at Aarhus University
At the computer science department of Aarhus University, Denmark, 3 PhD
positions will be available starting August or September 2010.
The background is the establishment of a new research center: Foundations of
Electronic Markets (FEM). The center will initiate a major new research
effort, combining the fields of cryptography, algorithms and computational
complexity with subjects in economics, such as game theory and mechanism
design. It involves several international partners in industry and academic
research. We are therefore looking for students with a strong background in
computer science and/or mathematics and an interest in any of the relevant
computer science fields. For more information on the center, see
Students will be given the opportunity to work with basic or applied
research in FEM as well another closely related project: Confidential
Benchmarking (COBE), which aims at developing new cryptographic protocols
for secure analysis of confidential data from multiple sources.
Entering our PhD program requires at least 4 years of full-time study.
However, based only on a bachelor degree, one can be admitted to an honors
program directed against a PhD study.
The Computer Science department of Aarhus University (http://www.cs.au.dk)
is one of the strongest CS departments in Europe. We are particularly known
for our work in algorithms, complexity theory and cryptography.
Interested students are encouraged to get in touch with either Ivan Damgard
(firstname.lastname@example.org) or Peter Bro Miltersen (email@example.com)
