Pre- and Post-Doctoral Positions in Algorithmic and Enumerative Combinatorics

Deadline: January 31, 2012

ARGOMENTI: International Area

The Special Research Program (SFB) "ALGORITHMIC AND ENUMERATIVE COMBINATORICS," a four-year programme (March 1, 2013 - Feb. 28, 2017) funded by the Austrian Science Foundation FWF, is offering post and pre-doctoral positions at each of its three associated research groups at the University of Vienna, at the RISC of the Johannes Kepler University Linz, and at the Vienna University of Technology.

"Algorithmic and Enumerative Combinatorics," as we understand it, is the general research area which is defined by the interplay of the fields of Enumerative Combinatorics, Analytic Combinatorics, and Algorithmics. The SFB will join the forces of the Combinatorics Group at the University of Vienna, the Algorithmic Combinatorics Group at the RISC, and the Algorithms Group at the Vienna University of Technology, in order to significantly advance our knowledge in this branch of Combinatorics and related fields.

The SFB consists of eight project parts, run by:
Michael Drmota (TU Wien)
Bernhard Gittenberger (TU Wien)
Manuel Kauers (RISC Linz)
Christian Krattenthaler (Universit"at Wien)
Peter Paule (RISC Linz)
Veronika Pillwein (RISC Linz)
Michael Schlosser (Universit"at Wien)
Carsten Schneider (RISC Linz)

For more specific information see the SFB WWW Site

We explicitly encourage female researchers to apply for the offered positions. We guarantee that the selection process, based solely on the research records, will give equal opportunities to female and male researchers.

Interested applicants should submit an application with CV, list of publications, an indication with whom the applicant would like to work (multiple choice is possible), and in addition ask 2 (for postdocs), respectively 1 (for pre-docs), people to send letters of evaluation, no later than JANUARY 31, 2013.

The application should be done using the website

Late applications will be considered until all the positions are filled.
