Funded PhD student positions at the University of Salzburg, Austria

Two funded PhD student positions are available in the research group "Efficient Algorithms" headed by Prof. Dr. Robert Elsässer at the University of Salzburg. The earliest starting date is December 1st, 2012; a later starting date can be negotiated. PhD positions are usually for 4 years. Depending on the candidate's qualification and experience, the first contract may be limited to 2 years with the possibility of extension for another 2 years.

The first position is in the field of theoretical and empirical analysis of real world networks. The successful candidate should also work on the design of new graph models, which can properly approximate the structural properties of these networks. A Master's degree (orequivalent) in Computer Science or a related discipline is required. The candidate should have some experience in parallel programming. Basic knowledge in randomized algorithms and experience in data mining and/or machine learning is a plus.

The second position is in the field of design and analysis of algorithms for fundamental problems in large networks. The successful candidate is expected to analyze the behavior of various information dissemination algorithms as well as of different interacting algorithmic processes in these networks. A Master's degree (or equivalent) in Computer Science, Mathematics, or a related discipline is required. The candidate should have some basic knowledge in the field of parallel/distributed algorithms. Further knowledge in the field of randomized algorithms is a plus.

Informal inquiries can be sent to robert.elsaesser@sbg.ac.at.

Applications (CV, application letter, transcript of records) for the first position - reference number GZ A 0132/1-2012 (to be included) - have to be sent by October 10, 2012 to

Rektor der Universitat Salzburg
Univ. Prof. Dr. Heinrich Schmidinger
