Dear colleagues,

I would be most grateful for any assistance in spreading the information below regarding a tenure-track assistant or associate professorship in computational complexity theory at the University of Copenhagen. In particular, we will be happy to receive applications from strong candidates interested in proof complexity. Please note that the application deadline is already October 2.

Best regards,
Jakob Nordstrom


The Department of Computer Science (DIKU) at the University of Copenhagen invites applications for a tenure-track assistant or associate professorship in computational complexity theory.

We are looking for an outstanding researcher 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 a world-leading research environment with a strong presence at top-tier conferences like STOC, FOCS, CCC, and SODA, and also with publications in premier AI conferences like AAAI, IJCAI, and NeurIPS. We are home to 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 with 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 the focus in on foundational research, we do have a track record of 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 2nd in the European Union (post-Brexit) by ShanghaiRanking.

The application deadline is October 2, 2022. See http://www.jakobnordstrom.se/openings/AsstAssocProf-UCPH-221002.html for more information and instructions how to apply. Informal enquiries are welcome and may be sent to jn at di.ku.dk.
