Research Positions at BRICS Research Centre and International PhD School

There are  several research positions  at BRICS  starting  next year, 1999.
Applications are welcome by researchers in theoretical computer science and
related areas, especially, but not exclusively, within the following areas:

      - Semantics of Computation,
      - Logic,
      - Algorithms and Data Structures,
      - Complexity Theory,
      - Data Security,
      - Programming Languages,
      - Distributed Computing,
      - Verification.

Openings,  while likely to  start as postdoctoral  positions, generally for
1-2 years, have the possibility of extension to longer-term positions.

BRICS, Basic Research in Computer Science, is funded by the Danish National
Research Foundation and consists of the BRICS Research Centre and the BRICS
International PhD School.
The Research Centre (Director Glynn Winskel) is a joint venture between the
theoretical-computer-science  groups at   the  universities of  Aarhus  and
Aalborg, Denmark.
The PhD  School (Director Mogens Nielsen)  is based in the Computer Science
Department at the University of Aarhus.

The BRICS Research  Centre is based on  a commitment to develop theoretical
computer science and related  mathematics, using a combination of long-term
efforts and a number  of short-term, intensive programmes, within carefully
chosen scientific themes. The BRICS International PhD  School offers a full
PhD programme  in  computer science,   including a  wide range of  courses,
summer  schools etc., and a  number  of PhD grants  for  Danish as well  as
foreign students.
