Project Description

The area of parameterized algorithms and complexity was launched nearly thirty years ago. Many of its deep and important theoretical results have been obtained in the last decade, and it still contains numerous unsolved and challenging problems. Parameterized algorithms are used in many applications such as bioinformatics, social choice, information access control, medicine, psychology and cognitive science, and environmental sciences.

We are looking for applicants interested in algorithms and complexity, particularly in the areas of Parameterized Complexity, Graph Theory and Graph Algorithms, Constraint Satisfaction Problems and Combinatorial Optimisation.
