[apologies for multiple postings]

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: Ph.D. Fellowships at RISC, Austria

The Research Institute for Symbolic Computation (RISC) offers
positions and fellowships for doctoral studies in symbolic computation.

Symbolic Computation is the subarea of mathematics and computer
science which solves problems on symbolic objects representable on a
computer. The Research Institute for Symbolic Computation (RISC) in
the castle of Hagenberg, Austria, is an international institute with
its research focus on various branches of symbolic computation.
Research interests of RISC include

* Algebraic Geometry
* Algorithmic Combinatorics
* Automated Reasoning
* Computer Algebra
* Parallel and Distributed Computing
* Scientific Computing

RISC has a program for doctoral studies. About 25 Ph.D. students from
all over the world are currently participating in this program. In the
frame of its doctoral program, RISC offers

* a curriculum with lectures and seminars in English,
* fellowships for covering living expenses in Austria,
* access to latest research results in the field,
* an inspiring research environment in a medieval castle, and
* participation in an international scientific network.

RISC seeks applications of excellent and highly motivated students
with a university degree in mathematics and/or computer science.
Experience in symbolic computation is an advantage but no formal

Applications should be submitted electronically on
