Reminder: PhD Studentship in Algorithms and Complexity - Royal Holloway, University of London

This is a reminder that the application deadline is due soon.

> (full tuition-fee waiver, stipend of approximately USD 25,000
> per annum and support for conference travels)
> STARTING DATE: October 1, 2015
> The Department of Computer Science at Royal Holloway,
> University of London is offering a three-year full-time PhD
> studentship in algorithms and complexity starting in October
> 2015. The studentship includes a full tuition-fee waiver and a
> maintenance award in line with the level recommended by
> Research Councils UK (exact value to be confirmed, circa GBP
> 16,000 (USD 25,000 or EUR 20,000)). The student will be hosted
> in the Center for Algorithms and Applications and will work
> under the supervision of Dr Iddo Tzameret
> (
> The project is broadly in the area of computational complexity
> with an emphasis on satisfiability and the complexity of
> proofs. The successful candidate will investigate fundamental
> aspects of the Boolean satisfiability problem SAT from possibly
> different aspects - combinatorial, algebraic and logical - with
> a possibility to engage as well in applied or empirical study
> of SAT-solving and other applications related to SAT, depending
> on the preferences and qualifications of the candidate.
> For more information see:
> Applications should be made as soon as possible through the
> online application system at Royal Holloway, University of London:
> and will remain open until the position is filled.
> The successful candidate will have obtained a first-class
> Bachelors or Masters degree in Computer Science, Mathematics or
> a cognate discipline, have a solid understanding of
> foundational aspects of computer science and, specifically,
> computational complexity (knowledge of logic will also be
> appreciated), meet the requirements for English language (IELTS
> or TOEFL), and be highly motivated. Every application will be
> analyzed individually.
> For any informal inquiries about the position, please contact
> Dr Iddo Tzameret at:
> The Computer Science Department at Royal Holloway, University
> of London, is one of the UK's leading centers for research into
> Computer Science. In the most recent Reference Excellent
> Framework (REF 2014), the department ranked 11th in the UK for
> the quality of research output, with over 32% of publications
> recognized as world leading, and 55% internationally excellent.
> The department consists of world-leading researchers in
> algorithms and complexity, bioinformatics, distributed and
> global computing, machine learning, software language
> engineering, and applications of logic in computer science.
> Research students enjoy a very lively research culture and are
> fully involved in the research activities of the Department
> (and share their successes). The Department also funds students
> to present their work at international conferences.
