PhD position in Mathematics

Department of Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics, Umeå university | Umeå, Sweden

Classification: Mathematics

The Department of Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics at Umeå University is opening a PhD position in mathematics, with a focus on discrete mathematics. The position covers four years of third-cycle studies, including participation in research and third-cycle courses. The last day to apply is February 7, 2023. Project description and tasks: The PhD student will carry out research within discrete mathematics, as part of a Swedish Research Council-funded project with a focus on the Traveling Salesman Problem and will be supervised by Gerold Jäger. The aim of the project is the development of novel algorithms for the Traveling Salesman Problem and will include both practical implementations of heuristic algorithms based on sensitivity analysis and theoretical research. Currently, the research group in discrete mathematics consists of 18 persons. The group is very active and has a weekly seminar, different workshops, and a frequent flow of visitors and international collaborators. We have several PhD students and postdocs. Our research covers a wide range of areas and touches upon extremal, probabilistic, algorithmic, game theoretic, computational, topological, geometric and algebraic combinatorics.
