Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin

1 Postdoctoral Position in Algorithms
Research Assistant (100% TV-L E 13), 3 years

A 3-year postdoctoral position in Algorithms is available in the
research group of Prof. Stefan Kratsch at the Department of Computer
Science at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. The intended starting date is
