Research Opportunities (email me your CV and transcripts to apply)

  • Opening for post-docs: I am actively recruiting post-docs in the area of distributed computing and algorithms in networking. The appointees are expected to work on issues related to distributed computing and algorithms in networking. The starting date is negotiable, and ideally should be by the end of 2015. The salary is internationally competitive (compared to Europe and US). Please email me to apply.

  • Opening for research interns: Subject to the final approval of funding, I am recruiting research interns for 2015. The interns are expected to work on issues related to distributed computing and algorithms in networking. To qualify, the applicant needs to be a top undergraduate student in a top university, with a strong academic track record. I particularly welcome internship applicants with achievements in Mathematics/Physics/Information Olympiad at the national or international level. Please email me to apply.

  • Opening for Ph.D. students seeking advisors: I am actively recruiting Ph.D. students to collaborate on world-class research on distributed algorithms and network algorithms. Besides CS major students, I am also very interested in working with students with a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics. Students with Bachelor's degrees in other related areas (such as Physics) and with strong mathematical background are also very welcome.

    If you are considering being my student, please read Advisor's README first and then email me to set up a time to chat.
