OFFER DESCRIPTION

The  Institute of Mathematics and Informatics of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences announces a postdoctoral position in the field of Coding Theory, funded by the Bulgarian Research Program PIKOM (ПИКОМ). Duration of the position is 6 or 12 months, extendable for up to 36 months. Successful candidates will work in the department "Mathematical Foundations of Informatics and be affiliated with the International Center for Mathematical Sciences, Sofia (ICMS-Sofia), which is part of the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics.

Field: Optimal Codes

Supervisor: prof. Iliya Bouyukliev

Brief annotation:

Error-correcting codes have practical applications in many spheres of life such as information technology, communications, control systems, etc. In a series of papers starting from late 70’s a number of important properties of optimal linear codes were proved leading to classification results for both binary and q-ary cases. Apart from pure mathematical results specialized software was developed to strengthen the research capabilities in the field. The investigations in the field continue with new constructions and nonexistence results are proved in different cases, ensuring further classification. Recent projects develop tools created by the team initially for investigations of optimal codes for use in combinatorics and cryptography.
