Dear colleagues,

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. Any assistance in distributing the information below would be much appreciated, and any questions can be directed to Jakob Nordström at jn at di.ku.dk.

The deadline for applications is February 13, 2020, and the positions are meant to start in August 2020.

More detailed information can be found at:

- https://talent.ku.dk/

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 38 grants from the European Research Council within this program. The Faculty of Science is also host to 6 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 1,000 students, out of which more than half come from outside of Denmark, originating from 71 different countries.

Informal enquiries are welcome and may be sent to jn at di.ku.dk.

Best regards,
Jakob Nordström
