Looking for PhD students and a postdoctoral fellow to start in Fall 2019

Distributed Algorithms.
I am looking for at least one PhD student to start in fall 2019 to work on largescale distributed graph algorihms.
The main qualification would be a strong background and interest in the design and analysis of algorithms.
Additionally, background and interest in distributed algorithms, randomization/probabilistic analysis,
communication complexity, and information theory woud be a definite plus, but is not a requirement.
If you are interested, take a look at my DBLP page
for recent papers that will give you a sense of my research focus.
Also take a look at recent graduate level courses I have taught on Distributed Algorithms and
Randomized Algorithms.

Computational Epidemiology.
The Computational Epidemiology group, that I am a part of,
is looking for at least one PhD student and a postdoctoral fellow to start in Fall 2019.
We are seeking to fill positions in a CDC funded project on modeling and simulation of Healthcare Acquired
Infectious diseases. The project is an interdisciplinary collaboration of researchers based in the Departments
of Computer Science, Biostatistics, and Internal Medicine at the University of Iowa.
Students seeking PhD positions in this group are expected to have an interest and background in
one or more of the following areas: data/graph mining, machine learning, social network analysis,
discreteevent simulations, and statistical computing.
Candidates for the postdoc position are expected to have similar interests and a PhD in Computer Science or
Applied Mathematics or Biostatistics.
Background in healthcare data analytics is a plus, but not essential.
To understand the process of applying to the PhD program at the University of Iowa, Department of Computer Science, take
a look at Fall 2019 Prospective Graduate Students webpages.
In any case, feel free to write to me with a current CV.
