http://www.comlab.ox.ac.uk/news/documents/info-syst-posts-fps.pdf

OXFORD UNIVERSITY COMPUTING LABORATORY
INFORMATION SYSTEMS GROUP
POST-DOCTORIAL RESEARCH ASSISTANT POSTS

The Computing Laboratory has a vacancy for three postdoctoral research assistants to work in the Information Systems Group. The posts are funded by EPSRC as part of the LogMap project (1 post) and ExODA project (2 posts) - see http://www.comlab.ox.ac.uk/projects/LogMap/ and http://web.comlab.ox.ac.uk/projects/ExODA/ for more information. The posts are available immediately and will be of 24 months (for LogMap) or 36 months (for ExODA) duration.

Applicants should have, or expect shortly to obtain, a PhD in computer science or some other relevant discipline, and should have a strong background in theoretical computer science. Experience in some or all of the following areas would be useful but is not essential: logics and automated reasoning; databases and database theory; ontologies and ontology languages; knowledge representation. Implementation experience would also be useful. The posts will require occasional travel to international conferences and workshops.

The successful applicants will join an internationally leading and rapidly growing research group led by Professor Georg Gottlob and Professor Ian Horrocks - see http://web.comlab.ox.ac.uk/research/is/ - and with more than 25 doctoral and post-doctoral researchers working on a range of projects in the area of databases and knowledge representation and reasoning.

Further particulars, including details of how to apply, are available from http://www.comlab.ox.ac.uk/news/documents/info-syst-posts-fps.pdf

The closing date for applications is 22nd October 2010.
