AISB opportunities Bulletin Item

Postdoctoral researcher in logic, Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG


The University of Luxembourg seeks to hire an outstanding postdoctoral 
researcher at its Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and 
Trust (SnT, www.securityandtrust.lu ), who 
will be embedded in the Individual and Collective Reasoning Group of Prof. 
Leon van der Torre.

      Your Role

This position is part of the FWO-FNR research project on "Specification 
logics and Inference tools for verification and Enforcement of Policies 
(SIEP)", which is done in cooperation with the group of Prof. Marc 
Denecker in Leuven. It is situated at the crossing of knowledge 
representation (in first order and modal logic), constraint solving, 
datalog, and answer set programming. The goal is to develop extensions of 
FO logics and corresponding inference tools with an eye on applications in 
the area of access and privacy policies.

The Research Associate will lead the work on extensions of FO logics 
suitable for handling certain aspects of policies (e.g. epistemic aspects 
in the context of uncertainty), and produce inference algorithms paving 
the way to applications.

REF : SnT-RA-SIEP-0513 3-year project: fixed-term contract for 2 years, 
possible prolongation by 1 year. Full-time (40 hrs/week)


      Your Profile

  * PhD in Computer Science, Mathematics, or similar.
  * Strong background in logic and knowledge representation.
  * Fluent written and verbal communication skills in English are 
mandatory.
  * Experience in computational logic, reasoning about uncertainty, or
    logics for security will be considered an advantage.
  * We expect commitment, creativity, team working and a critical mind.


      Our offer

The university offers a 2+1 year employment with a highly competitive 
salary, and is an equal opportunity employer. You will work in an exciting 
international environment and will have the opportunity to participate in 
the development of a young university and a newly created research centre.


      Applications

Should be written in English and submitted online 
(http://recruitment.uni.lu), including:

  * Curriculum Vitae (contact address, work experience, publication list).
  * Cover letter indicating the research area of interest and the
    motivation.
  * A research statement addressing specifically the position (300 words).
  * Transcript of all the university-level courses and the achieved 
results.
  * A short description of your PhD thesis (max 1 page).
  * Contact information for 3 referees.

Deadline for applications: June 20th, 2013
