The successful applicant will participate in research project A07 in the frame of the DFG-funded Transregio TRR 154. The task of the successful applicant is to study combinatorial optimization problems that arise, for example, in the construction and operation of new hydrogen networks or other gas networks. The opportunity to prepare a PhD thesis will be provided.

- succesfully completed university degree (Master, Diplom or equivalent) in Mathematics, Computer Science or related fields; clearly above-average grades are desired
- profound knowledge in Discrete Mathematics, Algorithm Design and Algorithm Analysis are desirable
- knowledge in the field of Optimization or related areas is desirable
- good command of German and/or English required; willingness to learn either English or German is expected

Please send your application with the reference number II-654/22 and the usual documents (letter, CV, relevant certificates and degrees, combined in a single pdf file, max 5 MB) by email to kiefer@math.tu-berlin.de<mailto:kiefer@math.tu-berlin.de>.
