***   One-year post-doctoral position announcement   ***

A 12-month postdoctoral position is available at the INRIA/LIP6/UPMC SALSA
team on Campus Jussieu (located in the "Quartier Latin" of Paris, France).
We are seeking candidates to apply for this position. The postdoc will work
in the joint ANR/NSFC EXACTA project on polynomial system solving and its
applications in cryptography, computational geometry, and biology.

***   Scientific context   ***

The joint ANR/NSFC EXACTA Project aims at developing algorithms for solving
polynomial systems with a focus on applications in computational geometry,
algebraic cryptanalysis, global optimization and algebraic biology using
exact symbolic computation and/or certifies numeric computation. Among the
topics adressed in this project, one can mention Grobner bases, triangular
sets, cylindrical algebraic decomposition, sums of squares, etc.

Outstanding candidates within any field of Computer Algebra related to
polynomial system solving will be considered.

In algebraic cryptanalysis, topics of interests include: multivariate
cryptography, symmetric primitives, error-correcting codes, small roots of
algebraic systems. The list is not exhaustive.  In computational geometry,
topics of interests include: topology determination of curves and surfaces,
dynamic geometric constraint solving, Voronoi diagrams of 3d-objects. The
list is not exhaustive.

Some detailed (but not restrictive) topics of interest are described at the
following URL:

***   Requirements   ***

The applicants should hold a PhD.  We are especially interested in
candidates with background in one or several of the following fields:
- polynomial system solving
- algebraic techniques in computational geometry
- algebraic techniques in cryptanalysis
- certified numeric computations

***    Application Procedure   ***

Application deadline: June, 5 2010.
Applications should be sent exclusively by email, to the addresses
Dongming.Wang en lip6.fr and Mohab.Safey en lip6.fr preferably with the subject
containing the words "EXACTA Postdoc Application".

The application must include:
1. a detailed resume;
2. a short research project (1 page);
3. contact information of two possible references.

Applications are currently open.  Potentially interested candidates are
invited to contact us as soon as possible.

The starting date of the postdoc will be preferably October, 1st but can be
