Job openings relevant to algorithmic game theory, Netherlands
Below are two job opening at CWI relevant to those interested in algorithmic game theory: Postdoc position at CWI, Amsterdam, the Netherlands The Algorithms, Combinatorics and Optimization group (PNA1) at the Centre for Mathematics and Computer Science (CWI) in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, has an open position for a postdoc for a period of one year in the area of (preferably algorithmic) mechanism design. The position has to be filled by the end of this year. Research will take place in the nationally funded project ``Distributed Implementations of Adaptive Collective Decision Making'' (DIACoDeM). The project employs three postdocs from three groups at CWI: PNA1, Coordination Languages (SEN3) and Computational Intelligence and Multi-agent Games (SEN4). Further information about the project can be obtained from Prof. Krzysztof R. Apt, firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about the research carried out in the PNA1 group see under http://www.cwi.nl/org. Applicants are expected to have a proven research experience in mechanism design and/or theory of strategic games. Terms of employment The salary and terms of employment are in accordance with the ``CAO-onderzoekinstellingen" and are based on qualifications. Moreover, CWI offers attractive working conditions, including flexibility and initial help with housing for foreigners. Information and application Applications, mentioning ``DIACoDeM Project", with enclosures a curriculum vitae, a list of publications and a list of references should be send by March 15th, 2007 to K.R. Apt, email@example.com. -------------- Tenure track position in algorithmic game theory within the group 'Algorithms, Combinatorics and Optimization' of the CWI Department 'Probability, Networks and Algorithms'. The applicant is an independent researcher with a demonstrated record of international top-quality fundamental research in algorithmic game theory. The applicant also has the intention and ability to search for project funding, and to eventually build up a research group. CWI is the national research institute for mathematics and computer science in the Netherlands. CWI performs frontier research in mathematics and computer science and transfers new knowledge in these fields to society in general and trade and industry in particular. CWI recently presented as its strategy for the coming years to concentrate its efforts on four socially relevant themes. One of them is "Societal Logistics" in which algorithmic game theory takes a central position. The research group 'Algorithms, Combinatorics and Optimization' performs fundamental and applied research in combinatorics, optimization, algorithmics and complexity. Focal points include combinatorial optimization, integer and semidefinite programming, graph and matroid theory, networks, computational molecular biology, geometric and algebraic techniques in combinatorics and, more recently, algorithmic game theory. The vacant position is also created in the context of the national research network 'DIAMANT', which stands for "Discrete, Interactive, and Algorithmic Mathematics, Algebra and Number Theory". This includes research groups at three Dutch universities and at the CWI. Terms of employment The vacancy concerns a tenure-track position, with an initial appointment of three years. Depending on the candidate's experience, different terms of appointment can be discussed. The salary and terms of employment are in accordance with the "CAO-onderzoekinstellingen" and are based on qualifications. Moreover, CWI offers attractive working conditions, including flexibility and initial help with housing for foreigners. Information and application Please send your application to the following address: Prof.dr.ir. Bert Gerards Head of CWI Department 'Probability, Networks and Algorithms' & Coordinator Societal Logistics E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Centrum voor Wiskunde en Informatica P.O. Box 94079 1090 GB Amsterdam The Netherlands You can also contact him for further information on this position. An application should consist of a cover letter, a research statement, a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, and the names of three references. There is no deadline for applications. We will evaluate the applications at regular time intervals as they come in. The position will remain open until a suitable candidate has been found.
