We invite applications for two faculty positions at the rank of an assistant professor in the area of theoretical computer science, discrete mathematics and optimization.

We are looking for candidates that would complement and/or strengthen existing research areas in our departments. Strong candidates from all areas of theoretical computer science and discrete mathematics will be considered. For further information about our research see http://kam.mff.cuni.cz/ and http://iuuk.mff.cuni.cz/. Informal inquiries are welcome and may be sent to Martin Loebl <loebl@kam.mff.cuni.cz> and Michal Koucky <koucky@iuuk.mff.cuni.cz>.

A successful candidate is expected to pursue an active research program, teach advanced and introductory classes and possibly supervise undergraduate and graduate students. Candidates are expected to have a proven international research record and postdoctoral experience. A PhD in computer science, discrete mathematics or a closely related field is required.

The contract duration is three years. Potentially, the positions are renewable; also a habilitation (associate professor promotion) and a permanent position is a standard possibility (subject to a separate review process).

A separate application is necessary for each of the two positions, applicants are encouraged to apply for both of them.
