Hiring: THE IBS Discrete Mathematics Group (DIMAG) Postdoctoral Research Fellowship (Due: April 26, 2020)

The IBS Discrete Mathematics Group (DIMAG) in Daejeon, Korea invites applications for several postdoctoral research fellowship positions.

URL: https://dimag.ibs.re.kr/hiring/

DIMAG is a new research group that was established in December 1, 2018 at the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), led by Prof. Sang-il Oum. DIMAG is located at the headquarters of the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) in Daejeon, South Korea, a city of 1.5 million people. 

Successful candidates for postdoctoral research fellowship positions will be new or recent Ph.D.’s with outstanding research potential in all fields of discrete mathematics with emphasis on structural graph theory, extremal graph theory, combinatorial optimization, matroid theory, or fixed-parameter tractable algorithms.

These non-tenure-track appointments are for two or three years, and the starting salary is no less than KRW 57,000,000. The appointment is one time renewable up to 5 years in total contingent upon the outstanding performance of the researcher.

These are purely research positions and research fellows will have no teaching duties.

A complete application packet should include:

  1. AMS standard cover sheet (preferred) or cover letter (PDF format)
  2. Curriculum vitae including a publication list (PDF format)
  3. Research statement (PDF format)
  4. Consent to Collection and Use of Personal Information (PDF file)
  5. At least 3 recommendation letters

For full consideration, applicants should email items 1, 2, 3, and 4 and arrange their recommendation letters emailed to dimag@ibs.re.kr by April 26, 2020, Sunday. Recommendations letters forwarded by an applicant will not be considered.

DIMAG encourages applications from individuals of diverse backgrounds.

For Korean citizens who have not yet completed their military duty: IBS는 병역특례지정기관입니다. IBS is a designated institute for alternative military service.

Due to COVID-19, the organizers decided to postpone the conference “Seymour is Seventy” to be held in Lyon, France, June 15-19, 2020

Due to COVID-19, the organizers decided to postpone the conference “Seymour is Seventy” to be held in Lyon, France, June 15-19, 2020. We hope to run a similar event in the summer of 2021 instead. Specific decisions on the dates are to be made when the situation clarifies.

Eun-Kyung Cho (조은경) gave a talk on the problem of decomposing a graph into a d-degenerate graph and a graph of bounded maximum degree at the Discrete Math Seminar

On March 3, 2020, Eun-Kyung Cho (조은경) from Hankuk University of Foreign Studies presented a talk on the existence of a decomposition of a planar graph into two edge-disjoint subgraphs, one of which is d-degenerate and the other has maximum degree at most h at the discrete math seminar. The title of her talk was “Decomposition of a planar graph into a d-degenerate graph and a graph with maximum degree at most h“. She will visit the IBS discrete math group until March 6.

Xin Zhang (张欣) gave a talk on the problem of partitioning a graph into forests of the almost equal size at the Discrete Math Seminar

On February 25, 2020, Xin Zhang (张欣) from Xidian University, China gave a talk on the problem of equitable tree-k-coloring of graphs and its variations. The title of his talk is “On the equitable tree-coloring of graphs with low degeneracy“. He is currently visiting the IBS discrete mathematics group for 1 year until August 2020 for his sabbatical leave.
