Research within the DFG funded Emmy Noether project "Foundations of Interactive Democracy", in particular:
analysis of digital tools for democratic decision making (e.g., citizen participation platforms and software supporting political opinion formation)
analysis of delegation-based decision making paradigms ("liquid democracy")
development of social choice-theoretic approaches for interactive application scenarios
documentation and presentation of results at international conferences and Workshops
PhD thesis preparation is possible.
Successfully completed university degree (Master, Diplom or equivalent) in Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics or a related discipline. The main research themes of the group are computational social choice and algorithmic game theory. Applicants must have a strong background in discrete mathematics and a strong interest in interdisciplinary research on interactive democracy. Knowledge of game theory and/or social choice theory is beneficial. A very good knowledge of spoken and written English is required. Programming skills are a plus.
