Within the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics (HCM) at the University of
Bonn, Professor Anne Driemel is looking to fill two postdoctoral
research positions (TV-L 13) for up to three years, starting in fall
2019 or sooner.

The research focus lies on discrete and computational geometry and its
connections to the theory of machine learning, focussing in particular
on algorithmic problems in metric spaces of curves. Depending on the
expertise of the candidate the research may involve one or more of the
following topics.

• algorithms and complexity theory
• approximation algorithms
• randomized algorithms
• metric embeddings
• locality-sensitive hashing
• multi-level partition trees
• semi-algebraic range searching
• coresets and other sublinear representations
• PAC learning and VC dimension
• combinatorial geometry
• kernel-density estimates
• forecasting and prediction

The group of Professor Anne Driemel is jointly affiliated with the HCM
and with the Institute of Computer Science at the University of Bonn.
The group maintains close collaboration with other computer science
theory groups at the university, which together form a stimulating and
supportive research environment. The successful candidate has completed
a PhD thesis in the area of theoretical computer science or a related
area in mathematics and has demonstrated independence in conducting
research and presenting scientific ideas, supported by publications in
international top-tier peer-reviewed conferences and journals.
In order to apply please do the following:

1) Send your application (motivation letter, CV, list of publications)
to Antje Bertram <bertram@cs.uni-bonn.de>. Please include the phrase
“Application for a postdoctoral position” in the subject field.

2) Arrange for two or three recommendation letters to be sent directly
to Antje Bertram <bertram@cs.uni-bonn.de>. Please ask for the phrase
