[DMANET] 2 PhD/Postdoc Positions in Combinatorial Optimization

2 PhD/Postdoc positions
University of Bremen, Germany

Two Phd and/or Postdoc positions in combinatorial optimization are
available in the group of Prof. Nicole Megow at the University of Bremen
in the department of mathematics and computer science. The group's
research focus is on combinatorial optimization, efficient algorithms,
approximation algorithms, scheduling, network design and algorithms,
optimization under uncertainty such as online, stochastic, and robust
optimization, and their application in practice.

Candidates should have an excellent academic degree in mathematics,
theoretical computer science or a related area, and must have good
knowledge in combinatorial optimization and algorithm theory. A
background in some of the other above-mentioned topics is desirable.
Good communication skills and solid English writing skills are
necessary. In addition, the successful candidate will be highly
self-motivated, passionate about his/her work, and have good ability to
work both independently as well as in a team.

Both positions are full-time positions, involve teaching, and they are
paid according to the Federal German Payment scale TV-L 13.

Applications will be reviewed starting from January 15, 2017, until the
position is filled. The envisioned starting date is as soon as possible
but may be negotiable.

Please send your application (including cover/motivation letter,
curriculum vitae, list of publications, and the names and contact
information of at least two references) to the address below. Electronic
submissions are highly encouraged (please attach relevant documents as
*a single pdf*).
