Dear colleagues,

The postdoc position advertised below may be relevant to readers of this 
mailing list: It is about developing (modal) logics for modelling 
collective decision making mechanisms, as well as other issues at the 
interface of AI, logic and mathematical economics.

All the best,


The Institute of Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) at the 
University of Amsterdam is currently looking for one PhD student and one 
postdoctoral research fellow to work on research problems in 
computational social choice. The positions are part of the new NWO Vidi 
project on "Collective Decision Making in Combinatorial Domains".

The project will bring together ideas from computer science, artificial 
intelligence, multiagent systems, computational logic, and social choice 
theory to develop and analyse mechanisms for collective decision making 
when the set of possible agreements has a combinatorial structure. 
Exemplary applications include resource allocation problems with 
indivisible goods and the study of voting rules for committee elections.

Further details on the project and the positions are available at the 
following URL:


The closing date for applications is 9 November 2007 and the preferred 
starting date would be 1 February 2008.

Best wishes,
Ulle Endriss
