PhD positions are available in the Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) at
the Department of Computer Science, University of Warwick, UK.
The Theory and Foundations group in the department is inviting applications from
those interested 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,
* approximation algorithms,
* random structures and randomized algorithms,
* computational complexity,
* cryptography and quantum computing.
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 interested in theoretical computer science 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(s) 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 apply online by 31 March 2019
following the guidelines on the following page. Please indicate clearly
your interest in Theory and Foundations and mention one of the group
members as a potential supervisor.
You are encouraged to informally contact group members you might want to
work with prior to that.
