Our faculty works on various areas of theoretical computer science and its applications to algorithm engineering and other sciences such as DNA computation. Our faculty and students have won various prestigious awards, including the best paper awards in FOCS (2019), UCNC (2018), ICALP (2017) and DISC (2017), as well as two ERC starting grants (2014 and 2017).
Interested in joining us?
Aalto CS constantly looks for strong faculty members in all areas of computer science, including theory. The deadline is generally in January every year.
There are regular openings for postdoc and doctoral student positions.
For students in the Helsinki area, the best way to start exploring theory is to take our courses and/or to attend our weekly theory seminar. Feel free to drop an email to any of us if you need help browsing the courses.
