[DMANET] PhD position in Prague on ERC CoG CoCoSym

We are looking for highly motivated and creative PhD student to work on the
ERC funded project Symmetry in Computational Complexity (CoCoSym) under the
supervision of Libor Barto at the Department of Algebra, Faculty of
Mathematics and Physics, Charles University, Prague.

The project concerns the complexity and approximability of constraint
satisfaction problems and is at the intersection of several areas of
mathematics and theoretical computer science (general algebra, logic,
computational complexity, combinatorics, analysis). Please see
for more information.

The starting date of the PhD study is October 2019. The applicant is
expected to have the master degree completed by this date. The duration is
four years. The position is fully funded from the ERC grant, funding for
conference travel is also available.
