Postdoc positions in algorithmic game theory at the University of Oxford

Three postdoc positions in Algorithmic Game Theory are available at the University of Oxford funded by the ERC Advanced Grant "Algorithms, Games, Mechanisms, and the Price of Anarchy" (Principal Investigator: Elias Koutsoupias). The researchers will be based in the Department of Computer Science and will be part of the newly-established Algorithms group in Oxford (  Work for these posts includes investigating, designing, and analyzing mechanisms; extending the theory of the price of anarchy and stability; investigating game-playing issues that arise by applying the algorithmic approach (e.g. limitations in computation and communication) to classical game theory.

Candidates should have a first degree and a doctorate in computer science or related discipline and a record of research in algorithmic game theory or a related area.
Area: Algorithmic Game Theory
Number of positions: 3
Duration: 1 year (extendable to 5 years)
Deadline for applications: 12 noon on 10th October 2013
Further information and applications:

Informal inquiries are welcome and should be directed to Elias Koutsoupias (
