Max Planck Scholarship
        for Excellent Women in Computer Science

         Max Planck Institute for Informatics
                 Saarbrcken, Germany

       Application deadline:  October 31st 2009
*****************************************************************

The Max Planck Institute for Informatics (MPI-INF) is inviting applications
from female postgraduate computer scientists for a two-year research
scholarship of up to 72,000 Euro. The MPI-INF encourages women to excel in
computer science and become active role models and leaders in the field.

The Max Planck Society (MPG) is Germany's largest society for fundamental research with more than 30 Nobel Prize winners, including Prof. Christiane Nsslein-Volhard - one of the few female Nobel Laureates. The research institutes of the Max Planck Society have a national and international reputation as Centers of Excellence for foundational research. The Max Planck Institute for Informatics is devoted to cutting-edge research in computer science and technology with a focus on algorithms and their applications in a broad sense. The research ranges from foundations (algorithms and complexity, automation of logic) to a variety of application domains (computer graphics and vision, geometric computation, program verification, database systems and internet search, and computational biology). The group of algorithms and complexity is 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 algorithm engineering and the design and implementation of algorithm libraries.

The MPI for Informatics is located on the campus of the Saarland University in Saarbrcken, Germany. The institute 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 members.

Scholars will be chosen based on the strength of their academic background and research credentials. Applications should include a resume, cover letter, publication list, short research plan (one page is enough), and two references. Please refer to MPI-INF Scholarship in your application. The MPI for Informatics strives to provide a family-friendly work environment with ptions for day care of smaller children and other means of support for working mothers.

Send applications until October 31st 2009 via Email to csscholar@mpi-inf.mpg.de
