Dear DListas:

At TU Dresden, we will soon have several fully funded positions for the 
a major collaborative research project (DFG Cluster of Excellence 
SFB-912: HAEC) that has just been granted an extension till 2019. The 
positions are ideal for candidates who want to pursue their PhD, but 
could also be attractive to postdocs (the salary scale is the same and 
will be adjusted depending on prior work experience). See [1] for 
official details.

The research project is a close cooperation between the research groups 
of Franz Baader, Wolfgang Lehner (databases), and myself. Anybody who 
sees herself or himself at the intersection of knowledge representation, 
database theory, and practical data management is most welcome to apply. 
Of course, collaborations with other Dresden KR groups (e.g., Sebastian 
Rudolph) are also possible and welcome. English is our main language in 
daily communication, research, and teaching. TUD is one of the leading 
universities in Germany and has been identified by the German government 
as one of eleven "Universities of Excellence". Dresden is also a great 
place to live.

Successful candidates could start almost immediately (from 1st July), 
but because of the very short time between final budget approval and 
project start, we are prepared to fill some positions only later. For 
the same reason, the application deadline on the job announcement is 
already very near [1]. However, if the positions cannot be filled in 
this short time, later applications will also be considered.

I am happy to answer informal queries.

Best regards,
