I am looking for a PhD student to work with me at LSE.
See my research and publications pages for an idea of my research interests, which lie primarily in fundamental mathematical aspects of algorithms and discrete optimization. Below are some indicative potential directions (but this is by no means an exhaustive list).
The position is in the Department of Mathematics. We have a substantial Operations Research group (other faculty are Laci Vegh, Greg Sorkin, Giacomo Zambelli, Ahmad Abdi and Katerina Papadaki), with close ties to both the Game Theory and Discrete Mathematics group (e.g., we have a joint seminar).
The position comes with an LSE studentship; this can be augmented by doing some teaching for the department. Much more information can be found here.
The deadline is April 29th. Before making a formal application (see here), we recommend potential applicants send an informal enquiry to Enfale Farooq (firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible. Informal enquiries should include a CV, unofficial transcripts, and (optionally) published papers, manuscripts, or dissertations.
The formal application requests a research proposal. For this application, a full research proposal is not required. Applicants may instead include a short (approximately 1 page) discussion of a research problem, or more broadly a research area, that they find particularly interesting. This may relate to a topic mentioned above, or to previous work the candidate has done, or to anything else. It does not need to indicate a project of the scale needed to complete a PhD, and is primarily an opportunity to illustrate an appetite for research.
