New PhD Positions (DEADLINE 15 February 2005! See "How to apply" below)

                    Department of Computing Science,
      Chalmers University of Technology & Göteborg University
                          Gothenburg, Sweden

The Department 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 and high performance 
programming logic and type theory, but research is not restricted to 
these topics.
For more information, see http://www.cs.chalmers.se/Cs/Research.

PhD positions are for 5 years. There is no tuition fee. A PhD position
is a regular job with social benefits; the salary amounts currently to
about 20600 SEK per month in the first year (the exact amount depends
on teaching duties, usually 20% of your time).

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

Applicants must have a very good undergraduate degree in Computing
Science or in a related subject with a strong Computing Science
component. They must also have a strong, documented interest in doing

You may even apply if you have not yet completed your degree, but
expect to do so by 1 September 2005. You are also invited to apply for
our new International Master's Programme in Dependable Computer
Systems, which can help you to obtain the necessary qualification, if
you do not yet have it (see http://www.cs.chalmers.se/Cs/Education/dcs/).

Applicants in the area of language-based and logic-based security are 
encouraged to
apply to specially allocated positions.

The School especially welcomes female applicants.

           * State financial support for these, if any
           * Previous work experience
    6.  Letters of recommendation from your teachers or employers
        *** You MUST include Letters of Recommendation: we typically get 
                 over 100 apps,
