Requirements: We are looking for motivated and talented staff members with a very good university degree (M.Sc. or equivalent) in computer science or a related area, if applicable a PhD, and with specific background knowledge or prior experience in one or more of the following topics:
  • Artificial intelligence, especially knowledge representation and reasoning
  • Foundation of databases and query languages
  • Design and implementation of software prototypes

Postdocs should have made significant research contributions to one of the above areas. Candidates should be independent in organising their work, keen on working with teams of experts across other projects, and fluent in English, oral and written.

Tasks: As a member of the team in sub-project „Knowledge-Aware Computing“ of the competence centre ScaDS.AI, you will be researching new methods for representation and processing human knowledge in intelligent systems. Together with other researchers, you will be working on one or several of the following tasks:

  • Development of new approaches for integrating several AI methods (such as machine learning, planning, and optimisation) into knowledge-based systems
  • Design of architectures and algorithms for intelligent, knowledge-based systems
  • Implementation of prototypes and their empirical evaluation

The position is focussed on foundational research. Publication and presentation of research results at international venues are important parts of the work.

As a member of the Chair of Knowledge-Based Systems you will be part of a successful team of experienced researchers of many nationalities and backgrounds. You will work in the vibrant scientific environment of ScaDS.AI and TU Dresden, one of the leading German research universities. Dresden is a highly livable city with a rich cultural life and beautiful nature.
