The 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:

The qualifications necessary for application 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

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
