Fakultät II - Institut für Mathematik / FG Algebraische und Geometrische Methoden in der Datenanalyse

Wiss. Mit­ar­bei­ter*in (d/m/w) - 75 % Arbeits­zeit - Ent­gelt­gruppe 13 TV-L Ber­li­ner Hoch­schu­len

The position is part of the Combinatorial Synergies (SPP 2458) project "Combinatorial Methods for Learning Max-Linear Bayesian Networks". This position is co-supervised by Prof. Dr. Carlos Enrique Améndola Cerón (TU Berlin) and Benjamin Hollering, Ph.D. (TU Munich). Funding will be available for travel opportunities between Berlin and Munich. This research project involves synergies between combinatorics, in particular graph theory and tropical geometry, and statistics. In particular, it is focused on developing new combinatorial algorithms which can be used to reconstruct graphs which represent causal relationships between extreme events.

Please send your application with the reference number and the usual documents (all combined in a single pdf file, max 5 MB)
