****SPAM**** [DMANET] PhD student position at KIT (parallel algorithms)

You love algorithms, their analysis and efficient implementation? You
are about to graduate with an excellent Master's degree and are looking
for a PhD position? Then please read on:

The group "Theoretical Computer Science / Parallel Computing" at the
Department of Informatics of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Germany)
is inviting applications for the position of a

PhD Student / Research Assistant (m/f) (pay grade 13 TV-L)

starting on April 1st, 2016 (the exact date is negotiable). This
full-time position is expected to have funding for three years. An
initial restriction to a shorter contract may be necessary.

Working Area:

The research group is primarily concerned with the development of
algorithms for problems from network science, combinatorial scientific
computing, and applied optimization. In the focus of this position are
research projects on theoretically sound as well as practical algorithms
for balancing the computational load of large-scale parallel graph

Further responsibilities as part of the position include the supervision
of bachelor and master students and possibly TA duties. That is why
decent knowledge of German is desirable.


- Very good university degree (Master or equivalent) in computer science
or a related field
- Solid skills in software development and in the theoretical analysis
of algorithms (evidenced by your thesis or relevant courses);
knowledge in combinatorial algorithms and linear algebra is particularly
- Self-motivation, team spirit and willingness to work in
interdisciplinary projects
- Knowledge in parallel programming (in particular MPI) is a plus, but
no requirement

KIT offers excellent conditions for undergraduate, graduate, and PhD
students. Its computer science department is one of the largest in
Germany. KIT is pursuing a gender equality policy. We would therefore
particularly encourage qualified women to apply. If qualified,
handicapped applicants will be preferred.

Please send your application documents (cover letter, CV, copies of
certificates and the contact information of two references) to the
address below. To receive full consideration, submit the documents by
December 10, 2015 to:

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)
