Dear colleagues,

I would be most grateful for any assistance in spreading the information below regarding postdoc openings at the University of Copenhagen in TCS (very much including proof complexity).

Best regards
Jakob Nordstrom


The Department of Computer Science (DIKU) at the University of Copenhagen invites applications for postdoctoral positions in theoretical computer science.

We are looking for outstanding junior researchers with an innovative mind-set and intellectual curiosity to strengthen and complement the research profile of the Algorithms and Complexity Section at DIKU. This is one of the leading research groups in theoretical computer science in Europe, with a strong presence at top-tier conferences like STOC, FOCS, and SODA, and also with publications in premier AI conferences like AAAI, IJCAI, and NeurIPS. We are part of an exciting environment including the Basic Algorithms Research Copenhagen (BARC) centre (https://barc.ku.dk/), joint with the IT University of Copenhagen, and have extensive collaborations with the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and Lund University on the Swedish side of the Oresund Bridge, as well as with our many visitors. 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 currently number 1 in the European Union (post-Brexit) according to the Shanghai Ranking.

These postdoc positions are full-time employed positions. The starting date is flexible from April to September 2021, and the intended duration is 2 years. The University of Copenhagen is currently expanding strongly in computer science. We expect to have tenure-track openings in theoretical computer science in the coming years, and welcome postdoctoral researchers interested in exploring such opportunities.

The application deadline is January 24, 2021. See https://employment.ku.dk/faculty/?show=153103 for the full announcement with more information and instructions for how to apply. Informal enquiries are welcome and may be sent to Jakob Nordström (jn at di.ku.dk), Rasmus Pagh (pagh at di.ku.dk), Mikkel Thorup (mthorup at di.ku.dk) or Christian Wulff-Nilsen (koolooz at di.ku.dk).
