Two postdoctoral positions in algorithmic game theory, Liverpool & Glasgow (U.K.)


Two postdoc positions in Algorithmic Game Theory are available at the Universities of Liverpool 
and Glasgow, on a EPSRC-funded research project entitled "Efficient Algorithms for Mechanism 
Design without Monetary Transfer".

The aim of this project is to find new approximate and optimal, truthful mechanisms for 
combinatorial auctions, matching problems with preferences and facility location problems, 
in each case in the absence of monetary transfer. This will involve theoretical research, to 
include the design and analysis of new algorithms, and also practical implementation and 
experimental evaluation of these algorithms. Deadline: 12 November 2012.
