Fully-funded PhD position in Smart City Algorithms/Game Theory

The Institute of Algorithms and Complexity at TUHH: Hamburg University of Technology (www.algo.tuhh.de) in Hamburg, Germany offers an exciting opportunity to work in a PhD program at the forefront of algorithms and computer sciences.

The position is within sharing.city.college, the Hamburg Graduate School for Data-Driven Smart Cities (https://ahoi.digital/sharing-city-college/). The successful candidate will work with other talented graduates with strong computing background on pursuing a doctoral project which focuses on studying or designing data-centered participatory smart cities, including smart city infrastructures, systems, and services. 

The focus is on algorithms/algorithmic game theory and offers the chance to develop new algorithmic approaches to the future of energy trading, and the smart grid. The new algorithms will build on advanced methods from game theory, combinatorial optimization, mathematical programming, (mixed-)integer programming, approximation algorithms and fixed-parameter tractability.

The position is fully-paid and offered with an employment contract for 3 years. It comes with social security and generous travel money. We provide close supervision and support by a panel of established professors and scientists. Transferable skills and career development are an integral part of the program.

An excellent Master degree in Computer Science, (Applied) Mathematics, Operations Research, Engineering or related field is required. Affinity with optimization, algorithms, complexity theory, or discrete mathematics is preferred. The salary of the position is determined according to level TV-L E-13 of the German public sector. The exact amount of salary depends on experience, family circumstances, tax classification and other factors. Travel funding is available, for attending conferences and workshops, and visiting other researchers. Interested individuals should apply using the official application portal of the vacancy: https://stellenportal.tuhh.de/jobposting/227a866384f1a3bfe8a423f549bf5dc22fb64248.

Applications should be submitted in English. Applications received by 17 February 2021 will receive full consideration. Applications should include a curriculum vitae, a letter of motivation, names and a detailed list of university courses with grades. If the candidate wishes, he or she may provide contact information of one or two letter writers who are acquainted with the applicant's previous academic activity. Any questions regarding the position should be directed to Matthias Mnich (matthias.mnich(at)tuhh.de).
