The Theory and Foundations group in the Department of Computer Science at the
University of Warwick, UK, is inviting applications for fully funded PhD
positions in theoretical computer science. The group works on various aspects
of theoretical computer science such as:
* automata and formal languages,
* logic and games,
* algorithmic game theory,
* online and dynamic algorithms,
* sublinear and streaming algorithms,
* parameterized complexity and structural graph theory,
* string algorithms and parallel algorithms, and
* approximation algorithms.
The group has strong ties with the Centre for Discrete Mathematics and its
Applications (DIMAP), established in 2007 jointly with Warwick Mathematics
Institute and Warwick Business School. Together with DIMAP, the group is one
of the leading theory groups in Europe, with regular publications in top
international conferences and journals in theoretical computer science.
The Department of Computer Science at Warwick offers an excellent research
environment. It was ranked 2nd in the latest UK research assessment in
Research Excellence Framework (REF) in 2014. The University of Warwick is one
of the founding members of the Alan Turing Institute.
The university campus is located on the border of two counties, West Midlands
and Warwickshire, is about one hour train ride from London, and 15 minutes
from Birmingham International Airport.
The applicants are expected to have a strong background in discrete
mathematics, algorithms, or related topics with undergraduate and/or Master’s
degrees in Computer Science, Mathematics, or related disciplines. The position
will be fully funded, and the successful applicant(s) will be receiving
a stipend at rate in line with current Research Councils UK rates.
If you are interested in this opening, please send an email (with the phrase
“Application for PhD position” in the subject line) by 01 October 2018 to
either Dr Dmitry Chistikov or Dr Sayan Bhattacharya with a short CV including names
and email addresses of 2 referees. Later applications will be considered
subject to the availability of funding.
You are encouraged to informally contact Dmitry, Sayan and/or other members of
the group you might want to work with prior to that.
We also expect to advertise further positions in the future.
Permanent members of the group:
* Sayan Bhattacharya
* Dmitry Chistikov
* Graham Cormode
* Artur Czumaj (group leader)
* Matthias Englert
* Marcin Jurdzinski
* Dan Kral
* Ranko Lazic
* Mike Paterson
* Ramanujan Sridharan
* Alex Tiskin
