2 Postdoc positions at Umeå University (Sweden)


   2 Postdoc positions are available at the Dept. of Computing Science at Umea
   University (Umea, Sweden), within the research group on "Artificial
   Intelligence for Data Management" led by prof. Diego Calvanese.
   (This is part of a larger call aimed at filling in total 4 PhD and 4 Postdoc
   positions.)

   We invite highly motivated applicants interested in carrying out foundational
   and/or applied research in the context of flexible and efficient management of
   large amounts of richly structured data, by relying on semantic technologies and
   (virtual) knowledge graphs.  The research in the "AI for Data Management" group
   touches and combines the areas of:
   - Knowledge Representation (e.g., Description Logics, OWL, Rule-based Languages)
   - Knowledge Graphs and Graph Structured Data
   - Semantic Web
   - Reasoning about Actions and Change
   - Databases
   - Artificial Intelligence

   The research initiative is part of the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and
   Software Program (WASP), Sweden's largest individual research program ever, a
   major national initiative for strategically motivated basic research, education
   and faculty recruitment, addressing research on artificial intelligence and
   autonomous systems.  See https://wasp-sweden.org/.

   The Postdoc positions are for 2 years, but funding is already available to
   extend them for further two years.  Additional funding is available for travel.

   For more details and for applying, see

   Application deadline is 30 November 2020.
