The Faculty of Science at the University of Copenhagen announces 25 PhD openings within the TALENT programme co-funded by EU Horizon 2020, for a range of topics that includes computer science in general, and could well involve the theory and practice of SAT and other NP-complete problems in particular. Please feel free to contact Jakob Nordström at jn at di.ku.dk if anything of the below sounds interesting.

The deadline for applications is October 1, 2019, and the positions are meant to start in February-April 2020.

More detailed information can be found at:

but briefly, the objective of the TALENT programme is to facilitate early independence of the PhD students and fast-track their careers in academia or industry. TALENT is a unique programme by requesting, as part of the application procedure, the applicants to devise their own interdisciplinary PhD project.

In EU Horizon 2020, the University of Copenhagen is number two in Europe when it comes to attracting Marie-Sklodowska-Curie Actions, and Faculty of Science researchers have received 30 grants from the European Research Council. The Faculty of Science is also host to 7 Centers of Excellence financed by the Danish National Research Foundation, and the Basic Algorithms Research Copenhagen (BARC) center (https://barc.ku.dk) at the CS department is a world-leading centre for fundamental algorithmic research. The PhD School at the Faculty of Science, in which the TALENT PhD students will be enrolled, has over 1,100 students, out of which more than half come from outside of Denmark, originating from 75 different countries.

This is obviously fairly short notice, but, again, please feel free to address any questions about this to me at jn at di.ku.dk.

Best regards,
Jakob Nordström
