Computer Science - Wolfson Building, Parks Road, Oxford
We are looking for a motivated Research Associate to conduct research on Multi-winner voting and participatory budgeting.
This research is led jointly by Edith Elkind (Oxford) and Maria Polukarov (King's College). The primary goal of the project is to contribute to the research agenda on multiwinner voting and participatory budgeting, with a focus on fairness, robustness and decision-making over time. The Research Associate will be based at Oxford, and will work directly with Prof Elkind and members of her group.
The successful candidate must hold a PhD or DPhil in computer science, mathematics or related discipline (candidates who are close to completing their doctoral degree will be considered), and have experience with algorithmic game theory or computational social choice.
It is expected that the post holder to manage their own research and administrative activities, develop and manage research projects as part of the overall research agenda for the project, contribute to wider project planning, including ideas for new research projects, contribute to scientific reports and journal articles and the presentation of papers at conferences and workshops.

This would be discussed with applicants at interview/appointment where appropriate.
We would particularly welcome applications from women and black and minority ethnic applicants who are currently under-represented within the Computer Science Department.
