Dear colleagues,

I would very much appreciate your assistance in spreading the information 
that the University of Copenhagen is seeking candidates for a full 
professorship in Theoretical Computer Science (TCS). More specifically, we 
are inviting exceptional candidates from the broad fields of algorithms, 
complexity, and cryptography including privacy.

We are looking for an outstanding, experienced researcher with an 
innovative mind-set and intellectual curiosity to strengthen and 
complement the research profile of the Algorithms and Complexity Section, 
headed by Professor Mikkel Thorup. The Algorithms and Complexity Section 
is part of an exciting environment including the Basic Algorithms Research 
Copenhagen (BARC) centre, joint with the IT University of Copenhagen, and 
involving extensive collaborations with the Technical University of 
Denmark (DTU) and Lund University on the Swedish side of the Oresund 
Bridge. We aim to attract top talent from around the world to an 
ambitious, creative, collaborative, and fun environment. Using the power 
of mathematics, we strive to create fundamental breakthroughs in 
algorithms and complexity theory, but we also have a track record of 
start-ups and surprising algorithmic discoveries leading to major 
industrial applications.

The University of Copenhagen was founded in 1479 and is the oldest and 
largest university in Denmark. It is often ranked as the best university 
in Scandinavia and consistently as one of the top places in Europe. Within 
computer science, it is ranked number 1 in the European Union 
(post-Brexit) by the Shanghai Ranking.

The application deadline is May 24, 2020. See 
for the full announcement with more information and instructions how to 
apply. Inquiries about the position can be made to Head of Section, 
Professor Mikkel Thorup (mthorup at di.ku.dk; cell phone +45 2117 9123) and 
Head of Department, Professor Mads Nielsen (madsn at di.ku.dk; cell phone +45 
2460 0599). Of course, informal inquires to yours truly are more than 
welcome as well...

Best regards,
Jakob Nordström
