PhD position, Data Semantics/Semantic Web, Wright State University

Pascal Hitzler-2
Funded PhD Student Openings at DaSe Lab:
Data Semantics, Semantic Web, Ontologies, Geo- and Earth Science

Data Semantics Laboratory, directed by Pascal Hitzler
Department of Computer Science and Engineering
Wright State University
Dayton, Ohio, USA

The Data Semantics (DaSe) Lab at the Department of Computer Science at
Wright State University seeks two or more PhD students to pursue
research in applied or foundational aspects of Data Semantics, Semantic
Web, Ontologies, Geo- or Earth Sciences. Funding includes a monthly
stipend plus tuition costs.

The DaSe Lab (directed by Pascal Hitzler, see for more information) is an
internationally prominent research group with focus on foundations and
applications of Semantic Web technologies. Lab members primarily
contribute to ongoing research projects, but occasionally also get
involved in teaching and administrative tasks. The new students will
likely focus on research topics related to Data Science applications in
the Earth Sciences.

Applicants should have excellent communication skills and excel in team
work. Intellectual curiosity, a wide range of interests, and the ability
and stamina to pursue challenging long-term goals is required. It is
preferable, but not required, that applicants had previous exposure to
lab research topics.

Applicants should send their application to
[hidden email]. It shall consist of a single pdf file
containing a detailed curriculum vitae including grades, plus a cover
letter in the email body which includes

* GPA of all degrees completed or under progress, with explanations how
to convert the grading system, if degree is from outside the U.S.

* GRE score (both verbal and quantitative) or date when GRE score will
be available

* Scores of most recent English language tests if non-native English

Applications which do not comply with these requirements may be ignored.
Successful applicants must satisfy the formal requirements for pursuing
a PhD degree in Computer Science at Wright State University, see

Processing of applications will begin immediately and commence until
positions are filled. We expect to make first decisions in July 2014.

Please send applications and inquiries to [hidden email].

It will be posted at when
positions are filled.

Best Regards,

Pascal Hitzler
