PhD student positions in computer science, Aarhus (Denmark)

At the computer science department of Aarhus University, Denmark, 3 PhD positions will be available starting August or September 2010. The background is the establishment of a new research center: Foundations of Electronic Markets (FEM). The center will initiate a major new research effort, combining the fields of cryptography, algorithms and computational complexity with subjects in economics, such as game theory and mechanism design. It involves several international partners in industry and academic research. We are therefore looking for students with a strong background in computer science and/or mathematics and an interest in any of the relevant computer science fields. For more information on the center, see http://www.cfem.dk.

Students will be given the opportunity to work with basic or applied research in FEM as well another closely related project: Confidential Benchmarking (COBE), which aims at developing new cryptographic protocols for secure analysis of confidential data from multiple sources.

Entering our PhD program requires at least 4 years of full-time study. However, based only on a bachelor degree, one can be admitted to an honors program directed against a PhD study.

The Computer Science department of Aarhus University (http://www.cs.au.dk) is one of the strongest CS departments in Europe. We are particularly known for our work in algorithms, complexity theory and cryptography.

Interested students are encouraged to get in touch with either Ivan Damgard () or Peter Bro Miltersen () See also the CS department's pages for potential PhD students (http://cs.au.dk/studies/phd-school).
