PhD scholarship in "Methods for Discrete Structures", GERMANY


Contact: martin.skutella@tu-berlin.de

Berlin (Germany)

The Research Training Group (Graduiertenkolleg)

 	METHODS FOR DISCRETE STRUCTURES (MDS)
 	http://www3.math.tu-berlin.de/MDS/

funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) at the three Berlin Universities will offer a

 	SCHOLARSHIP

for Ph.D. Studies starting January 1, 2012 or later.

The MDS program covers topics at the interface between algorithms, combinatorics, geometry, 
probability, and optimization. The MDS faculty consists of Susanne Albers, Helmut Alt, Stefan 
Felsner, Martin Groetschel, Martin Grohe, Rolf Moehring, Guenter Rote, Martin Skutella, Tibor 
Szabo, and Guenter Ziegler.

The scholarships are 1468 EUR (tax-free) per month - according to DFG rules. They are usually 
granted as 2-year fellowships, extendible by a third year.

The MDS course program consists of the Monday Afternoon Colloquium lectures, block courses, 
summer schools, regular predoc programs, etc. - all this in a very lively Berlin discrete 
mathematics context, which also includes the DFG Research Center MATHEON (http://www.matheon.de).

The RTG "Methods for Discrete Structures" is also a registered unit for the "Phase II" part of 
BERLIN MATHEMATICAL SCHOOL (http://www.math-berlin.de), the joint international graduate program 
of the three major Berlin universities - which has a lot to offer! Students of the MDS program 
may apply to be members of the BERLIN MATHEMATICAL SCHOOL.

Applicants for Ph.D. scholarships are expected to have a Diploma/Master's degree or equivalent, 
usually in Mathematics or Computer Science. Applications for scholarships starting in 2012 
consisting of

- letter of application
- curriculum vitae
- Diplom/masters' thesis
- proposal for possible thesis topic
- recommendation letter by thesis advisor (to be sent directly to us)

should be directed to
