Postdoc in Computer Science Focused on SAT Solving
KTH Royal Institute of Technology, School of Computer Science and Communication
KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as in architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.
The Theoretical Computer Science Group at KTH Royal Institute of Technology invites applications for a postdoc position in computer science focused on SAT solving.
The Theoretical Computer Science Group at KTH offers a strong research environment spanning a wide range of research topics such as complexity theory and approximation algorithms, computer and network security, cryptography, formal methods and natural language processing. We have one of Europe's most prominent groups in algorithms and complexity theory, and the research conducted here has attracted numerous international awards and grants in recent years.
Applicants should have or be about to receive a Ph.D. degree in a subject relevant for the research area, and should have a passionate interest in research. The successful candidate is expected to have a solid background in computer science in general and SAT solving in particular, and preferably also mathematics, and should have a strong research record as witnessed by publications in conferences such as AAAI, IJCAI, SAT, CP, or similar, or in journals of a comparable quality. Problem solving skills and creativity are a must. Excellent programming skills are crucial.
The working language of the TCS group is English, and knowledge of English is also fully sufficient to navigate life in Sweden in general. It might also be worth mentioning that Sweden routinely scores at the absolute top in rankings of quality of life such as, e.g., the OECD Better Life Index.
The application should include the following documents:
- Curriculum vitae
- List of publications
- Brief research statement with description of your research so far and future research goals and interests
- Copy of Ph.D. diploma (if applicable)
- Names and addresses of three or more individuals who will provide letters of recommendation
Please observe that all the documents above should be in English (or for official documents possibly in Swedish).
Writers of recommendation letters should submit their letters directly to firstname.lastname@example.org by the application deadline. Please state the reference number D-2017-0455 in the subject line.
