POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH FELLOW in ALGORITHMS AND COMPLEXITY (ALGORITHMIC
A researcher is required to participate in the EPSRC-funded Research
Project "Algorithmic Mechanism Design and Optimization Problems with
Economic Applications". The research will be undertaken within the
Economics and Computation Research Group in the Department of
Computer Science at the University of Liverpool (UK), under the
supervision of Dr Piotr Krysta. The aim of the project is to apply
algorithmic and computational complexity tools to game theoretic problems
motivated by concrete applications in electronic commerce and networks.
In particular approximation algorithms techniques will be used. The
project may involve collaboration with other staff members in the
Department of Computer Science at the University of Liverpool.
The successful candidate will have a PhD in the area of Algorithms and
Complexity Theory. Knowledge and/or a PhD in the area of Algorithmic Game
Theory will be highly appreciated.
The post is available for 20 months, commencing August 2010, or as soon as
