Technical University of Munich

A PhD or postdoc position is available in the research group of Prof. Martin Bichler (http://dss.in.tum.de) at the Technical University of Munich, Germany. 

We are looking for candidates with a strong interest in interdisciplinary research at the intersection of computer science, economics, and operations research. The main research themes of the group are market design and optimization. In a new project, we explore AI techniques (self-play, neural networks) for learning equilibrium strategies in games and markets. Therefore, we look for applications with an interest in both, game theory and machine learning. Programming skills are a plus. Fluency in written and spoken English is required. 

Applicants for the PhD position should hold a Master’s degree in computer science, operations research and management science, or mathematics and may obtain a PhD degree in computer science. Applicants for the post-doc position should hold a PhD degree in one of the mentioned disciplines. The position has sufficient travel money available to support conference and workshop attendance. Prospective candidates will assist in teaching courses of the group (dss.in.tum.de).

The position is for 2 years with the possibility of extension. The starting date is negotiable; we are interested in filling the position as soon as possible. The position is full-time and paid according to salary grade 100% TV-L E 13 (the standard rate for junior scientific staff at German universities). As an equal opportunity employer, TUM explicitly encourages applications from women and all others who would bring additional diversity dimensions to the university
