Career Opportunities

BARC is a great place to pursue a career in algorithms research. We host a large number of opportunities at all levels of seniority.

  • PhD and Postdoc opportunities
    BARC will regularly announce PhD and post-doc positions (funded either directly by BARC or by a project hosted at BARC). In addition, we sometimes host post-docs with external funding, e.g. the Marie Skłodowska-Curie program. Please note that these externally funded programs have their own deadlines, not announced here.

  • Permanent positions
    Long-term growth plans at computer science departments of several universities makes Copenhagen an attractive place to pursue a permanent faculty position at every level, from tenure-track to full professorship.

  • Creating positions
    At BARC we have some flexibility in creating positions if we have a great candidate. If you have a strong record at the top conferences STOC, FOCS, and SODA, then you can contact Head of BARC Mikkel Thorup informally and hear about the possibilities. You can, of course, also wait for one of the regular job postings below.
