Project: ConDOR: Consequence-Driven Ontology Reasoning

The Knowledge Representation and Reasoning Group is offering a fully funded D. Phil (PhD) position at Oxford University's Computing Laboratory. The post is funded by EPSRC as part of the ConDOR project [1]. The aim of the project is to investigate alternative kinds of "consequence driven" reasoning procedures for widely used knowledge representation formalisms, including the W3C's OWL ontology language [2].

Students admitted with a start date between 1st January and 1st October, 2009 will receive a guarantee of 3 years funding. The successful candidate will join an internationally renowned research group [2] working on a cutting edge research problem in an attractive and stimulating environment within one of the worlds leading universities and computer science departments [3].

Further details, including eligibility requirements and application are available from [4]. Prospective candidates are also welcome to contact Dr Yevgeny Kazakov (yevgeny.kazakov@comlab.ox.ac.uk) or Prof Ian Horrocks (ian.horrocks@comlab.ox.ac.uk) for further information about the project and/or the post.
