PhD positions

PhD positions are administered through the Graduate School of Science and Technology (GSST) and are called for four times a year (February, May, August and November). The PhD positions include full tuition waiver and a very competitive scholarship. Applications are welcomed from students with at least three years of full-time study. Students with a strong background in the design and analysis of algorithms will be preferred. Students with background in databases and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are also very welcome to apply.

Postdoc positions

MADALGO postdoc positions at the level of Research Assistant Professor of Computer Science are initially for one year, but can be extended with an additional year by mutual consent. MADALGO welcomes postdoctoral researchers with clearly demonstrated experience and skills in the design and analysis of algorithms and data structures. Researchers with experience with I/O-efficient, cache-oblivious or streaming algorithms, as well as with implementation of such algorithms (algorithm engineering experience), or with experience in design and implementation of indexing structures, are preferred. The responsibilities of MADALGO postdocs include work on algorithms for massive dataset problems in collaboration with center researchers, along with modest teaching responsibilities.
