(211-0538) Tenure-track Assistant Professor in Algorithms

Tenure-track assistant Professor of Algorithms 
Department of Computer Science  
Faculty of Science 
University of Copenhagen
 
Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen (DIKU) is offering Tenure-track Assistant Professorship in algorithms expected to commence 1 June 2018  or as soon as possible thereafter.  
 
The Algorithms Group at DIKU is headed by Professors Mikkel Thorup and Stephen Alstrup. The group 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). BARC is located at DIKU and organized in collaboration with the IT University of Copenhagen. 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. While the focus of BARC is algorithms theory, we do have a track record of surprising algorithmic discoveries leading to major industrial applications. 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.
