Postdoctoral Position

Within the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics (HCM) at the University of Bonn, Professor Anne Driemel is looking to fill two postdoctoral research positions (TV-L 13) for up to three years, starting in fall 2019 or sooner.

The research focus lies on discrete and computational geometry and its connections to the theory of machine learning, focussing in particular on algorithmic problems in metric spaces of curves. Depending on the expertise of the candidate the research may involve one or more of the following topics.

  • algorithms and complexity theory
  • approximation algorithms
  • randomized algorithms
  • metric embeddings
  • locality-sensitive hashing
  • multi-level partition trees
  • semi-algebraic range searching
  • coresets and other sublinear representations
  • PAC learning and VC dimension
  • combinatorial geometry
  • kernel-density estimates
  • forecasting and prediction

The group of Professor Anne Driemel is jointly affiliated with the HCM and with the Institute of Computer Science at the University of Bonn. The group maintains close collaboration with other computer science theory groups at the university, which together form a stimulating and supportive research environment.

The successful candidate has completed a PhD thesis in the area of theoretical computer science or a related area in mathematics and has demonstrated independence in conducting research and presenting scientific ideas, supported by publications in international top-tier peer-reviewed conferences and journals.

In order to apply please do the following:

1) Send your application (motivation letter, CV, list of publications) to Antje Bertram <>. Please include the phrase “Application for a postdoctoral position” in the subject field.

2) Arrange for two or three recommendation letters to be sent directly to Antje Bertram <>. Please ask for the phrase “Recommendation letter for [ your name ]” to be included in the subject field.

The University of Bonn is committed to diversity and equal opportunity. We aim to increase the proportion of women in areas where women are underrepresented and to promote their careers in particular. We therefore strongly encourage women with relevant qualifications to apply. Applications will be handled in accordance with the Landesgleichstellungsgesetz (State Equality Act). Applications from suitable individuals with a certified serious disability and those of equal status are particularly welcome.

The application deadline is 31 January 2019.

Applications received before this deadline will receive full consideration. Applications received after the deadline might be considered if the position is still vacant.
