Research in NETWORKS focuses on stochastics and algorithmics for network problems. NETWORKS offers a highly stimulating research environment and an extensive training program for PhD students.

Recently NETWORKS was awarded a COFUND grant the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, funded by the European Commission. The grant allows NETWORKS to expand its activities by opening positions for an additional 14 PhD students.

Four positions have been filled already. In this call we are looking for 10 PhD students.

Eligibility criteriaWe are looking for enthusiastic and motivated applicants with a background in mathematics (in particular stochastics) and an affinity for computer science, or with a background in computer science (in particular algorithms) with affinity for mathematics. At the starting date of your employment as a PhD student in the NETWORKS COFUND program, you should be in possession of an MSc degree.

In order to be eligible, make sure you send your complete application before the deadline of the call. Moreover, you meet the mobility requirement of the MSCA.
