	Ph.D. / PostDoc Positions at L3S Research Center, Germany
        =========================================================

The L3S Research Center, Hannover, Germany, invites applications for

		     PostDoc and Ph.D. research positions

in the context of three new international research projects which start in
2009 in our Search and Technology Enhanced Learning groups at L3S. The
LivingKnowledge FP7 FET Project, with participation of a leading search
engine, will investigate radically new ways for searching the Web, taking into
account the diversity, bias and opinion present in the vast amount of
information available on the Web. The FP7 SYNC3 project focuses on
collaborative creation of user-provided content with a particular focus on
news items, in collaboration with another leading search engine. Finally,
STELLAR is a European Network of Excellence on Technology Enhanced learning,
with a focus on Web 2.0 infrastructures and collaboration.

Your research will focus on topics in the following areas

    * Search and Information Retrieval
    * Information and Concept Extraction
    * Data Mining and Statistical Analysis
    * User Interface Engineering and Interaction Design
    * Semantic Technologies and Web 2.0
    * Multimodal Communication and Analysis
    * Social Software for Technology Enhanced Learning

in a challenging and unique research environment. Two or three of the
positions will be involved in project management, with the usual EU FP7
project management tasks.

You should possess good knowledge in one or several areas relevant for the
topics specified in this announcement. This includes information retrieval and
search, machine learning, database and information systems, semantic web
technology, natural language processing and linguistic methods, social
software and technology enhanced learning.

Good proficiency in English is expected, as well as an outstanding M.Sc. or
Ph.D. in computer science, media technologies or languages. German language
skills as well as knowledge of a third European language are useful, but not
mandatory.  International experience during your studies or afterwards, as
well as good social and communication skills are helpful.

The salary amounts to German TV-L E13/E14, which is roughly 40.000 to 50.000
Euro gross income per year.

Please submit your application including the usual documents as well as a list
of references, preferrably by email, to
