[DMANET] PhD position in Computational Geometry at Ruhr University Bochum

The workgroup Algorithms and Complexity at Ruhr University Bochum is
offering a PhD position in Computational Geometry. The position is
funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) for 3 years. The topic of
the project is "Efficient Algorithms for Analysing the Movement of
Groups". The project aims to develop efficient algorithms and data
structures for fundamental analysis tasks on movement data of groups.
Specifically, we will consider algorithms for representing, segmenting,
and determining similarity. The project is headed by Jun.-Prof. Maike
Buchin at Ruhr University Bochum. Dr. Andrea Koelzsch at the Max-Planck
Institut for Ornithology is a partner in the project, and will
contribute data for evaluating the algorithms. The position can be
filled from September 1, 2016, or later.

The successful candidate must hold a MSc in Computer Science or
Mathematics. Preferably, she/he should have expertise in Computational
Geometry, experience in programming and an interest in working

Please send your application until July 4, 2016, by email to Inquiries can be send to the same address.
