Qualification Details

You must have a two-year master's degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master's degree, by the time of enrolment. You must have a strong background in algorithms or graph theory, including advanced courses on the topics of theoretical algorithms and/or graph theory. The ideal candidate has worked on topics related to the project during their bachelor’s and master’s programme, including larger projects such as master’s and/or bachelor’s theses, and has, ideally, made progress that is either publishable or already published.

Responsibilities/Job Description

We invite applications for a PhD in the area of algorithms, geometry and graphs. The PhD takes place at the AlgoLoG section, DTU Compute; a section devoted to the study of algorithms, graph theory, and theoretical computer science.

Responsibilities and tasks You will engage in the pursuit of new geometric and/or graph theoretic insights and apply them to develop new efficient algorithms and data structures. The research is in collaboration with the PhD adviser, associate professor Eva Rotenberg, who has a broad background in discrete algorithms theory, including geometry and graph algorithms.Together, we will approach questions relating to graphs, geometry, and algorithms, broadly, and questions on the border between geometry and graph algorithms, specifically. Possible directions include: algorithms and data structures for planar graphs, intersection graphs, or geometrically embedded graphs; theory and algorithms for graph drawing; and algorithms for computer graphics and geometry processing.The intended scientific output from this project may include pure theory of algorithms, or a combination of theory and practice; in either case, it is imperative that the candidate has a strong theoretical background within algorithms or graph theory. The position is financed by the PhD adviser’s Carlsberg Foundation project "Graph Algorithms with Geometric Applications". This project runs alongside the PhD adviser’s Villum Young Investigator project "Efficient Recomputations for Changeful Problems" and Independent Research Fund Denmark project "Dynamic Network Analysis". Furthermore, the AlgoLoG section and the university department have many related projects on algorithms, complexity, graph theory, and computer graphics. We aim to provide a scientifically stimulating environment for the PhD student, and hope the PhD student will engage in scientific discussions and collaborations with the researchers around them.The grant finances participation in conferences, meetings, and workshops when relevant.
