[DMANET] Second call: Post doc position in Graph theory at University of Southern Denmark

The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Southern Denmark (Odense Campus) invites applications for a postdoctoral research fellowship in the area of Graph Theory and Graph Algorithms. The proposed starting time is mid August 2018, or as soon as possible thereafter. The position is for a duration of one year and six months. Application deadline: 16 April 2018.

The postdoc is expected to perform high quality research under the supervision of Professors Jørgen Bang-Jensen and Anders Yeo, as part of the research project 'Packing, covering and partitions of digraphs' funded in the period 2018-2020 by the Danish council for independent research.

The project deals with structural and algorithmic aspects of problems related to packing, covering or partitions in digraphs and generalizations of digraphs, such as edge-coloured graphs. Examples are: packing cycles, linkage problems, packing strong subdigraphs, branchings, vertex partitions with prescribed properties in (di)graphs, packing sub(di)graphs in digraphs, edge-coloured graphs, completing partial orientations of graphs to obtain digraphs with prescribed properties.

You are expected to possess a PhD in graph theory or theoretical computer science with a strong background in graph theory, graph algorithms and/or the structure of directed graphs.

Candidates who are preparing their doctoral thesis are eligible to apply; however, they must have obtained their PhD degree before taking up their appointment at SDU. Due to rules from the research council, a candidate is only eligible for the position if the PhD has been obtained at most four years before the application deadline of this position, i.e. the degree must have been obtained after 16 April 2014.

The successful applicant is expected to participate in the teaching and supervision activities within the department.

For further information please contact Jørgen Bang-Jensen at jbj@imada.sdu.dk or Anders Yeo at yeo@imada.sdu.dk.
