**Prof. Namrata Vaswani (****http://www.ece.iastate.edu/~namrata/**** , associate professor
of Electrical and Computer Engineering and courtesy associate professor of
Mathematics at Iowa State University) Looking for a Postdoc
and/or a Graduate Student**

I am looking for a postdoc and/or a
graduate student to start in my group soon (Fall 2015, Spring
2016 or Fall 2016).

**Postdoc****:** Candidates with a Ph.D.
in Electrical Engineering (EE) , Mathematics /Applied
Mathematics or Mathematical Statistics and with background related to the
topics mentioned below are encouraged to apply. Other desirable skills include
at least one of the following: (a) the interest and ability to work hard, (b)
the ability to think independently, (c) the ability to write well
(mathematically correct and easy to understand documents).

**Graduate
Student:**
Students with an undergraduate or a Masters degree
in Electrical Engineering (EE) or Mathematics /Applied Mathematics and with a
strong background in linear algebra and probability (undergrad level
probability taught in an EE or Math program is enough) are encouraged to apply.
Other desirable skills include at least one of the following: (a) the interest
and ability to work hard, (b) the ability to think independently, (c) the
ability to write well (mathematically correct and easy to understand
documents).

**Research
in my Group:**

My research lies at
the intersection of signal/information processing and machine learning for high
dimensional problems. In recent years, my group has worked on developing and
analyzing online algorithms for various high-dimensional structured data
recovery problems such as online sparse matrix recovery (recursive recovery of
sparse vector sequences) or dynamic compressed sensing, online robust principal
components' analysis (PCA) and online matrix completion, sparse PCA etc. Some
ongoing work also involves proof of concept applications in video analytics and
bioimaging. For more details, see http://www.ece.iastate.edu/~namrata/publications.html (the two talks posted on this page will provide a good overview).

If you are interested and possess the above skills, please email me at namrata@iastate.edu with the subject line `Postdoc application` or `PhD application` respectively.
Please attach a copy of your resume, either a transcript (scanned or unofficial
is fine) or a link to your webpage and a copy of your paper/thesis in case of postdoc app.
