Dear colleagues,

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

Best regards,
Jakob Nordstrom


The Department of Computer Science (DIKU) at the University of Copenhagen invites applications for several postdoc 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 (currently ranked 7th worldwide by CSrankings.org), 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, 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. While our focus in on foundational research, we do have a track record of surprising algorithmic discoveries leading to major industrial applications.

These postdoc positions are full-time research positions for an intended duration of two years. Teaching of advanced courses is encouraged but not required. Travel funding is included, and we will also start receiving visitors again on a regular basis as soon as the Covid-19 situation permits. The starting date is flexible from April to September 2022.

The University of Copenhagen is currently expanding strongly in computer science. We expect to have tenure-track openings in in the coming years, and welcome postdoctoral researchers interested in exploring such opportunities.

The application deadline is February 6, 2022. See http://www.jakobnordstrom.se/openings/Postdoc-UCPH-220206.html for more information and a link to the application system. Informal enquiries are welcome and can be made to Mikkel Abrahamsen (miab at di.ku.dk), Jakob Nordstrom (jn at di.ku.dk), Rasmus Pagh (pagh at di.ku.dk), or Mikkel Thorup (mthorup at di.ku.dk).
