The Data Semantics (DaSe) Lab at the Department of Computer Science at 
Wright State University seeks two or more PhD students to pursue research 
in applied or foundational aspects of Data Semantics, Semantic Web, 
Ontologies, Geo- or Earth Sciences. Funding includes a monthly stipend 
plus tuition costs.

The DaSe Lab (directed by Pascal Hitzler, see 
http://www.pascal-hitzler.de/ for more information) is an internationally 
prominent research group with focus on foundations and applications of 
Semantic Web technologies. Lab members primarily contribute to ongoing 
research projects, but occasionally also get involved in teaching and 
administrative tasks. The new students will likely focus on research 
topics related to Data Science applications in the Earth Sciences.

Applicants should have excellent communication skills and excel in team 
work. Intellectual curiosity, a wide range of interests, and the ability 
and stamina to pursue challenging long-term goals is required. It is 
preferable, but not required, that applicants had previous exposure to lab 
research topics.
