Offene Stelle am Forschungszentrum L3S

The L3S Research Center, Hannover, Germany, invites applications for

         one PostDoc and two Ph.D. research position

in the area of Temporal Retrieval, Exploration and Analytics in Web
Archives, in the context of my ERC Advanced Grant ALEXANDRIA,

Within ALEXANDRIA, we are developing new approaches to significantly
advance scalable semantic and time-based indexing for Web archives
using human-compiled knowledge available on the Web, to efficiently
index, retrieve and explore information about entities and events from
the past. In doing so, we focus on the concurrent evolution of this
knowledge and the Web content to be indexed, and take into account
diversity and incompleteness of this knowledge. We further investigate
mixed crowd- and machine-based Web analytics to support long-running
and collaborative retrieval and analysis processes on Web archives,
both on Web archive content as well as on Web archive structure.

ERC Advanced Grants allow exceptional established research leaders to
pursue ground-breaking, high-risk projects that open new directions in
their respective research fields or other domains, and thus provide an
optimal environment for challenging and unique research for PhD
students and PostDoc researchers.

You should possess very good knowledge in one or several areas
relevant for the topics specified in this announcement, with
databases, semantic web, information retrieval, data and stream
mining, graph mining, natural language processing and social networks
as possible background areas. Proficiency in English is expected, as
well as an outstanding M.Sc. / Ph.D. in computer science. German
language skills are useful, but not mandatory.  International
experience during your studies or afterwards, as well as good social
and communication skills are helpful.

The salary amounts to German TV-L E13 (E14 for the PostDoc position),
which is roughly 45.000 to 55.000 Euro gross income per year.

Please submit your application including the usual documents as well
as a list of references, preferrably by email, to
