Fully funded PhD Studentship

This PhD project will be at the intersection of Computing and Mathematics. We expect that 
techniques from mathematical logic and/or algebra are applied in knowledge representation 
and/or database theory. Potential topics include:

(1) Algebraic and model-theoretic approaches to investigate weak modal and description logics.
(2) Algebraic and model-theoretic aspects of conservative extensions in description and temporal logics.
(3) Algebraic and model-theoretic approaches to theory approximation in modal and description logic.
(4) Model theory for logics of data evolving systems.

1. Supervisor: Prof Frank Wolter, Department of Computer Science, University of Liverpool.
2. Supervisor: Prof Silvio Ghilardi, Department of Mathematics, University of Milan.

Start Date: Preferably October 1, 2018

Duration: 3.5 to 4 years

Eligibility: The studentship is only available to EU citizens

Studentship: Stipend £14.777 and Fees £4260 per annum
