Postdoc positions in TCS at University of Copenhagen

Deadline: Monday 6 July 2020

The Department of Computer Science (DIKU) at the University of Copenhagen invites applications for postdoc positions in theoretical computer science. The postdoctoral researchers will be working in 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 and IJCAI. 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 the focus in on theoretical research, we do have a track record of surprising algorithmic discoveries leading to major industrial applications.

These postdoc positions are full-time employed positions for two years. The expected starting date is October 2020, although this is to some extent negotiable. We are currently expanding strongly in computer science, and expect to have tenure-track openings in theoretical computer science in the near future. We welcome postdoctoral researchers interested in exploring such opportunities.
