PhD student position in Algorithmic Network Theory, Imperial College
Studentship+fees to study for a PhD in Algorithmic Network Theory at Imperial College London I am actively looking for an excellent PhD candidate to work with me on problems at the frontier between graph theory, game theory and statistical physics, in particular - Random graph theory and stochastic processes (random walks, percolation, games) on graphs - Analysis of distributed Belief Propagation-type algorithms to solve combinatorial optimisation problems (bargaining, network creation..) - Distributed algorithms for computational problems on networks (control of epidemics, data aggregation, dissemination of information) The successful candidate will have a good 1st degree and ideally an MSc degree from a reputable university in Theoretical Computer Science/Discrete Mathematics, and a strong background in probability and stochastic processes. The funding covers stipend, and fees for EU/UK students together with travel fund to conferences and summer schools for the duration of the PhD. Please contact me with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org before formally applying to Imperial College London.
