    PhD Student or PostDoc in the field of Data Search, Data Integration, and Data Mining (18 months)

in a third party funded research project performed together with a leading German data mining company as industry partner [1]. The project will develop data search methods for enabling large amounts of intranet and web data to be used for (semi-) automatic table extension. Applicants should have experience in one or more of the following areas and be fluent in Java:

  • Data search, information retrieval, and efficient indexing structures
  • Data integration, schema and instance matching, data fusion
  • Data mining, in particular feature creation and selection

The Data and Web Science Group is one of the largest research groups in the area of data science in Germany, comprising of 5 professors and over 25 PostDocs and PhD students, and thus provides a fruitful ecosystem for researchers.

The project builds on earlier work of the group [2-5].  We seek to fill the position with either a PostDoc researcher or PhD student depending on the individual skills of the candidate. The position is payed according to German regulations (TV-L 13, >3300€ before tax depending on your experience). The earliest possible starting date is March 1, 2017. The initial contract duration is 18 months (until the end of the project in August 2018). It is very likely that we will be able to offer a follow up contract after the successful completion of the project.

Applications should contain a CV, university transcripts, a link to the PhD/master thesis, a publication list (if applicable), and a list of personal references.  All applications received until February 6th, 2017 will receive full consideration, but you are invited to send your application earlier (as we already start interviewing candidates before the deadline).

Applications can be sent via e-mail to ds4dm-project(at)dwslab.de. Questions concerning the position are answered via the same email address by Christian Bizer and Heiko Paulheim.

The University of Mannheim seeks to increase the proportion of women in research and teaching. Preference will be given to suitably qualified women or persons with disabilities, all other considerations being equal.
