PhD student position in Algorithms, Oxford, UK

Funded Doctoral Studentship in Oxford University's Department of Computer Science

(http://www.cs.ox.ac.uk/news/762-full.html)

Supervisor: Dr Stanislav Zivny
Start Date: October 2014
End Date: September 2017

PROJECT

The Algorithms Research Group is offering a fully funded D.Phil. studentship in
Oxford University's Department of Computer Science. The studentship provides an
annual stipend to the student of at least 13863 per annum for 3 years. The
studentship covers university and college fees for home/EU students. Overseas
candidates are eligible to apply but would have to find other sources of funding
for the university and college fees. There will also be provision for some
travel funds.

The position is associated with the Royal Society project "Structure of
Rational-Valued Functions on Discrete Domains", led by Stanislav Zivny. The goal
of this project is to understand the structure of separable rational-valued
functions on discrete domains that appear in the context of valued constraint
satisfaction problems.

REQUIREMENTS

The candidate is expected to have a strong background in theoretical computer
science and mathematics, in particular in computational complexity and universal
algebra, with an interest in algorithms and discrete optimisation in general.
Candidates must have good written, communication, and organisational skills, and
satisfy the usual requirements for a doctorate study at Oxford:

HOW TO APPLY

There is no deadline for applying. We will continue to process applications
until a suitable candidate is found, and candidates are therefore recommended to
apply as soon as possible.

To apply in the first instance candidates should send their CV, a transcript
with a list of courses and grades, and a motivation letter explaining why you
want this studentship, to: julie.sheppard@cs.ox.ac.uk
