Open positions

Fully-funded PhD position (3 years)

The research unit “Algorithms, Dynamics, and Information Flow in Networks” (ADYN) is inviting applications for a PhD or Postdoc position, starting as soon as possible. The research is going to be carried out at Goethe University Frankfurt under the supervision of Holger Dell in collaboration with other ADYN members.


The project has the title “Parameterized Complexity of Network Dynamics”, and is about dynamic processes on graphs, such as virus, or fake news, spreading through a social network. During the project, you will learn, develop and employ mathematically provable analysis techniques for such processes. The goals are to analyze dynamic processes based on structural parameters of the graphs, to determine the parameterized and fine-grained complexity of inference and influence problems for such processes, and to develop techniques to study dynamic processes on temporal graphs.
