Announcement of PhD Positions in Computing Science at Chalemrs

The Department of Computing Science at the Chalmers University of
Technology and Göteborgs University announces free PhD positions.

The major research topics at the department are programming logic and type
theory, functional programming, concurrency, fault tolerant distributed
systems, formal methods, cognition technology, and algorithms and discrete
optimisation, but research is also carried out in a number of other
topics. More information about the research at the department can be found
on the WWW on page:

Most PhD positions are five year scholarships. The PhD student will
spend about 80 percent of his or her time on graduate studies, and
about 20 percent on teaching. Applicants must have an undergraduate
degree in Computer Science with excellent results. The department
tries to increase the number of female employees, and especially
welcomes female applicants. At the moment the scholarships consists of
15400 (18000) SEK per month in the first (last) year. Usually a
foreign PhD student does not teach in his or her first year in Sweden,
and as a consequence the scholarship is of a slightly smaller size.
