Open call for applications

We, the research group of Holger Dell at Frankfurt University, are inviting applications for two PhD or Postdoc positions, starting as soon as possible. We are driven by our curiosity for fundamental questions of computation and information, and we provide a friendly, open-minded, and positive social environment. Future research includes fun topics, such as algebraic graph algorithms, machine learning on graphs, applications of TCS in the sciences, algorithm engineering, circuit complexity, pseudorandomness, fine-grained and parameterized complexity. Both positions include some teaching opportunities. Teaching is important to us, and we use modern, student-centered learning approaches in our classes.
