The School of Computer Science and Communication at KTH Royal Institute of Technology invites applications for a tenured associate professorship in computer science with a broad profile, covering all research areas currently represented at the school including theoretical computer science.
KTH is the leading technical university in Sweden. The Theory Group at KTH (http://www.csc.kth.se/tcs/) offers a strong research environment covering a wide range of research topics such as complexity theory and approximation algorithms, computer and network security, cryptography, formal methods and natural language processing. The group has a consistent track record of publishing in the leading theoretical computer science conferences and journals worldwide, and the research conducted here has attracted numerous international awards and grants in recent years.
The working language of the TCS group is English, and knowledge of English is also fully sufficient to navigate life in Sweden in general. It might also be worth mentioning that Sweden routinely scores at the absolute top in rankings of quality of life such as, e.g., the OECD Better Life Index (http://www.oecdbetterlifeindex.org/).
The application deadline is February 17, 2017. See http://www.kth.se/en/om/work-at-kth/lediga-jobb/what:job/jobID:96024/where:4/ for the full announcement with more information and instructions how to apply. Informal enquiries about this position (and possibly about how to navigate the application procedure at KTH) are welcome and may be sent to Johan Hastad at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jakob Nordstrom at email@example.com.
It should also be pointed out that this is only one of several openings in computer science at KTH, including also, for instance:
- One tenured associate professorship in computer science with a specialization in software engineering http://www.kth.se/en/om/work-at-kth/lediga-jobb/what:job/jobID:118880/where:4/
- One tenure-track assistant professorship in computer science with a specialization in software engineering http://www.kth.se/en/om/work-at-kth/lediga-jobb/what:job/jobID:118874/where:4/
- One tenure-track assistant professorship in computer science with a specialization in machine learning http://www.kth.se/en/om/work-at-kth/lediga-jobb/what:job/jobID:118778/where:4/
All of these positions have an application deadline of February 17, 2017.
