Visitors to MADALGO


MADALGO in the media


MADALGO advertises several postdoctoral and PhD student positions each year, under the supervision of Professor Lars Arge, Associate Professor Gerth S. Brodal, and Assistant Professor Peyman Afshani at Aarhus University. Positions are advertised in mid fall for a February start and in mid spring for an August start.

PhD student positions

PhD student positions are administered through the Aarhus Graduate School of Science and Technology and include full tuition waiver and a very competitive scholarship. Applications are welcomed from students with at least three years of full-time study. Students with a strong background in the design and analysis of algorithms will be preferred. Students with background in databases and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are also very welcome to apply.

Postdoc positions

MADALGO postdoc positions at the level of Research Assistant Professor of Computer Science are initially for one year, but can be extended with an additional year by mutual consent. MADALGO welcomes postdoctoral researchers with clearly demonstrated experience and skills in the design and analysis of algorithms and data structures. Researchers with experience with I/O-efficient, cache-oblivious or streaming algorithms, as well as with implementation of such algorithms (algorithm engineering experience), or with experience in design and implementation of indexing structures, are preferred. The responsibilities of MADALGO postdocs include work on algorithms for massive dataset problems in collaboration with center researchers, along with modest teaching responsibilities.


The application deadline for fall 2013 positions was November 1, 2013. Spring 2014 positions will be announced here in the spring.

The application deadline for PhD positions was also November 1, 2013. Spring 2014 positions will be announced in the spring. Applicants should apply using the Aarhus Graduate School of Science and Technology application system.
