The position is open to researchers in any area of computer

programming logic and type theory, functional programming,
concurrency, algorithms for discrete optimisation, and cognition
technology. More information about our department is available on

Both English and Swedish are used as working languages in our
department. As an English speaker, you will have no difficulty at work
and little difficulty in communicating with ordinary people. However,
you will naturally wish to learn Swedish in order to get the most from
your experiences here.
