CSjob: PostDoc, Novel Algorithms and Signal Processing, ASTRON & IBM, The Netherlands

Paul just sent me the following:

Hi Igor,

Thanks for last time when you posted our job advertisement ..... We have another post-doc opening (details below) working on signal processing, and based at ASTRON in the Netherlands. Would you mind sharing it via nuit blanche?

All the best,

In 2012, we opened the ASTRON & IBM Center for Exascale Technology, which will address challenges of the new computer era. The research centre is located in Dwingeloo, Drenthe on the Campus of the Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy (ASTRON). Under the umbrella of the DOME project, IBM and ASTRON jointly carry out fundamental research into exascale computing technologies needed to develop the SKA radio telescope. The collaboration focuses on three main areas:
  • Sustainable Computing (extreme performance at minor energy costs) 
  • Nano-photonics (data transport power reduction over short and long distances) 
  • Data & Streaming (real time processing of massive data amounts).

We have an 18 month post-doc opening in the novel algorithms and signal processing area at the ASTRON & IBM Center for Exascale Technology in Dwingeloo, The Netherlands, working closely together with the team at IBM Research in Zurich, Switzerland. The project has already made exciting strides in holistically re-envisaging the interferometer from acquisition to image, developing and testing signal processing algorithms which cut across the entire radio astronomy chain. The research spans the themes of filter banks, beamforming, finite rate of innovation, stochastic processes, linear algebra, compressed sensing, and array signal processing.

For more information concerning the position, please contact: Paul Hurley - pah@zurich.ibm.com

Our offer: 18 months, starting as soon as possible.

Resource requirement:
We are looking for an enthusiastic and gifted researcher to strengthen our team. The candidate should have a PhD, or be about to finish one, in either mathematical signal processing, applied mathematics, radio astronomy or related discipline, together with excellent scientific publication and mathematical ability. The candidate should be able to work independently and in an international cross-border team. Knowledge of Matlab and C/C++ would also be advantageous.

Thanks Paul !
