Research in the newly established Research Training Group (Graduiertenkolleg) FACETS OF COMPLEXITY, a joint initiative of scientists at the three major Berlin universities.

The scientific program includes

  • Complexity of algorithms
  • Complexity of combinatorial structures
  • Complexity of geometric structures
  • Complexity of graphs and networks

We look in particular for candidates who can connect several of these areas, and who can combine the combinatorial, descriptional, and algorithmic aspects of complexity.

The program of the Research Training Network includes a regular Monday afternoon colloquium, block courses, summer schools, research workshops, etc. - all this in a very lively Berlin discrete mathematics and algorithmics environment, which also includes the BERLIN MATHEMATICAL SCHOOL (, the joint international graduate program of the three major Berlin universities. We offer a family-friendly work environment, as well as career training and counseling that is specifically tailored for researchers in the postdoctoral stage, and special programs for female scientists.
