[DMANET] PhD / Postdoc positions in distributed algorithms





Are you interested in solving mathematical problems? Are you
particularly attracted by algorithmic and/or combinatorial questions?
Are you also fascinated by the possibilities of future computer
applications that will be built on top of various forms of large-scale
networks and highly parallel systems?

There are open postdoctoral and PhD positions (salary: 100%, E13) in
the research group of Fabian Kuhn at the University of Freiburg,
Germany. Our research mostly focuses on questions regarding algorithms
and complexity of problems arising in the context of large,
decentralized networks. For more details, see the list of our
publications at http://ac.informatik.uni-freiburg.de/publications

Applicants need to have a strong background and interest in algorithms
and/or combinatorics. To apply for a PhD position, you ideally should
have an MSc degree in computer science with a focus on
algorithms/theory or an MSc degree in mathematics with a minor in
computer science. Candidates for a postdoc positions need to have a
PhD degree and a strong publication record in the general area of our

In order to apply, please send an email with your application
documents to Fabian Kuhn (kuhn@cs.uni-freiburg.de). Your application
should include a detailed CV and a short cover letter where you
introduce yourself and your motivation to apply to our
group. Applicants for a PhD position should also include official
transcripts of your Bachelor and Master studies and possibly copies of
a Bachelor or Master thesis or a student project in the area of
algorithms/theory. Postdoc candidates should include names and email
addresses of at least two references. Additional material that shows
that you are suited for the job is also welcome.
