Open Positions as Researchers (PhD Student or PostDoc)

The first application deadline is April 30, 2019, but applications will be considered until positions are filled.

Position 1: Knowledge Representation - Changes in Ontologies

The position is part of the interdisciplinary DFG-funded project "EVOWIPE - Explicit Forgetting of Ontology-based Knowledge in Product Development" <> which belongs to the DFG priority programme "Intentional Forgetting in Organisations <>". We are working with colleagues in mechanical engineering and have already received an outstanding paper award <> for our research. The aim of the project is to develop methods for the implementation of changes on ontology-based knowledge bases and the application of these methods in product development in mechanical engineering. The position is available as of now and time-limited to 21 months. We plan to extend the project beyond this initial phase. The possibility of acquiring a Ph.D. is given. The official job advertisement can be found here: <>.

Position 2 and 3: Semantic Web, Knowledge Representation, Machine Learning, Text Mining, Eye Tracking

These two positions are research and teaching assistantships provided by Universit├Ąt Koblenz-Landau. We look for PhD students or PostDocs to strengthen our research team in one of the areas mentioned and assist with undergraduate and graduate teaching.
