DOCTORAL POSITION FOR LOGICAL AGENTS RESEARCH
Artificial Intelligence and Intelligent Agents Group
Department of Information Engineering, Computer Science and Mathematics
University of L’Aquila, Italy
The Artificial Intelligence and Intelligent Agents Group is looking for doctoral research candidates in the area of Logical Agents. The position concerns research and development related to the agent-oriented logic programming language DALI, that has been defined and implemented by the group (http://www.di.univaq.it/stefcost/Sito-Web-DALI/WEB-DALI/index.php). DALI in particular extends prolog by introducing events as first-class objects, and by equipping the language with features for reactivity, proactivity, memory and communication.
Applicants should have a masters degree in Computer Science or equivalent. Experience in at least one of Datalog or logic programming (Prolog, ASP, …), is required. Implementation experience is an important asset. In fact, the Ph.D. student should work on DALI on both the theoretical and practical aspects, and would be required to manage and extend the language interpreter.
Appointment to the doctoral position will be for the period of three years, with a net salary of 1.030 Euros (sufficient in Italy to live as a student). Potential candidates should apply for enrollment in the Ph.D. track in Information Engineering and Computer Science of the University of L’Aquila. Please find enclosed the application instructions and the application form.
Applications should be RECEIVED by surface mail by November 23, 2012. Electronic application is unfortunately not allowed.
