PhD Position at the University of Warwick
Applications are invited for a PhD position at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Warwick. The selected candidate will be advised by Markus Brill on topics related to Computational Social Choice (e.g., multiwinner voting, proportional representation, participatory budgeting, liquid democracy, e-democracy). To get an idea about my research, please have a look at some of my recent papers.
The ideal candidate has a strong background in discrete mathematics and algorithms and some familiarity with game theory and/or social choice theory. Fluency in English is expected. Programming skills are a plus.
The University of Warwick has one of the leading Computer Science departments in the UK (ranked 4th UK computer science department in the 2021 research excellence framework). The department, particularly well-known for its research in theoretical computer science, consistently produces top quality research and has strong links with research in complex systems and mathematics for real-world applications. The successful applicant(s) will have the opportunity to work in a vibrant multiagent systems group (including, e.g., Ramanujan Sridharan, Long Tran-Thanh, and Paolo Turrini) with a strong record of publications at top-tier venues.
The expected starting date is October 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position is funded for 3.5 years according to UKRI standard rates and includes tuition fees for overseas students. Teaching is optional and paid extra.
