Postdoctoral position in complexity theory, HUNGARY


Budapest (Hungary)

Postdoc positions are available at the Computer and Automation Research Institute (Hungarian 
Academy of Sciences), Budapest, Hungary, supported by the European Research Council (ERC) 
Starting Grant PARAMTIGHT: "Parameterized complexity and the search for tight complexity results" 
held by Dniel Marx. The goal of the project is to systematically push the boundaries of 
algorithmic and hardess results, mostly in the framework of parameterized complexity, with 
the aim of obtaining tight results that give an optimal understanding of the complexity of 
a problem.

The candidates should have a PhD degree in Computer Science or related area; research experience 
at postdoctoral level is of advantage. A successful candidate should have excellent knowledge of 
algorithms and/or complexity, preferably in the setting of parameterized complexity and
fixed-parameter tractability. Strong background in graph theory, combinatorics, constraint 
satisfaction, approximation, or kernelization is of advantage.

The earliest starting date is January 2012. The review of applicants will begin immediately and 
continue until the positions are filled. 

Applications received by 1 November 2012 will receive full consideration. 
Informal inquires by email are welcome.
