BARC (Basic Algorithms Research Copenhagen) is new center for foundational research in design and analysis of algorithms. The center, which will be inaugurated on December 1, is led by Mikkel Thorup. We aim to attract top talent from around the world to an ambitious, creative, collaborative, and fun environment in Copenhagen, Denmark. Other core scientists in the center are Stephen Alstrup, Thore Husfeldt, and Rasmus Pagh. The center is part of a larger effort increasing the ...number of faculty members in algorithms research, and making Copenhagen a hub for algorithms research. The BARC center has received funding of over 6 million USD for the next 6 years from VILLUM Fonden to employ graduate students and post-docs, and to attract a stream of long- and short-term visitors. People interested in BARC should follow this page on Facebook and visit the web pages at barc.ku.dk — the first assistant/associate professor, post-doc, and PhD student positions are already announced, with deadlines in November and December.
