If you are interested in postdoc or PhD student positions in Poland, it is worth applying for the Institute of Informatics, University of Warsaw. The positions are supported by the ERC Consolidator Grant TUgbOAT: “Towards Unification of Algorithmic Tools” led by Piotr Sankowski. Usually it is one-year position with possible extension for longer period of time.
The TUgbOAT’s focus is to work on algorithms for core algorithmic problems. Example topics include:
* faster algorithms for matchings and maximum flow problems;
* optimal online algorithms (when comparing to online opt);
* analyzing structure of real world networks and exploiting it algorithmically.
The theoretical computer science group in Warsaw is strong and growing. Apart from the algorithms group specializing in parameterized and approximation algorithms (Marek Cygan, Łukasz Kowalik, Marcin Mucha, Marcin Pilipczuk, Michał Pilipczuk, Piotr Sankowski), we have also a leading research group in logic and automata (Mikołaj Bojańczyk, Bartosz Klin, Sławomir Lasota).
We are looking for outstanding candidates with a Ph.D. (or soon to obtain a Ph.D.) in Computer Science or Mathematics who have already proven their high scientific potential in the area of algorithms or graph theory through publications in proceedings of highly ranked international conferences and/or journals. Background in the specific areas of projects in question will be an advantage.
The gross annual salary is around 100,000PLN. For comparison, this translates to around twice the average salary in Poland. The position comes with a generous travel support and no teaching duties.
To apply, send a CV to Piotr Sankowski (firstname.lastname@example.org). Questions and informal inquiries are welcome.
