POSTDOCS and PHD STUDENTS
for the Algorithms and Complexity Department
directed by Kurt Mehlhorn
We are looking for applicants from all areas of algorithmics, including
related areas like computer algebra, complexity theory, and discrete
mathematics. We are also explicitly looking for people interested in
computational geometry and topology, algorithm engineering and the
design and implementation of algorithm libraries.
The Max-Planck-Institute for Computer Science is located on the campus
of the Universitaet des Saarlandes in Saarbruecken, Germany. Currently,
around 40 researchers from several nationalities work in the Algorithms
and Complexity Department. Our working language is English. The group
collaborates with several of the major research institutions in Europe
and the U.S. and has high international visibility. There is generous
travel support available for all group members. Ph.D. positions are for
three years (the initial contract will be for two years), while
postdoctoral fellowships are available for one or two years. Conditions
for postdocs depend on the qualifications of the applicants.
Applications from disabled applicants are appreciated. Our institute
supports the principle of equal opportunity for men and women, and is
therefore interested in applications from women.
Applications must be sent by email in PDF format to d1-office <at>
mpi-inf.mpg.de by January 31, 2013, specifying clearly whether
the application is for a PhD or for a postdoc position. Applications
must include a curriculum vitae, list of grades and the names of three
references with their e-mail addresses. Postdoc applications should
additionally include a research plan (1 page is enough), intended period
of stay, and your two most "interesting" papers (preferably just URLs).
