Five PhD Scholarships in Algorithmics

http://www1.imada.sdu.dk/areas.html

Five PhD Scholarships in Algorithmics
-------------------------------------

The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of
Southern Denmark has funding for five PhD students for projects in
Algorithmics. Each project will be in one of the areas of On-Line
Algorithms, Graph Algorithms, and Bioinformatics.  Further information
about these areas and projects can be found at:
http://www1.imada.sdu.dk/areas.html

The qualifications necessary for applicants are:

1. A course in Algorithms and Complexity. This is a course beyond a low
  level course on Data Structures.

2. A Master's degree in Computer Science, or a Bachelor's degree in
  Computer Science with one year of courses beyond a 3-year Bachelor's
  degree. (Note that the PhD programme lasts three years in the first case
  and four in the second.) The degree cannot be from the University of
  Southern Denmark. For the area graph algorithms, degrees in Mathematics
  are also acceptable.

3. Excellent grades and letters of recommendation.

4. Interest and motivation to work in one of these areas.

5. Fluency in English.

The start date for these scholarships is August 16, 2010. The amount of the
scholarship, which is paid as salary (including pension contribuations and
vacation money), is about 380,000.00 DKK (equivalent to approx. 51,000.00
Euros or ,000.00 US) per year for students who already have a Master's
degree.  The salary starts lower for students who do not have a Master's
degree making the total salary over four years approximately the same as
the salary over three years for the students with a Master's degree.

The algorithmics group at the Department of Mathematics and Computer
Science provides a very strong scientific environment combined with a
friendly atmosphere.  The University of Southern Denmark was founded in
1966 and currently has several campuses, with a total of almost 20,000
students. The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science resides at the
main campus which is located in Odense, the third largest city in Denmark,
a country known for its high standard of living, high tech industry, and
cultural scene.

The application deadline is April 1, 2010.  For application details see:
