PostDoc 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 postdoc positions in theoretical computer science and/or combinatorial optimization.We are looking for outstanding junior researchers with an innovative mind-set and intellectual curiosity to strengthen and complement the research profile of the Mathematical Insights into Algorithms for Optimization (MIAO) group headed by Jakob Nordström, which is active at both the University of Copenhagen and Lund University on either side of the Øresund Bridge.

We currently have openings for both theoretically and practically inclined researchers. There is a lot of flexibility as to what kind of research to 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 postdoc positions are full-time research positions for an expected duration of two years. Within the overall framework sketched above, the postdocs will be expected and encouraged to contribute to and influence the research agenda. Teaching of advanced courses is encouraged but not required. The starting date is negotiable but should ideally be as early as possible, say October 2022 or so.
