PhD and Postdoc Positions in Randomized Social Choice at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany

The Technical University of Munich (Germany) is looking for a PhD student and a post-doc working in a new project on randomized social choice led by Prof. Felix Brandt.

Randomized social choice is gaining increasing attention in economics and computer science and has many applications in special domains of interest such as voting, assignment, and matching markets. The project aims at a better understanding of the axiomatic properties of randomized social choice functions using classical analytical tools from mathematics as well as computer-aided techniques including SAT solving, mixed integer programming, and computer experiments.

Applicants for the PhD position should hold a Master’s degree in computer science, mathematics, or economics, and may obtain a PhD degree in either computer science or mathematics. Applicants for the post-doc position should hold a PhD degree in one of the mentioned disciplines. The post-doc appointment is limited to one year.

The submission deadline is December 31st, 2015. For more information, see http://dss.in.tum.de/staff/brandt/2-uncategorised/217-open-positions.html.
