PhD student position in algorithmics, Amsterdam, THE NETHERLANDS

http://www.uva.nl/en/about-the-uva/working-at-the-uva/vacancies/item/14-054.html

PhD candidate in Algorithmics
Universiteit van Amsterdam
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Institute for Logic, Language and Computation

The ILLC LoCo group is looking for a PhD candidate in Algorithmics.
The position is in the area of Algorithms and Complexity and part of
the ILLC?Ts research programme in Logic and Computation.

Research topics in this area include computational complexity,
algorithms, Kolmogorov complexity, quantum computation, and (quantum)
information theory. The day-to-day guidance of the candidate will be
in the hands of Dr.L.Torenvliet. Prof.dr. H. Buhrman will act as
formal thesis advisor. Ongoing projects in the group include
investigations into structural properties of complexity classes,
parameterized complexity, and Kolmogorov complexity, but the position
is not necessarily tied to one project, and the candidate is welcome
and encouraged to bring his or her own research interests in
algorithmic subjects into the group.

Application deadline: 30 April 2014. For more information, see
http://www.uva.nl/en/about-the-uva/working-at-the-uva/vacancies/item/14-054.html.
