We announce 

ONE PostDoc Position for 18 months 

at the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, Germany, at the Institute of 
Mathematical Logic, as part of the research project "Graph Drawing with Low Visual 
Complexity" funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The position is 
for 18 months with the chance of an extension for another 18 month. 
The project is supervised by Prof. André Schulz ( http://cs.uni-muenster.de/u/schulz ). 

The aim of the project is to develop and to evaluate new algorithms for drawing graphs
in the plane while using a small ground set of geometric objects. The 
developed algorithms will be evaluated with theoretical methods and also in 
online user studies.

We expect that the candidate has (or is very close to) a PhD in Computer Science 
or Mathematics and a solid background in discrete math and algorithms. Ideally, the 
applicant has knowledge and interest in at least one of the following fields: 

- graph drawing
- algorithms
- graph theory 
- computational geometry

Good programming skills are mandatory. Experience in statistical analysis of 
empirical data would be a plus.

Please send your applications consisting of 

- a cover letter, 
- curriculum vitae, 
- the PhD thesis (preliminary version, if not finished), 
- a letter of reference (to be directly sent to us), 


Prof. Dr. André Schulz 
Institut für Mathematische Logik und Grundlagenforschung 
Fachbereich Mathematik und Informatik der Universität Münster 
Einsteinstraße 62 
D-48149 Münster, Germany 

It is also possible to apply via email. In this case send your application as 
one single pdf-file to andre.schulz[at]uni-muenster.de . 

The deadline is September 30, but applications will be considered until the position 
is filled. 

If you have further questions about the position, please send an email 
to andre.schulz[at]uni-muenster.de .
