This is a proposal for a postdoctoral fellowship for Julia Böttcher, to be held at the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics of the University of São Paulo (IME/USP), from 1 April 2010 to 31 March 2012 (2 years). This researcher is already a postdoctoral fellow at this department, with a fellowship from the European Comission, under the EUBRANEX programme; this fellowship is for six months, from 1 October 2009 to 21 March 2010.This candidate is an active member of NUMEC, Núcleo de Modelagem Estatística e Complexidade, a research unit of the University of São Paulo.This project is centred around three lines of research: (i) embedding problems for large graphs in dense graphs, (ii) embedding and resilience problems for (almost) spanning graphs in sparse random graphs, (iii) packing problems for trees.
