[DMANET] PhD position at TU Berlin

Institute of Mathematics
Technische Universität Berlin

PhD position in Algorithms/Theory
with a focus on Graph Exploration and Algorithmic Game Theory.
Research Assistant (100% TV-L 13) for three years starting August 1,
2014, or later.

A PhD position is available in the „Combinatorial Optimization and Graph
Algorithms Group" at TU Berlin (www.coga.tu-berlin.de), founded by the
newly established DFG Priority Programme "Algorithms for Big Data". The
task of the successful applicant is to develop new theoretical insights
and algorithms for the exploration of large graphs by teams of
cooperating and/or competing agents.

Candidates should have an excellent academic degree in mathematics,
computer science or a related area, and must have very good knowledge in
graph theory and algorithms. Experience in algorithmic game theory
and/or graph exploration is welcome. Good communication skills and solid
English writing skills are expected.

Besides its many cultural attractions, Berlin offers a strong scientific
landscape including three major universities, the international graduate
(www.math-berlin.de), promoted by the German Excellence Initiative, the
DFG research training group "Methods for Discrete Structures"
(www.math.tu-berlin.de/MDS) and the DFG research center MATHEON
(www.matheon.de); these offer opportunities for joint research and
support for PhD students and postdocs (e.g., meetings, lecture series,
summer schools etc.).

Applicants should send their application as *a single pdf* file
- cover and motivation letter
- curriculum vitae
