PhD Project in Theory of Nature-Inspired Algorithms

Danmarks Tekniske Universitet (DTU)

Ph.d. & forskning
Storkøbenhavn

Frist 30. januar 2019

DTU Compute’s Section for Algorithms, Logic and Graphs (AlgoLoG) would like to invite applications for a 3-year PhD position starting April 1, 2019. The project is financed by the Independent Research Fund Denmark (DFF), Natural Sciences.

Project Description
The project contributes to the running time analysis of nature-inspired algorithms, a relatively young research area at the interface between theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence. The main aim of the project is to analyse the running time and to derive provably efficient parameter settings, including self-adjusting parameter schemes, for evolutionary algorithms in discrete search spaces. Such results are obtained using techniques from the analysis of randomized algorithms, probability theory and computational complexity.

Requirements
Candidates must have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS) in computer science, applied mathematics or related academic qualifications (or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master's degree). Preference will be given to candidates who can document a strong background in the theory of randomized algorithms or of nature-inspired algorithms. Furthermore, a good command of the English language is essential.

Approval and Enrolment
The scholarship for the PhD degree is subject to academic approval, and the candidate will be enrolled in the DTU Compute PhD School Programme. For information about the general requirements for enrolment and the general planning of the scholarship studies, please see the DTU PhD Guide.

Assessment
The assessment of the applicants will be made by: Associate Professor Carsten Witt and Associate Professor, Head of Section Paul Fischer.

We offer
DTU is a leading technical university globally recognized for the excellence of its research, education, innovation and scientific advice. We offer a rewarding and challenging job in an international environment. We strive for academic excellence in an environment characterized by collegial respect and academic freedom tempered by responsibility.

Salary and appointment terms

Further Information
Further information concerning the project can be obtained from Carsten Witt, cawi@dtu.dk.

Further information concerning the application is available at the DTU Compute PhD homepage or by contacting PhD coordinator Lene Matthisson +45 4525 3377.

Application

  • Application (letter of motivation)
  • CV
  • Documentation of a relevant completed M.Sc. or M.Eng.-degree
  • Course and grade list of bachelor and master degrees
  • Excel sheet with translation of grades to the Danish grading system (see guidelines and excel spreadsheet here)

Candidates may apply prior to obtaining their master's degree but cannot begin before having received it.

Applications and enclosures received after the deadline will not be considered.

All interested candidates irrespective of age, gender, race, disability, religion or ethnic background are encouraged to apply.
