Research Assistants / Ph.D. Students in Distributed Algorithms

The distributed computing group is a young research group. Currently
we are ten members. We are interested in a variety of hot topics in
the area of distributed computing, such as distributed algorithms,
peer-to-peer computing, wireless ad hoc or sensor networks, multi-core
systems, or social and mobile networks. In our group we try to apply
and unite the approaches and techniques of algorithmic theory and
systems implementation. Some members of our group focus on algorithms
and analysis, some on systems design and building. All of us work
together to build scalable, fault-tolerant, and efficient primitives
and applications for the distributed future of computing. Please visit
the group web site for more information.

We are looking for new members with a strong algorithmic background,
and a Master's degree in e.g. Computer Science or Mathematics. A
candidate should be attracted by and proficient in areas such as
approximation algorithms, complexity theory, distributed algorithms,
graph theory, online computation, computational geometry,
probabilistic algorithms, combinatorics, or optimization. A new group
member can choose and shape a project according to his or her
interests and talents within the first months of employment.
Successful candidates are expected to work towards a doctoral degree,
and participate in the teaching activities of the group. To get a
better understanding of these open positions, please visit our web
page, and have a look at our theoretical publications, i.e.
publications at conferences such as FOCS, PODC, SPAA, SODA, or STOC.

Additional information about the positions may be obtained on our
website at

Applications must include a CV and a proof of algorithmic interests,
e.g. a student thesis. The research group aims to increase the number
of women in scientific positions. Female candidates are therefore
encouraged to apply. The positions will remain open until suitable
candidates are found and the starting dates may be arranged
individually. We look forward to receiving your application!

Jakarta 10720, Indonesia

1. The buses which goes to Senen Bus Station all of them pass through Gedung Balai Pustaka. Especially which route is through Pasar Baru .

2. Bus Transjakarta, from Blok M you have to change the bus 2-3 times.
Way 1 : from Blok M change the bus in Dukuh Atas bus stop to the bus towards Pulogadung, then take a bus in Pramuka bus stop towards Ancol, this bus pass through Gedung Balai Pustaka. The closest bus stop (Budi Utomo) is about 800 meters from Gedung Balai .
Way 2 : From Blok M take the bus in the Harmoni Bus Stop, the bus towards Pulogadung, get down in Senen Bus Stop and walk about 800 meters, or from this bus stop take the bus towards Ancol and get down as mentioned in way 1. About the distance, this two bus stops is about the same. (It is better if you take ojek or bajaj from this bus stop to Gedung Balai Pustaka)

3. If you take taxi with old tariff (TL=Tarif Lama) from blok M with no traffic jam is about Rp. 30.000,00.

4. From Blok M use bus Patas AC 76. Gedung Balai Pustaka is in the right side, after you pass through Depag, and say to conductor "Balai Pustaka"

5. Use a busway from Blok M towards Kota, get down in Sawah Besar bus stop. From here take a Mikrolet M12 towards Senen. After cross road Wahidin and before senen get down and cross the street.
