Eight postdocs in computer science, Tallinn/Tartu, Estonia


EXCS (Estonian eXcellence in Computer Science), http://cs.ioc.ee/excs/,
is a new Estonian centre of excellence (CoE) 2008-2015 that has just
been awarded 66.4 MEEK (ca 4.25 MEUR) of ERDF funds.

The CoE unites computer scientists from the Institute of Cybernetics
at Tallinn Univ of Techn, Cybernetica AS and the University of Tartu.

Within this CoE we are currently seeking

up to eight postdoctoral fellows

to join our working groups, which are

    * Programming Languages and Systems
    * Information Security and Cryptology
    * Software Engineering
    * Scientific and Engineering Computing
    * Bioinformatics
    * Human Language Technology

The positions may be placed by any of the participating institutions,
depending on the working group.

The contracts are initially for two years, renewable for further two
years. The preferred start date is 1 January 2009, but can be
negotiated. Depending on the successful applicants' qualifications and
track record, the gross salary can vary between 28000..35000 EEK
(1800..2250 EUR) per month, which is competitive against the sectoral
salaries and living cost in Estonia. The employment arrangement
includes access to the Estonian public healthcare system.

The main selection criterion will be the applicants' ability and
commitment to research, which will be assessed both qualitatively and
quantitatively, focussing on outstanding results, but looking at the
whole range of experience of the applicants. Selection will be
performed by the management committee of the project.

EXCS adheres to the European charter for researchers and code of
conduct for the recruitment of researchers. Information about the working
conditions for foreign researchers in Estonia is available through the
smartEstonia mobility portal, http://www.smartestonia.ee/, a node of
the EU-wide EuraXess network, http://ec.europa.eu/euraxess/.

Enquiries about the positions, project and the employers should be
sent to the project leader Dr Tarmo Uustalu, tarmo(at)cs.ioc.ee, or
the project co-leader Dr Peeter Laud, peeter(at)cyber.ee.

Applications must be submitted online through the online form at 


Candidates must attach their CV, a digital copy (scan) of their degree
certificate and a research statement. Application deadline: 30
September 2008.
