The Theory Group at KTH Royal Institute of Technology invites applications for postdoctoral positions in SAT solving.
The postdoctoral researchers will be working in the research group of Jakob Nordstrom. Much of the activities of this research group revolve around the themes of proof complexity and SAT solving. On the practical side, some interesting problems are to gain a better understanding of the performance of current state-of-the-art SAT solvers — in particular, solvers using conflict-driven clause learning (CDCL) — and to explore techniques that would go beyond CDCL, such as approaches based on algebraic or geometric reasoning.
These are full-time employed positions for one year with a possible one-year extension. The expected start date is August-September 2016, although this is to some extent negotiable.
The application deadline is January 24, 2016. More information and instructions how to apply can be found at http://www.csc.kth.se/~jakobn/openings/D-2015-0823-Eng.php . Informal enquiries are welcome and may be sent to Jakob Nordstrom.
