The Research Training Group (Graduiertenkolleg)
METHODS FOR DISCRETE STRUCTURES
funded by the German Science Foundation (DFG) at the three Berlin Universities will in 2012 offer
one POSTDOC POSITION (E13 TV-L)
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
Approximation and Online Methods
Topological and Algebraic 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. 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
