	       BRICS - Basic Research in Computer Science

	  at the Universities of  Aarhus  and Aalborg, Denmark

 This is a call for applications for:

     PhD admission and PhD grants,
     Marie Curie Training Site Fellowships, and
     Research Positions.

 BRICS, a centre  for Basic Research in Computer  Science, is funded by
 the   Danish   National  Research   Foundation.   It  comprises   an
 International PhD School with an associated Research Laboratory.

 BRICS  is  based  on  a  commitment to  develop  theoretical  computer
 science, covering core areas such as:

   - Semantics of Computation,
   - Logic,
   - Algorithms and Data Structures,
   - Complexity Theory,
   - Data Security and Cryptology, and
   - Verification,

 as well as a number of spin-off activities including

   - Web Technology,
   - Quantum Informatics,
   - Bio Informatics, and
   - Networks and Distributed Real-Time Systems.

 BRICS  has  a  substantial  number  of new  PhD  grants  and  research
 positions available,  starting in 2001. Applications  can be submitted
 at  any time.  However, the  application deadline  for PhD  grants and
 positions starting August 2001 is February 15, 2001.

 PhD admission and grants:
   Any student with at least four years of studies in computer science is
   eligible to apply for PhD admission and grants.

 Marie Curie Training Sites Fellowships:
   These  fellowships  are  offered  within Interactive  Computation  -
   Methodology, Security, and Efficiency - and are open to PhD students
   who are nationals of a member  state of the European Community or an
   associated state, and  who wish to spend time  (from three months to
   twelve months) at BRICS, as part of their PhD studies.

 Research positions:
   These positions are open to  applicants already holding a PhD degree
   in computer science.
