Pre- & Post-Doctoral positions in Algorithmic and Enumerative Combinatorics

The Special Research Program (SFB) “ALGORITHMIC AND ENUMERATIVE COMBINATORICS,” a four-year programme (March 1, 2017 – Feb. 28, 2021) funded by the Austrian Science Foundation FWF, is offering post- and pre-doctoral positions at each of its five associated research groups at the University of Vienna, at the Johannes Kepler University Linz (JKU),
at the Vienna University of Technology, and at the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Linz.

“Algorithmic and Enumerative Combinatorics,” as we understand it, is the general research area which is defined by the interplay of the fields of Enumerative Combinatorics, Analytic Combinatorics, and Algorithmics. The SFB joins the forces of the Combinatorics Group at the University of Vienna, the Combinatorics and Algorithms Group at the Vienna University
of Technology, and the joint Symbolic Combinatorics Group in Linz formed by the RISC and the Institute for Algebra at the Johannes Kepler University Linz, and the RICAM at the Austrian Academy of Sciences, in order to significantly advance our knowledge in this branch of Combinatorics and related fields.

The SFB consists of nine project parts, run by:

  • Michael Drmota (TU Wien)
  • Ilse Fischer (Universit\”at Wien)
  • Bernhard Gittenberger (TU Wien)
  • Manuel Kauers (Institute for Algebra, JKU)
  • Christoph Koutschan (RICAM Linz)
  • Christian Krattenthaler (Universit\”at Wien)
  • Peter Paule (RISC, JKU)
  • Veronika Pillwein (RISC, JKU)
  • Carsten Schneider (RISC, JKU)

For more specific information see the SFB WWW Site

We explicitly encourage female researchers to apply for the offered positions. We guarantee that the selection process, based solely on the research records, will give equal opportunities to female and male researchers.

Interested applicants should submit an application with CV, list of publications, an indication with whom the applicant
would like to work (multiple choice is possible), and in addition ask 2 (for postdocs), respectively 1 (for pre-docs),
people to send letters of evaluation, no later than JANUARY 31, 2017.

The application should be done using the website

Late applications will be considered until all the positions are filled.
