[DMANET] Two PhD Positions in Algorithm Engineering

You  love  algorithms, their analysis and efficient implementation? You
are about to or know somebody who graduates with an excellent Master's
degree and is looking
for a PhD position? Then please read on:

The research group "Theory and Applications of Algorithms" at the
University of Vienna
and the Parallel Computing group at the Technical University Vienna
is inviting applications for two full-time position of a

    PhD Student / University Assistant ("Prae-Doc") (m/f)

starting on January 1st, 2019 (the exact date is negotiable).
The initial contract length is one year, but an extension is highly

Working Area:

A successful candidate will work under the supervision of Dr. Christian
Schulz and Prof. Dr. Jesper Larsson Träff
on the topics of algorithm engineering, parallel and distributed
algorithms in particular for process mapping and other partitioning
problems. Further responsibilities as part of the position include the
supervision of bachelor and master students and possibly TA duties.


- Very good university degree (Master or equivalent) in computer science
or a related field
- Solid skills in software development and in the theoretical analysis
of algorithms (evidenced by your thesis or relevant courses); knowledge
in combinatorial algorithms and linear algebra is particularly desirable
- Self-motivation, team spirit and willingness to work in
interdisciplinary projects
- Knowledge in parallel programming (in particular MPI) is a plus, but
no requirement

University Vienna and the Techical University Vienna offer excellent 
conditions for undergraduate, graduate, and PhD students. As part of the
university we pursue a non-discriminatory employment policy and value
equal opportunities, as well as diversity
( The universities lay special emphasis
on increasing the number of women in senior and in academic positions.
Given equal qualifications, preference will be given to female applicants.

Please forward this email to anyone who may be interested or send your
application documents (cover letter,
CV, copies of certificates, a skype address for a possible interview and
the contact information of
two references if available) to the address below. To receive full
consideration, submit the documents via email
