PhD student position in "Rational Extensions of Logical Reasoning", Wernigerode, GERMANY


The Hochschule Harz (Harz University of Applied Sciences) conducts the 
project "RatioLog - Rational Extensions of Logical Reasoning", together 
with the Universitt Koblenz-Landau, funded by the German Research 
Foundation (DFG). The project investigates rational agents answering 
questions in natural language in a question-answering system exploiting 
Wikipedia knowledge, by applying non-monotonic reasoning such as abduction 
or defeasible reasoning.

We are looking to recruit a dedicated project staff. The position is 
limited to 2 years, part-time (20 hrs / week). The salary will be 
according to qualification up to salary scale 13 TV-L (cf. 
http://oeffentlicher-dienst.info/tv-l/ost/). The successful candidate will 
pursue a PhD thesis in collaboration with the partner university.

Prerequisites:
The candidate should have a degree, preferably in computer science. Very 
good knowledge in one or more of the following areas is desirable:

* artificial intelligence
* logics in computer science
* declarative programming languages
* theoretical computer science

The Harz University of Applied Sciences wishes to raise the proportion of 
female academic staff and would therefore like to expressly encourage 
qualified women to apply for the position. Preference is given to severely 
disabled candidates, if they have the same level of qualification.

e-mail - to  by 29 April 2013 or by mail
