The Algorithm Engineering group at the Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) invites applications for a

Ph.D. Student or Postdoctoral Researcher in Algorithms.

The research group uses methods from theoretical computer science to approach a range of algorithmic areas including artificial intelligence and network theory. As part of the privately funded School of Digital Engineering of the University of Potsdam, we engage both in teaching of outstanding and highly selected students as well as in internationally renowned research. The group and the institute is located at the beautiful Campus Griebnitzsee, at the border to Berlin, offering a vibrant scientific environment.

What we offer:

  • Inspiring research environment
  • Close collaboration with other scientists
  • Generous travel allowance
  • Modern work space in Potsdam-Babelsberg
  • Integration into an international group of researchers

What we expect:

  • An excellent master's degree in Computer Science, Mathematics or a related discipline
  • Enthusiasm for mathematical problems and scientific work
  • Enjoying teamwork and collaboration
  • PhD student applicants should have a desire to obtain a PhD within 3-4 years

Application process:

  • Postdoctoral researchers from other fields of theoretical computer science and discrete mathematics may apply as well, but should provide a one-page motivation letter detailing how they fit in the research profile of the group.
  • All applications should include a detailed CV, a copy of the (Master or PhD) thesis and a list of courses and grades.
  • Please also mention names and contact details of one or two references -- preferably one from your thesis adviser.
