[DMANET] PhD Position in Parameterized Algorithms (Deadline Extended)

The Algorithms and Complexity Group at the Vienna University of Technology
(TU Wien) is offering a fully funded PhD position within the research
project "New Frontiers for Parameterized Complexity". The project investigates
the complexity of problems not only in the traditional graph setting, but
also in areas such as Artificial Intelligence and Integer Linear
Programming. The candidate will be supervised by Robert Ganian (Project PI).

Applicants are expected to have excellent mathematical skills as well as an
interest in discrete algorithms.

The position should start in the second half of 2018 and is for up to three
years (the expected duration of the PhD program). The salary is according
to the FWF standard contracts for PhD candidates (approx. EUR 38,000.00
gross, p.a.), which allows for a convenient life in Vienna close to the
city center.

The application should include the candidate's CV, an abstract of the
thesis, a short motivation letter, and two letters of recommendation (all
five items in a single pdf file; alternatively, letters of recommendation
may be sent directly by their authors). The application should also mention
possible starting dates and should be sent to by 14 May
2018 (extended from 30 April).

Enquiries and questions about the position are welcome and may also be sent
