[DMANET] Ph.D. position in net-centric algorithmics at TU Darmstadt, Germany

The Algorithmics group at TU Darmstadt invites applications for a
Ph.D. position within the collaborative research centre,
"Multi-Mechanism Adaptation for the Future Internet". The research
centre is devoted to the exploration of perspectives for automatic
switches of communication protocols, simultaneously on all layers of
the protocol hierarchy. As a member of a large interdisciplinary team
of professors and Ph.D. students, you will design, implement, and
evaluate discrete algorithms for optimal switch strategies, which are
based on monitoring data from the Internet. At the end, your algorithm
will run in a distributed way as a part of the decentralized network
control. You will be a member of subproject B02, in which two
professors and two Ph.D. candidates collaboratively work on that

The first funding phase commences on January 1st, 2013, and will
endure four years. You are expected to write a Ph.D. thesis on the
basis of this project within this time period. For formal reasons,
contracts must be renewed annually.
There is no formal deadline; applications will be considered until the
position is filled.

You should hold a degree in Computer Science, Mathematics, or a
related subject. We expect very good programming skills (Java or C++).
You should have a deep interest in the design of algorithms for
real-world applications. Background knowledge in communication
networks is not mandatory but highly desirable.
