PhD positions in TCS and/or combinatorial optimization in Copenhagen (Denmark)

Deadline: Wednesday 29 June 2022

The Department of Computer Science (DIKU) at the University of Copenhagen invites applications for PhD positions in theoretical computer science and/or combinatorial optimization. The PhD students will be working in the Mathematical Insights into Algorithms for Optimization (MIAO) group headed by Jakob Nordstrom, which is active at both the University of Copenhagen and Lund University on either side of the Oresund Bridge.

We currently have openings for both theoretically and practically inclined PhD students. There is a lot of flexibility as to what kind of research the PhD students will pursue, and all candidates are welcome, both those who want to go deep into either theory or practice and those who are inspired by the challenge of bridging the gap between the two.

These positions are available for period of 3-5 years, depending on the current education level of the applicant. All PhD positions in the research group are fully funded, employed positions (including travel money) that come with an internationally competitive salary. The starting date is negotiable but should ideally be in not-too-late autumn 2022.
