Algorithms and Complexity

Open PhD Position

Are you interested in solving mathematical problems? Are you particularly attracted by algorithmic and/or combinatorial questions? Are you also fascinated by the possibilities of future computer applications that will be built on top of various forms of large-scale networks and highly parallel systems?

We are always looking for talented PhD students (salary: 100%, E13) for our group. Our research mostly focuses on questions regarding algorithms and complexity of problems arising in the context of large, decentralized networks. For more details, see the description of our recently granted ERC project ACDC and the list of our publications.

Applicants need to have a strong background and interest in algorithms and/or combinatorics. You ideally should have an MSc degree in computer science with a focus on algorithms/theory or a MSc degree in mathematics with a minor in computer science.

In order to apply, please send an email with your application documents to kuhn@cs.uni-freiburg.de. Your application should include a detailed CV and a short cover letter, where you introduce yourself and your motivation to apply to our group. If possible, please also include official transcripts of your Bachelor and Master studies and possibly copies of a Bachelor or Master thesis or a student project in the area of algorithms/theory. Additional material that shows why you are suited for the job is also welcome.
