The Hochschule Harz (Harz University of Applied Sciences) conducts the project "RatioLog - Rational Extensions of Logical Reasoning", together with the Universität 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.

Please send your application with the usual documents - preferably by e-mail - to
