About the Department
Department of Computer Science at Aalborg University is highly regarded in
Denmark among researchers, students, and external partners because of our
leading research, education, and collaboration. The department currently has
more than 130 scientific staff, 15 administrative staff, and 1300 students.
Our research is recognised internationally and nationally to be at the highest
level of excellence according to community standards, prioritizing quality
over quantity. We balance applications and theory, and societal and scientific
impact, applying research to solve real-world problems, while also conducting
foundational research with potential long-term impact. As part of this, we are
acknowledged and respected for close collaboration with industry and for
applying research to create impact and value for society, in particular within
the area of sustainable development.
Our educations are problem-based and recognised for producing highly skilled
graduates with very high employability, who are experienced with project work
on solving real-world problems in diverse teams and able to think critically
about the technologies they develop. In the workplace, we strive for diversity
in nationality, culture, and gender, success as a team effort, maintaining an
inspiring physical work environment, and ensuring a good work-life balance.
Over the last two years, the department has grown over 35% in scientific
staff, hiring more than 25 assistant/associate professors and 7 full
professors. This expansion is fueled by the success of our educations and our
steady growth in externally funded research projects.
In 2020 we have established a new unit on Aalborg University's Campus in
Copenhagen, responsible for establishing a new bachelor's and master's
educations in “Software”. This unit will over time build its own research
profile and capacity, growing to around 20 scientific staff by 2025.

Security by Digital Design in Denmark (Sb3D)
The positions are within Software Engineering, in the context of Sb3D, the
project Security by Digital Design in Denmark. The vision of the project is to
improve how secure software is developed in Denmark. Sb3D is a project
alliance between leading research groups in Denmark and the Alexandra
Institute as well as Danish industry partners. You can read more here.
The aim is to develop and test benchmarks and improve software process
security that will enable the industry to improve the cybersecurity of their
software-based products and services. The key problem is to explore how
software companies may improve their software security processes while
