PhD student position (2y) in computational models over the real numbers, GERMANY


Contact: meer@informatik.tu-cottbus.de

Cottbus (Germany)

At the Faculty Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Computer Science of the Brandenburg University of 
Technology in Cottbus, in the Professorship of Theoretical Computer Science (Prof. Dr. K. Meer) the
following position is to be filled as soon as possible:

Scientific Assistant

temporary limited for 2 years; E 13 TV-L reference number: 35/11

Description of tasks: The position is a third-party funded project position financed by the German 
Science Foundation DFG. It is devoted to the study of interactive and probabilistically checkable 
proofs in computational models over the real numbers. Starting point are the well-known 
characterizations of complexity classes like PSPACE and NP by such proof systems in the Turing 
model. In the project it should be investigated in how far comparable characterizations exist in 
uncountable structures like the real numbers and related computational models. This in particular 
is interesting in relation to approximability questions. The position includes the possibility to 
work towards a PhD degree.

Requirements: Diploma or Master of Science degree or Bachelor of Science with permission for a PhD 
track in Computer Science or Mathematics. Solid knowledge of theoretical computer science, and here
in particular of complexity theory and/or the theory of approximation algorithms. Ideally the 
successful candidate has already some knowledge about real number models and/or the PCP theorem. 
Interest to do research.

BTU Cottbus welcomes an increase in the share of women and encourages qualified female scientists 
to apply.

Disabled applicants are preferred if all other qualifications are equal. 
The application, under reference number and enclosing stamped addressed envelope, should be sent 
within a period of 4 weeks after publishing this job advertisement to:

Dekan der Fakultt Mathematik, Naturwissenschaften und Informatik, BTU Cottbus, Postfach 101344, 
03013 Cottbus. For further details please contact Prof.Dr. K.Meer, email:meer@informatik.tu-cottbus.de
