The Max-Planck-Institute for Computer Science is located on the campus
of the Universit"at des Saarlandes in Saarbr"ucken, Germany.  The
institute was founded in 1990 and hosts four major research groups:
Algorithms and Complexity, Logic of Programming, Computer Graphics,
and Computational Biology.

The research group ALGORITHMS AND COMPLEXITY offers 
a number of postdoctoral fellowships for the year 2003/2004.

We are looking for applicants from all areas of algorithmics, e.g.,
data structures, complexity theory, graph algorithms, approximation
algorithms, parallel, distributed, external, online, probabilistic or
geometric algorithms.
For national and European projects we are particularly looking 
for applicants interested in
- Design and implementation of algorithm libraries
- Algorithms and software for parallel processing and memory hierarchies
- Integer programming and constraint programming
- Internet routing and load balancing algorithms
- Geometric algorithms for curves and surfaces

The group consists mainly of young researchers of several
nationalities. Our working language is English.  The group
collaborates with several of the major research institutions in Europe
and USA and has a high international visibility.  There is generous
travel support available for all group members.  Postdoctoral
fellowships are available for one or two years and currently amount to
Euro 1840 per month, taxfree.

Applications (including curriculum vitae, list of publications,
research plan, names of references with their e-mail addresses, and
intended period of stay) should be sent by January 31, 2003 to

Kurt Mehlhorn
Max-Planck-Institut f"ur Informatik
Im Stadtwald
D-66123 Saarbr"ucken

Electronic applications (email to mayer at are possible
but should consist of files easy to process on Unix systems (e.g.,
Postscript produced by dvips, pdf, ASCII, HTML). Please avoid MS Word
documents or unprintable Postscript.
