Research will be supervisioned by Prof. Francisco César Polcino Milies, in research on “Group Algebras and Coding Theory’’, with focus in topics such as: Codes in semisimple group algebras, essential idempotents in relevant cases and the determination of codes with best possible weights, study of other types of codes (constacyclic, twisted and skew) from extensions of the structure of group algebras. Candidates are expected to have an excelent history of graduate studies, with a PhD in Algebraic Coding Theory, obtained no longer than seven years ago (or expect to complete a PhD prior to the beginning of the scholarship) and experience in the area of the project evidenced through recent publications.
