Dear all,

Two PhD positions are available in the Algorithms & Complexity group of 
Yannic Maus (https://academia.yannicmaus.de/) at TU Graz, Austria. The 
group has a broad interest in algorithms and complexity, currently with 
a strong focus on modern models of computation such as distributed and 
massively parallel computing.

Who are we looking for?
Are you particularly attracted by algorithmic and/or combinatorial 
questions? Are you also fascinated by the possibilities of future 
computer applications that will be built on top of various forms of 
large-scale networks and highly parallel systems? Ideally, you have a 
strong background in computer science or a related field. We expressly 
encourage students from maths to apply if they are interested in 
algorithmic questions and/or like graphs. A background in distributed or 
parallel algorithms is not necessary.

What we offer:
All positions are fully funded and come with excellent working 
conditions, such as a competitive salary, social security, 25 days of 
vacation, and  travel support. The group is located at the vibrant and 
strongly growing faculty of computer science and biomedical engineering, 
providing the potential for collaborations within TU Graz. Additionally, 
the group has established strong ties to several leading research groups 
at TU Graz, across Austria, Europe, and beyond. For example, we have 
ongoing collaborations with groups in Germany, Finland, Iceland and 
Israel. While it is not formally required, we strongly encourage and 
support international collaborations and international research visits. 
Participation in teaching is encouraged (at most one day a week), but 
not required. The starting dates of the positions are flexible 
(optimally starting in early summer 2023). Knowledge of German is not 

Graz is known for its quality of life, a large amount of sunshine and 
excellent food. With the Alps in the north, vineyards in the south,  and 
Slovenia and Croatia being close it offers ample close-by opportunities 
for leisure activities and vacation. With 300.000 inhabitants Graz is 
Austria's second largest city with a thriving cultural life to which 
also the more than 50.000 students contribute. The cost of living (in 
particular renting an apartment) is significantly cheaper than in other 
European cities.

An inclusive environment and balancing family and career are important 
aspects to the group and the university. We encourage women to apply.

Applications including
- a short cover letter indicating your interest in algorithms and 
pursueing a PhD,
- a full curriculum vitae,
- your Master's thesis,
- study manuscript (together with grades), and
- other relevant documents (e.g., recommendation letters),
should be sent electronically to Assistant Professor Yannic Maus 
([log in to unmask]), if possible as a single pdf file. Our mail 
system most likely refuses files other than .pdf files. If you have any 
questions, don't hesitate to contact Yannic Maus. Informal inquiries are 

We will accept applications until the positions are filled. However, for 
full consideration, please submit your application by February 28, 2023.
