1、PhD position in Algorithmic Game Theory + Machine Learning at University of Zurich, Switzerland (Sven Seuken)
The position will be funded by a new **ERC Starting Grant** on "Machine Learning-based Market Design" led by Prof. Dr. Sven Seuken. The successful applicant will join a team of 3 PhD students and 1 Post Doc jointly working on this research project over a time period of 4-5 years.
Market design is a research field that combines techniques from computer science, game theory, operations research, and other fields. Its goal is to design new, well-functioning marketplaces or repair ones that are broken. In our research group, we study foundational market design questions from an algorithmic and game-theoretic perspective. Current group members work on a variety of projects including combinatorial auctions, data markets, cloud computing markets, financial markets, and equilibrium finding algorithms. The focus of this position will be on the intersection of machine learning, market design, and algorithmic game theory. We publish our research in the top international conferences and journals in the areas of AI and Economics and Computation. In some projects, we also collaborate with industrial partners such as Google and Microsoft.
- a team of young and highly motivated colleagues who are passionate about topics at the intersection of computer science and game theory (in particular: market design)
- a competitive salary of approximately 53,000 Euro per year
- generous support for professional travel and research needs
- an opportunity to take graduate level courses at the University of Zurich and ETH Zurich
- an opportunity to gain teaching and mentoring experience
- strong support for your professional/career development (including research internships)
- an attractive work environment both within the research group and
beyond: the University of Zurich is one of Switzerland's leading universities in the middle of a vibrant, cosmopolitan city that regularly ranks as one of the cities with the highest quality of life in the world.
- a master's degree in computer science or a related field (e.g., mathematics, economics, or operations research). Highly qualified students with a bachelor's degree may also apply.
- an interest in topics at the intersection of computer science and game theory
- strong mathematical skills and a good background in theoretical computer science
- excellent communication skills in English (German speaking skills are not necessary)
- prior knowledge in game theory, machine learning, or optimization is desirable but not required.
