New PhD Positions (DEADLINE 15 February 2005! See "How to apply" below)

                     Department of Computing Science,
       Chalmers University of Technology & Göteborg University
                           Gothenburg, Sweden

The Department has about 80 researchers, half being faculty members and
half PhD students. Our focus is on algorithms, bioinformatics, distributed
systems and computing, functional programming, formal methods, interaction
design, language technology, parallel and high performance computing,
programming logic and type theory, but research is not restricted to these
For more information, see http://www.cs.chalmers.se/Cs/Research.

PhD positions are for 5 years. There is no tuition fee. A PhD position is
a regular job with social benefits; the salary amounts currently to about
20600 SEK per month in the first year (the exact amount depends on
teaching duties, usually 20% of your time).

Knowledge of Swedish is not a prerequisite for application. English is our
working language for research. Both Swedish and English are used in
undergraduate courses.  Half of our researchers and PhD students are
native Swedes; the rest come from more than 20 different countries.

Applicants must have a very good undergraduate degree in Computing Science
or in a related subject with a strong Computing Science component. They
must also have a strong, documented interest in doing research.

You may even apply if you have not yet completed your degree, but expect
to do so by 1 September 2005. You are also invited to apply for our new
International Master's Programme in Dependable Computer Systems, which can
help you to obtain the necessary qualification, if you do not yet have it
(see http://www.cs.chalmers.se/Cs/Education/dcs/).

Applicants in the area of language-based and logic-based security are
encouraged to apply to specially allocated positions.

The School especially welcomes female applicants.

How to apply

To apply send us a letter containing the following documentation:

     1. A letter of application, listing specific research interests
     2. A curriculum vitae
     3. Attested copies of undergraduate degrees and other certificates
     4. Copies of relevant work, for example dissertations or articles,
that you have authored i
        or co-authored
     5. A description of:
            * Previous teaching experience, documented, if any
            * Previous PhD studies, also in other subjects
            * State financial support for these, if any
            * Previous work experience
     6.  Letters of recommendation from your teachers or employers
         *** You MUST include Letters of Recommendation: we typically get
                  over 100 apps,
         and it is simply not feasible for us to request individual letters

The job refrence number is: 6/2005. The last date for your full
application to arrive is February 15, 2005 to:

Registrator, Chalmers University of Technology, Se-412 96 Göteborg, Sweden.
Phone: +4631 772 1000, fax: +4631 772 4922, email:
registrator at adm.chalmers.se

If you have financial support of your own (industry job, grant, etc.),
please state this fact clearly. It will increase your chances to be
accepted considerably, because you need not compete for the limited number
of fully financed positions.

A decision about the PhD positions will be taken before May 15, 2005.
