The Programming Languages Group of Ghent University invites applicants for a PhD position. The PhD research centers around the development of efficient rule-based programming systems and is part of our new project “Constraint Programming for advanced joins in rule-based programming languages”. The project is under the direction of Tom Schrijvers. The PhD position is for 4 years. It starts between January and October 2012. The position is a fully-funded post.
Ideally, the candidate will also have a strong, documented interest in doing research. Strong problem-solving and programming skills are essential. Prior knowledge of rule-based/query/logic/constraint programming languages and/or database theory is an advantage, but not required.
