Three associate professorships in theoretical computer science, Stockholm , SWEDEN

http://www.kth.se/en/om/work-at-kth/vacancies/associate-professor-in-computer-science-1.286611

The School of Computer Science and Communication at KTH Royal Institute of Technology invites 
applications for 3 associate professor positions in computer science, including but not limited 
to theoretical computer science. The TCS group at KTH would love to see strong theory applicants 
for these positions.

KTH is the leading technical university in Sweden, with education and research spanning from 
natural sciences to all branches of engineering including architecture, industrial management 
and urban planning. The TCS 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 regularly 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 associate professorships are permanent positions including both research and teaching at the 
undergraduate and master levels. Details regarding teaching load and support package for getting 
started with research in Sweden will be negotiated on an individual basis with the successful 
candidates.

The deadline for applications is February 29, 2012. For the full announcement including 
instructions how to apply, see
