[DMANET] Funded positions for doctoral research in Algorithmic Game Theory at Teesside University, UK

Opportunities to undertake a fully funded PhD program in Algorithmic
Game Theory are available at Teesside University, UK.

A first route is via a graduate tutor position. This role allows to
study for a PhD program over 4 years, whilst also gaining the
opportunity to acquire regular and structured experience through a
light contribution to the teaching activities of the School of
Computing. The salary is higher than a normal PhD studentship (and
additionally all fees are paid).

We now accept applications to this role; deadline is July 31, 2016.

More details, including application procedure, can be found at

Moreover, we anticipate the possibility of having a fully-funded PhD
studentship (without teaching commitments) at a later stage
(presumably after the summer).

Prospective candidates for either role must have (or expect to have)
at least a good honours degree Computer Science, Mathematics or
Economics at grade 2:1 (or equivalent) or higher. The role requires
good background knowledge in Theoretical Computer Science, discrete
mathematics related to computer science and algorithm design.
Background knowledge in Microeconomics or Algorithmic Game Theory is
also desirable.

Prospective applicants are welcome to contact myself for informal
enquiries (about the roles and/or the application procedure).

Finally, with similar modalities, we do have other projects in the
general area of game theory; namely, "Evolutionary Mechanism Design"
and "Emergence of Co-operative Behaviour and AI Cognition". Do have a
look at and feel
free to contact me for further info on those projects as well.
