Vojtěch Rödl (born 1 April 1949) is a Czech American mathematician, Samuel Candler Dobbs Professor at Emory University. He is noted for his contributions mainly to combinatorics having authored hundreds of research papers.
From 1973 to 1987 he lectured at the School of Nuclear and Physical Engineering at the Czech Technical University in Prague. He has held visiting positions in various institutions including McMaster University, University of Waterloo, Bell Laboratories, Microsoft, Charles University, Mathematical Institute of the Czech Academy of Science, Bielefeld University, as well as at Humboldt University in Berlin.
He serves on the editorial board of several international journals.
He has given lectures at many conferences, including plenary address in 2014 at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Seoul and an invited lecture in 1990 at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Kyoto.
Rödl published more than four hundred papers, mostly in combinatorics. He is mostly known for his contributions to Ramsey theory, extremal problems, and probabilistic combinatorics.
