Applications for this vacancy closed on 7 August 2015 at 12:00PM
<div xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <p>Fixed-term contracts for up to 2 years, with the possibility of extension.</p> <p>We are seeking two research assistants to join the ERC-funded Project 'Algorithms for complex Collective Decisions of Structured Domains' (ACCORD), led by Professor Edith Elkind. This project aims to develop new tools and methodologies for making complex group decisions in rich and structured environments. The project will aim to formulate desiderata that apply to such preference aggregation procedures, to design specific procedures that satisfy as many of these desiderata as possible, and to develop efficient algorithms for computing them. As a research assistant on this project, you will be expected to manage your own research and administrative activities which will include small scale project management, as well as collaborate in the preparation of research papers for publication in conferences and journals.</p> <p>You will have a PhD or be very close to completion, in a relevant area of science (which could be computer science, mathematics, economics or operations research) together with a documented track record of completing research projects in the area of algorithms, complexity, social choice, multi-agent systems, or operations research as witnessed by published peer-reviewed work. You will possess excellent communication skills and be able to work both independently and as part of a collaborative team.</p> <p>The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 7 August 2015.
