PhD position at LSE, London (Algorithms for Network Optimization)

An opening for a 4-year PhD position is available, working with Dr Neil Olver in the Department of Mathematics at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Topic:
The planned projects concern fundamental mathematical aspects of algorithms and discrete optimization, with a focus on problems involving the design and utilization of networks. More details on possible topics may be found at https://nolver.net/home/phd. Note that while not completely excluded, real-world applications are not a focus of this project.

The Department:
The position is in the Department of Mathematics: https://www.lse.ac.uk/Mathematics. We have a substantial Operations Research group, focusing on theoretical problems in optimization and related areas, and with close ties to both the Game Theory and Discrete Mathematics groups.

Conditions and requirements:
The position comes with an LSE studentship. More information on funding, as well as requirements, can be found at: https://www.lse.ac.uk/study-at-lse/Graduate/degree-programmes-2021/MPhilPhD-Mathematics. In addition, the position includes generous travel funding.

Application procedure:
The deadline is *April 29th*. Before making a formal application (see https://www.lse.ac.uk/study-at-lse/Graduate/degree-programmes-2021/MPhilPhD-Mathematics), we recommend potential applicants send an informal enquiry to Enfale Farooq (e.farooq@lse.ac.uk) as soon as possible. Informal enquiries should include a CV, unofficial transcripts, and (optionally) published papers, manuscripts, or dissertations.

The formal application requests a research proposal. For this application, this may be a short (approximately 1 page) discussion of a research problem, or more broadly a research area, that they find particularly interesting. This may relate to a topic mentioned on https://nolver.net/home/phd, or to previous work the candidate has done, or to anything else. It does not need to indicate a project of the scale needed to complete a PhD, and is primarily an opportunity to illustrate an appetite for research.
