Job description

We are seeking a highly motivated candidate (f/m/d) with a strong interest in network analysis algorithms to investigate interactions within collectives, in particular for the exploration of collective behaviour in immersive environments.  Successful candidates will have an MSc degree in computer science or related field and ideally already gained experience with graph algorithm development, algorithm engineering and virtual reality.

If successful, your work will likely lead to some highly relevant publications that form the basis for future broad applications across a range of disciplines.

The position is primarily targeted as a PhD study but also open to candidates on a junior postdoc level. The position will be available from January 2020 or upon agreement.

For more information on the research topic, please contact Prof. Falk Schreiber (Chair for Life Science Informatics, University of Konstanz):

Please submit your application (CV, statement of motivation and research interests, official transcripts of education certificates) in one pdf to our Online Application Portal. The deadline for applications is December 13th 2019 or until position is filled.
