[DMANET] Two PhD Positions on Parameterized Complexity in Graph Drawing at TU Wien, Vienna, Austria

The positions are part of the project "Parameterized Graph Drawing"
and are hosted by the Algorithms and Complexity Group at TU Wien (the
Vienna University of Technology). The accepted students will be
co-supervised by Robert Ganian and Martin Nöllenburg.

We offer the possibility of working on exciting research projects in
an international research group, with ample travel funding, and the
option of collaborating not only with postdocs and PhD students within
the project but also with other members of the Algorithms and
Complexity Group ( There are no major
teaching obligations associated with the position and the working

understanding of parameterized complexity or graph drawing, and a
willingness to work in the intersection of these two fields.

The application should include the candidate's CV, a short motivation
letter, and optionally also a letter of recommendation (all in a
single pdf file; alternatively, the letter of recommendation may be
sent directly by their authors). Applicants are invited to also send a
