30 Jun 2022 Ph.D. and PostDoc positions in Algorithms at IDSIA

Toggle description

The Algorithms and Complexity Group of IDSIA, USI-SUPSI, Lugano (Switzerland), opens 2 Ph.D. positions and some PostDoc positions. These positions are supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation project "Ideal Membership Problems and the Bit Complexity of Sum of Squares Proofs" (November 2022-October 2026).


The project is on the interface of three very active areas of research in theoretical computer science and mathematics. The first one deals with polynomial ideals and their properties and goes all the way back to David Hilbert. The second one is a widely used tool in complexity, algebraic and semi-algebraic proof systems such as Sum-of-Squares (SoS), where the main question is when a proof of a certain property of a polynomial can be efficiently found. The third area is the analysis of the complexity of constraint satisfaction problems (CSPs), mainly through the universal-algebraic approach. These areas address key problems in theoretical computer science, they produce a very significant amount of world class research, with many publications in world-leading venues in theoretical computer science. The proposed project is about a new direction of research combining these three areas mentioned above. This new direction of research was recently initiated by the PI of this project in a series of publications and followed up by other works by world-leading experts on universal-algebraic methods in CSPs. The new direction proposes to combine two widely used methodologies in a new way, with an algebraic geometry view used to bring them together. This new combination opens up a whole range of new very interesting problems.

The Ph.D. positions are for 2+2 years, and they are supposed to start on November 1st 2022 with moderate flexibility. The gross salary is around 50.000 CHF per year, with low taxes. The position involves a moderate teaching load (as teaching assistant) at USI. There is travel support. Candidates should hold (or be close to obtaining) a Master Degree in Computer Science or related areas. A solid background in Algorithms, Computational Complexity, Discrete Mathematics, Mathematical Programming is helpful. A good knowledge of written and spoken English is also required (while knowledge of Italian is not needed).

The PostDoc positions are initially for 1 year, but an extension by 1 extra year is expected (further extensions are possible). The project supports 1 PostDoc position per year on average. The gross salary is around 80.000 CHF per year, with low taxes. There are no teaching duties and there is travel support. Candidates should hold (or be close to obtaining) a Ph.D. in Computer Science or related areas and should have a solid publication record and a solid background in at least one of the areas mentioned above.

IDSIA offers an international working environment. Lugano is a tidy and lively town, with a wonderful view on Ceresio lake and mountains around. Ticino Canton offers many opportunities for hiking, biking, skiing, etc. Local restaurants serve very good food.

The interested candidates should email a detailed CV and contact details of 2-3 references to Prof. Monaldo Mastrolilli, monaldo at idsia.ch.
For full consideration, Ph.D. and Postdoc applications should be sent within 30th June 2022. Further PostDoc applications can be sent at any time during the first 3 years of the project.

For any question, do not hesitate to contact:

Leuven is a beautiful and liveable city with a large and international student population in the heart of Europe, only a 20min train-ride from Brussels and well-connected to many other European metropoles. Our faculty is located in the historic city center, just a 5min walk from the UNESCO World Heritage Site "Groot Begijnhof".

We offer employment as a full-time doctoral scholar for initially one year, renewable for up to four years after positive evaluation. Salary is competitive and funds for conference travels, participation in summer schools, and other activities are available. The tentative starting date is October 2022, but later dates are possible, depending on the availability of the candidate.

KU Leuven seeks to foster an environment where all talents can flourish, regardless of gender, age, cultural background, nationality, or impairments.

It is now widely recognized that the slowness of the Italian civil justice system produces negative effects on the economy of the Nation. It, therefore, becomes of fundamental importance to implement an improvement in the efficiency and quality of the national judicial system. The reorganization of the judicial machine involves several directions and, in this sense, the optimization of resources plays a fundamental role in reducing the operating times of judicial offices, at the same time guaranteeing an increase in the level of quality of the work of judges and clerks, as well as the upgrading of the image of "Justice at the service of the country".

10 Mar 2022 Software Engineer, OR Specialist

Toggle description

Salvagnini Italia SpA is looking for software engineers to enforce the software department to develop CAD\CAM applications in order to optimize the use of his machine tool for the sheet metal working process.



Job title: software engineer

Type of Contract: permanent contract

Division: Software Department

Duty Station: Sarego, Vicenza, Italy (38 hours per week applied, i.e. Friday working time is from 8.00 up to 14.00, smart working available on a basis of 2 days each week)



Salvagnini produces machine tools for the flexible thin sheet metal industry. It produces punching, laser cutting, automatic panel bender and press brake machines.

Salvagnini is the worldwide leader in automatic panel bender machines and one of the most important players on the other sheet metal machines.

It stands out as a system supplier, that consists of a set of linked machine to automatize the material flow from the raw material (rectangular flat sheets with commercial sizes) to the finite product with a very low human intervention.

For this purpose, besides proper tool machines, Salvagnini designs, produces and sells many connection systems for the material handling of semi-finished and finished products.

Salvagnini is a group, with production site in Italy (Sarego, Brendola, Avellino) and Austria (Linz) and numerous selling and post-selling sites.

Salvagnini machine tools distinguish themselves for their flexibility, that is the ability to load and execute a different program without machine idle times: this requires the programming time of the machine to be comparable to the cycle time (less than a minute in many cases). The software department then develops software applications that let the user transform a drawing of his product (CAD) into a program for the tool machines (CAM) that he will use in an optimized way.

To this end, we intensively use OR optimization algorithms, combined with computational geometry.

The software department accounts as core values the knowledge sharing and the availability to work in a group, together with the development and the maintenance of the complete application’s life cycle.



The software applications are typically desktop one in Microsoft environment, developed using VisualStudio in C++ and dotNet language.
