Research Associate in Computational Social Choice (2 posts)

Applications for this vacancy closed on 9 May 2019 at 12:00PM
The Department of Computer Science has a vacancy for two Research Associates
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 role involves formulating desiderata that apply to such preference
aggregation procedures, designing specific procedures that satisfy as many of
these desiderata as possible, and developing efficient algorithms for
computing them. 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.



The primary selection criteria are a PhD (or 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, as well as ongoing research activities in these areas. You
should also possess the ability to work with real-life preference data, and
contribute to software implementation, have experience of preparing
publications as a lead author, and the ability to work in a team, including
supervising Undergraduate and Masters’ projects in the group. Experience of
implementing algorithms, and a track record in computational social choice
with recent publications in EC, AAMAS, AAAI, IJCAI, or relevant economics
journals is highly desirable.



The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 9 May 2019.



Our staff and students come from all over the world and we proudly promote a
friendly and inclusive culture. Diversity is positively encouraged, through
diversity groups and champions, for example www.cs.ox.ac.uk/aboutus/women-cs-
oxford/index.html, as well as a number of family-friendly policies, such as
the right to apply for flexible working and support for staff returning from
periods of extended absence, for example maternity leave.
