Job opening:
Researcher / Postdoctoral Researcher
(EGR.13 TV-L German public service salary scale)

Knowledge representation and reasoning group (Prof. Dr. Ralf Möller),
Institute "Software, Technology, Systems", Hamburg University of  
Technology, Germany

We are seeking applications from individuals with a very good Master  
degree and/or
Ph.D. in computer science with expertise in description logics,  
geographical information systems, databases

In the two-year project (funded by the German Science Foundation, DFG)  
we will investigate optimization techniques for terminological and geo- 
spatial representation formalisms and reasoning techniques in the  
context of ontology-based information systems. Description logics with  
expressive concrete domains provide the theoretical basis for this  
work. For theoretically investigated representation languages,  
optimized reasoning algorithms will be developed such that practical  
query answering systems combining terminologcial and geo-spatial  
conceptual models can be built. Techniques for ontology-based query  
transformation are applied in the context of geographical information  
systems, which require more expressive conceptual representations than  
were investigated up to now (e.g. concrete domains).

Application deadline:
October 15th 2009 (review of applications will continue until the  
position is filled, i.e. late submissions might also be considered)

Please send applications to the address below.

Best regards,

Ralf Möller
