Postdoc Position at Padova University

The constraint reasoning group of the University of Padova (Italy), led by prof. Francesca Rossi, is looking for a motivated Postdoc fellow to work on constraint issues related to "Modelling and solving soft constraint problems with incompleteness, imprecision, and instability". Relevant research topics include preference reasoning, decision making under uncertainty, sensitivity and risk analysis, parameter assessment, preference elicitation, and multi-agent preference reasoning.

The candidate should hold a PhD or equivalent qualification. A good track record in constraint related research is desirable.

The appointment will be initially for two years, but it can be renewed for another two years subject to satisfactory performance and available funds.

The constraint reasoning group of the University of Padova is an active research group working on several aspects of constraint programming and multi-agent preference aggregation. Current topics of interest include, but are not limited to, soft constraints, preference modelling, preference elicitation, multi-agent preference aggregation, computational social choice, stable matching.
