PhD Studentship, Computational Social Choice, Auckland, New Zealand

A PhD scholarship (paying stipend of NZ$25,000 plus fees for 3 years) is available at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, funded by the Marsden Fund grant UOA 1420, "Axioms and algorithms for multi-winner elections” (Prof A. Slinko, Dr Mark C. Wilson, Dr G. Pritchard). We seek a well-prepared student to work on part of this project concerned with determining optimal parameters for parliamentary electoral systems. A strong background (e.g. First Class Honours/Masters) in computer science, mathematics and/or statistics is necessary.

Applicants should contact Mark Wilson () or Geoff Pritchard () as soon as possible, with a CV and cover letter. We plan for the student to start on 1 March 2015, although some variation in date is possible.
