To potential post-doc:
Yes, my research group as post-doc positions open.
I am looking for post-doc in the area of network science .
You need to have a strong background in
stochastic processes, random graphs, knowledge in applied machine learning
methods, and algorithm analysis.If you are interested, please email me and provide me with your CV (or resume)
as well as your background information.
To potential research students:
Yes, our research group is looking for some energetic and hardworking
students/researchers !!!! Please send me email or come to my office
If you are interested in mathematical or system research on
networking, security and distributed systems, please
come to my office and we can have a chat to
see whether we have any common research interest.
For students who have a strong background in mathematics or theory,
for example, students who have degrees in Computer Science/Engineering,
Mathematics and/or Physics,
our research group is actively seeking these candidates
for some very interesting research projects.
The backgrounds we seek are:
probability, stochastic processes, statistical analysis such
as mean field analysis, game theory, approximation algorithms,...etc.
Let me first state the background I want for my students:
- have a strong background in mathematics and/or system .
For mathematical background, I'm looking for:
- probability and stochastic processes;
- background on algorithms and analysis;
- game theory,
- approximation algorithms,
- mathematical optimization techniques, ...etc.
System implies the following knowledge:
- strong in C or C++;
- good knowledge in Linux kernel;
- good knowledge in network programming, ...etc.
- Beside having a strong background in mathematics and systems,
I also expect my students to have the following qualities
( yes, I count these qualities to be more important than your
technical knowledge background ):
- high intellectual curiosity (e.g., willing and motivated to learn
new things so as to expand one's intellectual horizon);
- have passion in doing "research".
John C.S. Lui
Last but not least, the following is a famous quote by Calvin Coolidge (1872),
whose statement reflects my research style and my expectation:
Press on: Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education will not; the world is full of educated failures.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
