This is a 4-year project ending in September 2015, with open PhD and Postdoc positions.

GeomComp is part of the Thales program of the Greek Ministry of Education, funded by EU and Greek funds. The member groups are involved in competitive and exciting EU projects and maintain a high international visibility; the corresponding institutions provide a very supportive research environment. The aim of GeomComp is to employ a modern, multi-disciplinary approach, at the intersection of Computer Science, Engineering, and Computational Mathematics. We expect to deliver top-level algorithmic results for representative and important problems in Geometric Computing, along with robust implementations (possibly integrated in the CGAL library), leading to the practical solution of specific, critical applications.

GeomComp offers full-time PhD and Postdoc positions, with funding guaranteed initially for two years (PhD) or one year (Postdoc), within the timeframe of the Project (ending in September 2015).

PhD or Postdoc applicants should have (or be bound to have by the starting date) a MSc or PhD degree, respectively, in computer science, applied mathematics, or related discipline. Applicants with a strong background in computational geometry and/or geometric design will be preferred. Candidates must be comfortable with writing and speaking in English.

To Apply
Applicants should send an email to Euripides Markou ( including:

  • Full CV, including Contact details of at least 2 references.
  • PhD candidates: A cover letter to specify their preferred area(s) of research.
  • Postdoc candidates: A statement of their research interests (1-2 pages).

There is no deadline for expressing interest. There are regular calls for applicants and formal recruitment follows these calls.
