Postdoctoral Fellowship in Algorithms

Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen (DIKU) is offering a Postdoctoral Fellowship in algorithms, expected to commence 1 August 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position is funded by the Danish Sapere Aude Starting Grant “Dynamic and Static Graph Algorithms and Data Structures” held by Associate Professor Christian Wulff-Nilsen.  
 
The project focuses on algorithms theory for graph problems such as shortest paths, minimum spanning tree, and max flow, in static graphs as well as in a dynamic setting where graphs change over time, typically by edge/vertex updates. A key goal is to obtain a better understanding of the true time and space complexities of such problems by developing more efficient algorithms and data structures than state-of-the-art.  
 
The Algorithms Group at DIKU is prolific at the topmost conferences like SODA, STOC, and FOCS, e.g. with 10 papers accepted for SODA'18. Adding to the excitement, we have just started the new center Basic Algorithms Research Copenhagen (BARC, cf. barc.ku.dk) and the project is co-located with this center. The aim is 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 algorithmic thinking, typically disseminated in top venues such as STOC, FOCS, and SODA. Finally, it should be mentioned that Computer Science and Engineering at University of Copenhagen was 11th in the 2017 Shanghai Ranking, and 3rd outside the US.
 
The duties of the postdoctoral researcher will include theoretical research within algorithms. The length of the position is 2 years with possible extensions until end of 2021.

The University wishes our staff to reflect the diversity of society and thus welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of personal background.  
 
Requirements  
The candidates must have  
• A PhD degree in Computer Science, Mathematics, or equivalent.  
• Demonstrated strength within algorithm with a solid publication record at the top conferences such as STOC, FOCS, and SODA.  
 
Terms of employment  
The position is covered by the Memorandum on Job Structure for Academic Staff.  
 
Terms of appointment and payment accord to the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and The Danish Confederation of Professional Associations on Academics in the State.  
 
The starting salary is currently up to DKK 419.760 including annual supplement (+ pension up to DKK 71.760). Negotiation for salary supplement is possible.
