The Research Training Group (Graduiertenkolleg)


funded by the German Science Foundation (DFG) at the three Berlin Universities will in 2012 offer 


starting August 2012 or later, for one year (possibly extendible). We will review applications after the application deadline which is January 15, 2012.

The salary for this position on the official German TV-L Berliner Hochschulen salary scale depends on age, marital status, children, etc.

The scientific program of the MDS program treats combinatorics and discrete mathematics broadly, with an emphasis on diverse mathematical methods, such as

	Geometric Methods
	Approximation and Online Methods
	Graph Methods
	Topological and Algebraic Methods
	Enumeration Methods
	Probabilistic Methods and Extremal Combinatorics

The MDS program is a joint initiative of scientists at the three major Berlin universities,

   Freie Universität Berlin (FU),
   Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU), and
   Technische Universität Berlin (TU).

Its faculty consists of

   Prof. Susanne Albers (HU)
   Prof. Helmut Alt (FU)
   Prof. Stefan Felsner (TU) 
   Prof. Martin Grötschel (TU/ZIB) 
   Prof. Martin Grohe (HU) 
   Prof. Rolf H. Möhring (TU) 
   Prof. Günter Rote (FU)  
   Prof. Tibor Szabo (FU)
   Prof. Martin Skutella (TU, coordinator) 
   Prof. Günter M. Ziegler (FU)  

as well as adjoint and junior faculty.

The MDS course program consists of the Monday Afternoon Colloquium lectures, block courses, summer schools, regular predoc programs, etc. - all this in a very lively Berlin discrete mathematics context, which also includes the DFG Research Center MATHEON (http://www.matheon.de).

The RTG "Methods for Discrete Structures" is also a registered unit for the "Phase II" part of BERLIN MATHEMATICAL SCHOOL (www.math-berlin.de), the joint international graduate program of the three major Berlin universities.

Applications, consisting of

   - letter of application
   - curriculum vitae
   - Ph.D. thesis (preliminary version, if not finished)
   - research proposal  
   - letter of reference by thesis advisor, and possibly an additional letter
     (to be sent directly to us)

should be directed to

 Prof. Martin Skutella, Coordinator
 RTG "Methods for Discrete Structures"
 Inst. Mathematics, MA 5-2
