Two postdocs: UC Davis Math, EPFL

Thomas Strohmer just sent me the following:

Dear Igor,
Would you be so kind and announce the postdoc position described below on your Nuit Blanche blog?
best regards,
Sure Thomas!

The Department of Mathematics at the University of California, Davis, is soliciting applications for a Postdoctoral Scholar position with a starting date between March 2014 and October 2014.
To be considered for the Postdoctoral Scholar position, the Department seeks applicants with a strong knowledge base in Sparse Approximations, Compressive Sensing, Numerical Algorithms and/or Optimization. A Ph.D. in Mathematics or the equivalent is required by August 31, 2014. The position requires working on research related to a defense-based project (sponsored by DTRA/NSF), led by Professor Thomas Strohmer. The research is concerned with developing theory and algorithms for phase retrieval, hyper spectral imaging, and signal recovery in connection with threat detection. The candidate should also have excellent programming skills in Matlab. The annual salary of this position is $60,000, plus some travel funds. The position carries no teaching duties the first two years, but teaching may be possible upon request. The third year may be a 9-month position with 50% teaching and 50% research. The appointment is renewable for a total of up to three years, assuming satisfactory performance. The UC Davis Math and Applied Math programs have been ranked among the nation’s top programs by the National Research Council in its most recent report. Additional information about the Department may be found at https://www.math.ucdavis.edu/. Our postal address is Department of Mathematics, University of California, One Shields Avenue, Davis, CA 95616-8633. Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled. To guarantee full consideration, the application should be received by December 15, 2013 by submitting the AMS Cover Sheet and supporting documentation electronically through http://www.mathjobs.org/. The University of California is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.

Subject: Postdoc Positions, Lab for Information & Inference Systems, EPFL 
The Laboratory for Information and Inference Systems(http://lions.epfl.ch/) at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) has multiple openings for energetic postdoctoral fellows in thebroad fields of Applied Mathematics, Theoretical Computer Science, and Statistics as part of Prof. Volkan Cevher's 5-year European Research Council project.
Our lab provides a fun, collaborative research environment with state-of-the-art facilities at EPFL, one of the leading technical universities worldwide. EPFL is located in Lausanne next to Lake Geneva in a scenic setting.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to Analysis and design of advanced convex and non-convex optimization methods with applications to inverse problems; Analysis and design of advanced discrete optimization methods with particular emphasis on sublinear, submodular, and approximation algorithms; Learning theory and methods for non-parametric, sparse additive models; Encoder design for compressive and adaptive measurement schemes, including information extractors (e.g., polar codes) and expanders; Advanced linear algebra methods for optimized information extraction from very large dimensional datasets; Analysis and applications of non-iid probabilistic models.
Applicants are expected to have finished, or are about to finish their Ph.D. degrees. They must have an exceptional background at least in one of the following topics: numerical convex optimization, combinatorial optimization, statistics, coding theory, and algorithms.A track record of relevant publications at top applied mathematics,theoretical computer science, statistics, or engineering journals or conferences is essential. The working language at EPFL is English.
Starting date: available immediately
For informal enquiries, please contact Bubacarr Bah,bubacarr.bah@epfl.ch
The application letter including a curriculum vitae with a list of publications, statement of research, contact details for 3 references should be sent via email to Gosia Baltaian gosia.baltaian@epfl.ch
