Universität Rostock

The Faculty of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at the University of Rostock invites applications for a

W2 Professorship in Algorithms and Complexity

This can be ensured, for example, by working on one or more of the following topics:

• Algorithm engineering
• Parallel algorithms
• Randomized algorithms
• Constraint programming

In addition to intensive cooperation with colleagues, engagement in the profile lines of the interdisciplinary faculty of the University of Rostock is expected. With the Interdisciplinary Faculty (INF), the University of Rostock offers a structure in which interdisciplinary research finds a broad framework. The Institute for Computer Science is involved here with a wide range of activities, in particular with regard to the topic of data science.

In teaching, the job holder should take part in basic training in theoretical computer science as well as with further offers in the bachelor, master and teacher training courses in computer science and, if necessary, in teaching export.
