The position has funding for 40 months. The successful applicant is expected to start as soon as possible. The PhD programme at AAU requires doing some taught modules, but is otherwise entirely research lead. You must possess a Master's level qualification (a BSc is not sufficient). Applicants with a strong background in compilers (e.g. a final year project, internships with relevant companies) will be preferred but applicants with some background in low level programming and embedded systems (who have an interest in developing their understanding of compilers) will be considered.
