Marie Curie Scholarships

Marie-Curie-Scholarships for

Ph.D. students

are available for a 3 to 4 month stay in Berlin. The latest starting date is October 28, 2005, since our Marie Curie Program ends on January 28, 2006.

In connection with our European Graduate Program "Combinatorics, Geometry, and Computation" we became a Marie Curie Training Site. We can support young researchers pursuing doctoral studies and providing them with the possibility of undertaking part of their doctoral studies in a country other than their own (see below for a list of admitted countries). Applicants must already have an advisor and a dissertation project in mathematics, computer science, or a related area at their home university.

The Marie Curie Training Site is a joint initiative of the three universities of Berlin - Free University, Technical University, Humboldt-University - and the Konrad-Zuse-Research Center. The amount of the scholarship is 1200,00 Euro per month.

The scientific program ranges from theoretical fundamentals to applications. The areas of research are combinatorics, geometry, optimization, algorithms and computation. During their stay the students are supervised by the professors Aigner, Alt, Rote, Schulz (FU), Felsner, Möhring, Ziegler (TU), Prömel (HU) and Grötschel (ZIB).

Applications (preferably electronic applications) with curriculum vitae, copies of certificates, publications, a letter of recommendation of the advisor and a brief description of the status of the dissertation project should be sent to:

Prof. Dr. Helmut Alt
Institut für Informatik
Freie Universität Berlin
Takustraße 9
D-14195 Berlin
or by e-mail to:   alt@inf.fu-berlin.de
