PhD position in Approximation Algorithms
The Algorithms and Complexity Group of IDSIA, University of Lugano (Switzerland), opens one Ph.D. position in the area of approximation algorithms. The position is supported by the SNSF Grant "Approximation Algorithms for Network Problems", that already supports another Ph.D. student and one PostDoc.
The position is for 3 years, with the possibility of an extension by 1 year (subject to approval by SNSF). The gross salary is roughly 50.000 CHF per year (low taxes). There is generous travel support.
The ideal candidate should be bright and creative, and hold (or be close to obtaining) a Master Degree in Computer Science or related areas. A solid background in Algorithms, Computational Complexity, Discrete Mathematics, Probability Theory, and/or Graph Theory is helpful. A good knowledge of written and spoken English is also required (while knowledge of Italian is not needed).
Team members will have the opportunity to cooperate with the Algorithms and Complexity group at IDSIA, which currently consists of
8 researchers. IDSIA offers an international working environment.
Lugano is a tidy and lively town, with a wonderful view on Ceresio lake and mountains around. Ticino Canton offers many opportunities for hiking, biking, skiing, etc. Restaurants serve very good (Italian style!) food.
Any interested candidate should email a detailed CV (including a list of passed Master degree exams with marks, a list of publications, if any, and at most 3 references) to "email@example.com" as soon as possible. The position will be filled as soon as a strong candidate will apply. In order to receive full consideration, please email your CV by the end of September 2016.
