We announce openings for up to 2 PhD positions in structural and
algorithmic graph theory, each for 2-3 years. The positions begin both
end of 2020 and come with social security and generous travel money. The
competitive salary depends on the applicants qualification and is in the
range 66%-100% E13 (about 30.000-50.000 Euro/year gross), depending on
the applicants qualifications.
The PhD students will join the project "Resilient Broadcasting via
Independent Spanning-Trees" and be supervised by Jens M. Schmidt. The
research focus will be on structural and algorithmic graph theory, and
centers around the famous Independent Spanning Tree Conjecture.
Candidates should therefore have an excellent background in graph theory
and/or efficient algorithms. Solid English mathematical writing skills
and basic teaching experience are desirable.
Applicants should send their application until September 10th (deadline
extended due to covid-19) by email to [email protected] as a
single PDF-file containing
