= open PhD positions at Kno.e.sis Center =

The Ohio Center of Excellence in Knowledge-enabled Computing (Kno.e.sis) 
is one of the largest and most influential academic research centers in 
Semantic Web and some of the Web 3.0 topics in the US. These new 
emerging areas combine a number of traditional CS fields (Artificial 
Intelligence, Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, Knowledge 
Representation & Reasoning, Databases, Data Mining, Information 
Retrieval and Extraction, Distributed Computing, Mobile and Sensor Web, 
High Performance computing).

Students who are seeking world-class research and guidance are welcome 
to apply for our PhD program. We have 15 faculty and over 45 funded 
researchers (mostly PhD students) and funding from major federal 
agencies as well as Microsoft Research, HP Labs, IBM Research and Google.

Students are exceptionally successful (see 
http://www.slideshare.net/knoesis/inauguration-flash - interns at top 
companies, employment in top industry R&D labs, academic institutions 
and startups, alumni have started startups, etc.).

For more information, plese see the folling pages:

If you are interested in joining us, please contact any of our faculty 
members, including me. Students with an MS/ME and those who know what 
they like (and is in our area of expertise) and want in life (those who 
are ambitious) are especially welcome.

Admissions are granted all year around. Strong CS background and 
research inclination is required. All PhD students in the Center have 
financial assistantships (some MS students are also partially supported).

Information on how to apply can be found here: 
The department offers a pre-screening to check whether your credentials 
are strong enough for enrolling: 
If you have done CS courses beyond Bachelor's degree, most of the 
credits can be transferred, reducing the remaining course work.
