The Division has about 80 researchers, half being faculty members and half PhD students. Our focus is on algorithms, bioinformatics, distributed systems and computing, functional programming, formal methods, interaction design, language technology, parallel iand high performance computing, programming language based methods for security, programming logic and type theory, but research is not restricted to these topics. More information is here.
PhD positions are limited to at most five years. Usually, a PhD student will spend about 80 percent of his or her time on graduate studies, and about 20 percent on teaching.
Knowledge of Swedish is not a prerequisite for application. English is our working language for research. Both Swedish and English are used in undergraduate courses. Half of our researchers and PhD students are native Swedes; the rest come from more than 20 different countries.
Applicants must have a very good undergraduate degree in Computing Science or in a closely related subject. You may even apply if your graduate degree is not complete, but is expected to be finished by September 1, 2005.
Applicants in the area of language-based and logic-based security are encouraged to apply to specially allocated positions.
The department aims to increase the number of female employees, and especially welcomes female applicants.
If you have financial support of your own (industry job, grant, etc.), please state this fact clearly. It will increase your chances to be accepted considerably, because you need not compete for the limited number of fully financed positions.
A decision about the PhD positions will be taken before May 15,
