Several fully funded PhD/postdoc positions in Ontologies/Data Management at TU Dresden

Dear all:

At TU Dresden, we will soon have several fully funded positions for the 
a major collaborative research project (DFG Cluster of Excellence 
SFB-912: HAEC) that has just been granted an extension till 2019. The 
positions are ideal for candidates who want to pursue their PhD, but 
could also be attractive to postdocs (the salary scale is the same and 
will be adjusted depending on prior work experience). See [1] for 
official details.

The research project is a close cooperation between the research groups 
of Franz Baader (knowledge representation), Wolfgang Lehner (databases), 
and myself. Anybody who sees herself or himself at the intersection of 
knowledge representation, database theory, and practical data management 
is most welcome to apply. In particular, we are interested in 
ontology-based knowledge modelling on top of graph databases. English is 
our main language in daily communication, research, and teaching. TUD is 
one of the leading universities in Germany and has been identified by 
the German government as one of eleven "Universities of Excellence". 
Dresden is also a great place to live.

Successful candidates could start almost immediately (from 1st July), 
but because of the very short time between final budget approval and 
project start, we are prepared to fill some positions only later. For 
the same reason, the application deadline on the job announcement is 
already very close [1]. However, if the positions cannot be filled in 
this short time, later applications will also be considered.

I am happy to answer informal queries.

Best regards,



Markus Kroetzsch
