POSTDOCS and PHD STUDENTS

for the Algorithms and Complexity Department

directed by Kurt Mehlhorn

We are looking for applicants from all areas of algorithmics, including 
related areas like computer algebra, complexity theory, and discrete 
mathematics. We are also explicitly looking for people interested in 
computational geometry and topology, algorithm engineering and the design 
and implementation of algorithm libraries.

The Max-Planck-Institute for Computer Science is located on the campus of 
the Universitaet des Saarlandes in Saarbruecken, Germany. Currently, 
around 40 researchers from several nationalities work in the Algorithms 
and Complexity Department. Our working language is English. The group 
collaborates with several of the major research institutions in Europe and 
the U.S. and has high international visibility. There is generous travel 
support available for all group members. Ph.D. positions are for three 
years (the initial contract will be for two years), while postdoctoral 
fellowships are available for one or two years. Conditions for postdocs 
depend on the qualifications of the applicants.

Applications from disabled applicants are appreciated. Our institute 
supports the principle of equal opportunity for men and women, and is 
therefore interested in applications from women.

Applications must be sent by email in PDF format to d1-office  
mpi-inf.mpg.de by January 31, 2013, specifying clearly whether the 
application is for a PhD or for a postdoc position. Applications must 
include a curriculum vitae, list of grades and the names of three 
references with their e-mail addresses. Postdoc applications should 
additionally include a research plan (1 page is enough), intended period 
of stay, and your two most "interesting" papers (preferably just URLs).
