[DMANET] Postdoc position - Fundamentals of Computer Science @ Georg-August-Universität Göttingen

The Institute of Computer Science at the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen
(the Fundamentals of Computer Science group of Prof. Dr. Florin MANEA) is
looking to fill as soon as possible the full-time position of a

Research Assistant (Postdoc) (all genders welcome)

Regular working hours will be 39,8 hours per week with a limited contract
of 12 months, with the possibility of extension for another 6 months.
Salary: Pay grade 13 TV-L.

Your duties
- Work in the research area of the DFG-funded project Combinatorics of Word
Morphisms. Combinatorial pattern matching is the area of theoretical
computer science that is concerned with the study of combinatorial and
algorithmic properties of finite and infinite sequences of symbols (also
called words or strings). This field lies at the crossroads of algebra,
combinatorics, complexity theory, and algorithms theory, and has multiple
applications in data compression, cryptography, language theory, but also
bioinformatics or data mining. One of the core topics within this area is
the understanding of combinatorial and algorithmic properties of
word-morphisms. We propose the study of word-morphisms from two points of
view: algorithmic and mathematical.
- Communication and publication of the obtained research results in
scientific journals and international conferences.
- Supervision of student theses and the work of student assistants on
research questions resulting from the project.

Your profile
- You hold a highly qualified PhD in Theoretical Computer Science or
Mathematics (Combinatorics),
- have a research focus on Combinatorics on words, String algorithms, or
Formal languages and Automata Theory.,
- are proficient in English (speaking and writing),
- have experience in publishing results in international scientific
journals and conference proceedings, as well as in presenting their work in
international scientific conferences.

The University of Göttingen is an equal opportunities employer and places
particular emphasis on fostering career opportunities for women. Qualified
women are therefore strongly encouraged to apply in fields in which they
are underrepresented. The university has committed itself to being a
