The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (

about 70 PhD students from more than 30 countries. The research spans 
the whole spectrum from theoretical foundations to applied systems 
development. There is extensive national and international collaboration 
with academia and industry all around the world.

We particularly encourage applicants with interests in:

-Programming language-based security (up to 2 positions):

Applicants shall have a Master’s Degree or corresponding in Computer

The employment is expected to start early 2013 (deviations are 
negotiable). As a Ph.D. student you are employed by Chalmers and will 
receive a salary according to current salary agreements (starting salary 
at present: approx. 25000SEK before taxes). A maximum of 20% of your 
time will be devoted to other duties at the department, mainly teaching. 
The remaining time will be devoted to your own courses and research 
within the project and you are expected to obtain a Ph.D. within a 
maximum of 5 years. You may apply even though you might not have 
completed your degree yet, but expect to do so before the position starts.

Knowledge of Swedish is not a prerequisite for application. English is 
our working language for research and education at Master level. Both 
Swedish and English are used in undergraduate courses. Half of our 
researchers and PhD students are native Swedes; the rest come from more 
than 30 different countries.
