   4 PhD and 4 Postdoc positions are available at the Dept. of Computing Science
   at Umeå University (Umeå, Sweden), within the research group on "Artificial
   Intelligence for Data Management" led by prof. Diego Calvanese.

   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 PhD positions are fully funded for 4 years, and can be extended by one more
   year through teaching.  Additional funding is available for travel.  PhD
   students become part of the WASP graduate school, which actively supports
   forming a strong multi-disciplinary and international professional network
   between PhD students, researchers and industry.
