New PhD Positions 2007
Division of Computing Science,
Chalmers University of Technology


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, language based security, parallel
and high performance computing, programming logic and type theory, but
research is not restricted to these topics.

For more information, see

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 related subject with a strong Computing Science component. They
must also have a strong, documented interest in doing research.

You may even apply if you have not yet completed your degree, but expect
to do so by   1 September 2007.

We particularly encourage applicants with interests in:

-       applying techniques from functional programming to develop novel methods
of hardware design and verification. For more information on this point
contact Mary Sheeran (ms(at)cs.chalmers.se);
-       automated theorem proving, SAT-solving, and functional programming. For
more information on this point see
http://www.cs.chalmers.se/~koen/folkung/, or contact Koen Claessen
-       distributed algorithms for providing coordination services to networked
or multiprocessor applications. For more information on this point see the
webapages of the group Distributed Computing and Systems
http://www.cs.chalmers.se/~dcs/ or contact Marina Papatriantafilou
-       program analysis for software engineering. For more information on this
point see the webpage of the group Software Methodologies and Systems
(http://sms.cs.chalmers.se, "Open Positions") or contact Sibylle Schupp

The department especially welcomes female applicants.

How to apply
The full application should contain
1.      A letter of application, listing specific research interests
2.      A curriculum vitae
3.      Attested copies of degrees and other certificates
4.      Copies of relevant work, for example dissertations or
       articles, that you have authored or co-authored
5.      Letters of recommendation from your teachers or employers

*** You MUST include or e-mail Letters of Recommendation:
      we typically get over 100 apps, and it is
      simply not feasible for us to request individual letters ***

The job reference number is: 2007/30. The last date for your full
application to arrive is March 9, 2007

Send your application electronically in PDF files or by paper-mail to
Registrator, Chalmers University of Technology, Se-412 96 Göteborg, Sweden.
