30 Jun 2019 A postdoc position in Algorithmic Game Theory

Toggle description

A Postdoctoral Research Fellow position in the area of the Algorithmic Game Theory is available for one year. The start date can be negotiated for the right candidate.

The position is in connection with an EPSRC research grant of Dr Marcin Jurdzinski and Prof Ranko Lazic on Solving Parity Games in Theory and Practice. Parity games are an intriguing problem class, because they are simple to state and have proven to be resistant to countless attempts to classify their complexity. At the same time, algorithms for solving parity games play a paramount role in model checking, satisfiability checking, and synthesis. The main objective of the post is to pursue cutting-edge research on algorithms and solvers for parity games, as well as mean payoff, discounted payoff, and simple stochastic games.

You will have a strong background in Theoretical Computer Science, with a specialisation in Algorithmic Game Theory, Automata Theory or Model Checking. You will have (or expect to obtain shortly) a PhD in the relevant area. You should provide with your application form a CV, including a list of publications, a research statement, and a short statement highlighting your suitability for this post.

You will be formally based in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Warwick, and you will be associated with the Centre for Discrete Mathematics and its Applications (DIMAP, and the Division of Theory and Foundations ( at the University of Warwick. The project will be collaborative with Prof Sven Schewe, Dr John Fearnley and Dr Dominik Wojtczak at the University of Liverpool.

14 Jun 2019 Postdoc position in Theoretical Computer Science

Toggle description

The Department of Computer Science at Lund University invites applications for a postdoctoral position in theoretical computer science.

The postdoctoral researcher will be working in the research group of Jakob Nordström. Much of the activities of this research group revolve around the themes of efficient algorithms for satisfiability in propositional logic (SAT solving) and lower bounds on the efficiency of methods for reasoning about SAT (proof complexity). Examples of theoretical questions of interest are analyzing proof systems formalizing the computational power of Gröbner bases (polynomial calculus) and integer linear programming (cutting planes), and proving stronger lower bound in the hierarchy of Frege proof systems. Another interesting area is the use of linear and semidefinite programming to solve hard combinatorial problems and of proof complexity to establish when problems are beyond the reach of such methods. Problems of the kind above have turned out to have deep, and sometimes surprising, connections to other topics such as, e.g., circuit complexity, communication complexity, and hardness of approximation, and therefore researchers in these or other related areas are more than welcome to apply.

Within the overall framework sketched above, the postdoc will be expected and encouraged to contribute to and influence the research agenda. Taking part in teaching graduate seminar courses is encouraged but not required. Travel funding is included, and the group also receives short-term and long-term visitors on a regular basis.

This postdoc position is a full-time employed position for one year with a possible (and expected) one-year extension. The expected starting date is in August-September 2019, although this is to some extent negotiable.

The application deadline is June 14, 2019. See for the full announcement with more information and instructions for how to apply. Informal enquiries are welcome and may be sent to

Project 5: Benders Decomposition for Convex Mixed-Integer Nonlinear Optimisation
Host institution: University of Bologna, Italy
Supervisors: Michele Monaci, Enrico Malaguti
Decomposition methods, such as Benders and Dantzing-Wolfe decompositions, are one of the common algorithmic techniques to solve large-scale linear and mixed-integer linear optimisation problems. In particular, Benders decomposition is typically the tool of choice for the solution of two stage stochastic optimisation problems, arising in a very large number of applications characterized by some uncertainty in the data (e.g., demand forecasts, prices, etc.). However, there is little literature and no generic (i.e., not problem tailored) approach to apply these decomposition techniques in the context of mixed-integer nonlinear optimisation.

Our objective is to study possible extensions of decomposition methods such as Benders and Dantzig-Wolfe to the solution of mixed-integer nonlinear optimisation problems. Within the project, the ESR will work on management applications where resources need to be taken into account in a stochastic fashion, as it happens, in the energy industry and in transportation management and scheduling.

Expected Results: Library of applications for MINO featuring a decomposition structure (with emphasis on stochastic optimisation), extension of Benders/Dantzig-Wolfe decomposition to convex mixed-integer optimisation problems with quadratic constraints and/or objective, prototypical software implementations and their validation (see WP3), extensions to more general nonlinear problems.

Hosting Institution: UNIBO is the second largest University in Italy and one of the most active in research and technology transfer. It stands among the most important institutions of higher education in EU with 87,000 enrolled students, 2,857 Academic staff, 1,198 post- docs and 1,606 PhDs.

This project will be hosted by the Department of Electrical, Electronic and Information Engineering "Guglielmo Marconi” (DEI). The DEI department consists of around 120 scientists, whose research and education activities cover the following fields of Industrial and Information Engineering: Automation, Bioengineering, Electric Drives and Systems, Electrical and Electronic Measurements, Electrical Engineering, Electromagnetic Fields, Electronics, Operations Research and Telecommunications. DEI offers one Undergradlate and three gradlate international programmes taught in English, as well as five Undergradlate and six graduate programmes taught in Italian. The Department offers also four international Ph.D. programmes. The Operations Research group at DEI has an internationally-recognized visibility in the design and implementation of models and algorithms for mathematical programming optimization problems, as witnessed by the record of publications of the members of the group. The group has also been involved in many industrial projects arising from applications in transportation, logistics, energy production, telecommunications and engineering.
