[DMANET] PostDoc Position in GraphDrawing

We announce

ONE PostDoc Position for 18 months

at the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, Germany, at the Institute of
Mathematical Logic, as part of the research project "Graph Drawing with Low Visual
Complexity" funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The position is
for 18 months with the chance of an extension for another 18 month.
The project is supervised by Prof. André Schulz ( ).

The aim of the project is to develop and to evaluate new algorithms for drawing graphs
in the plane while using a small ground set of geometric objects. The
developed algorithms will be evaluated with theoretical methods and also in
online user studies.

We expect that the candidate has (or is very close to) a PhD in Computer Science
or Mathematics and a solid background in discrete math and algorithms. Ideally, the
applicant has knowledge and interest in at least one of the following fields:

- graph drawing
- algorithms
- graph theory
- computational geometry

Good programming skills are mandatory. Experience in statistical analysis of
empirical data would be a plus.

Please send your applications consisting of

- a cover letter,
- curriculum vitae,
- the PhD thesis (preliminary version, if not finished),
- a letter of reference (to be directly sent to us),


Prof. Dr. André Schulz
Institut für Mathematische Logik und Grundlagenforschung
Fachbereich Mathematik und Informatik der Universität Münster
Einsteinstraße 62
D-48149 Münster, Germany

It is also possible to apply via email. In this case send your application as
one single pdf-file to andre.schulz[at] .

The deadline is September 30, but applications will be considered until the position
is filled.

If you have further questions about the position, please send an email
to andre.schulz[at] .
