Fully Funded Postdoc Position, U. of Fribourg, Switzerland

The eXascale Infolab (U. of Fribourg, Switzerland) is hiring! We are
looking for a highly qualified postdoctoral researcher in Computer
Science (or related areas), interested in designing and developing
novel information infrastructures to manage big data. The focus of the
present position is on designing  algorithms to semantically extract
and integrate semi-structured data from scientific documents (this is a
joint project with EPFL and Leiden University, enhancing the
http://sciencewise.info/ portal and supported by the Swiss National
Science Foundation).

Candidates must have strong analytical and programming skills, a good
command of the English language, and a genuine interest in designing,
building and publishing innovative approaches and systems to manage new
types of data in very large-scale environments. Salary and social
benefits are extremely competitive (salaries start at 81K CHF for new
postdocs). The eXascale Infolab is supported by a generous grant from
the Swiss National Science Foundation and offers top-notch working
conditions and cutting-edge hardware infrastructures. Our lab is hosted
by the Faculty of Sciences at the University of Fribourg. The faculty
is currently experiencing a formidable expansion and recently received
several large donations both from private and public sponsors. Ideally
situated in the heart of Switzerland and at the foot of the Alps, the
city of Fribourg lies on the linguistic border between the French and
German-speaking parts of the country. In addition to being recognized
as a first-class location for business and education, Fribourg is also
a delightful and exceptional place to live in and is often ranked first
for quality of life in Western Switzerland (see e.g.
